Stadia Pro is Google's premium $9.99/month offering that gives you the ability to play in 4K resolution, provides discounts on select titles from the Stadia library, and lets you claim free Stadia Pro games from a long list any time you want as long as you're subscribed. Whether you're a new Stadia user that got a free trial or a longtime user that's looking to make some changes, knowing how to manage (or cancel) your Stadia Pro membership is important. Here's how you can manage your Stadia Pro subscription, confirm which credit card Google has on file, or simply cancel your subscription.

Now you're a Pro!

Stadia Pro costs about $10 a month (or $12 a month if you live in Canada), so it's worth confirming which card you want to be charged before it renews. If you choose to cancel your Stadia Pro subscription, you will retain access to your Stadia Pro benefits until your service concludes. Of course, you can still enjoy gaming on Stadia without a Stadia Pro subscription, but you'll have to pay for games at full price. And if you decide to resubscribe in the future, then you'll instantly regain access to all past Pro games you had previously claimed, including those freebies!

Just be sure you're logged into the Google account that you used to sign up for Stadia or the subscription won't show up in the Google Play Store.
