The updated FAQ entry is consistent with comments Google's vice president and head of Stadia, Phil Harrison, made to GamesRadar a couple of weeks ago.

After they receive the code, it can be used on a "different email account".

The main draw of the Google Stadia game streaming platform is that it can deliver triple-A gaming experiences, no matter where you are, over the internet with very little lag.

Alongside availability of the service and games, Google previously confirmed the pricing of its game streaming service.

So, it is not yet known how beneficial it will be for the publishers, who may initially join Stadia but leave it later.

The more cynical view, however, is that Stadia is already feeling pressure from publishers to limit the windows of exclusivity and marketing titles for the platform, just months out from its official release.

Developers could be looking to experiment their titles with Stadia and later decide to pull the game because they might not see a lot of money in it or because competing for cloud-based platforms could outbid Stadia for exclusive rights for the title. "We're always looking for new games and pitches, so we absolutely do want to talk to any of you who are interested". However, the company clarified that, should Stadia support VR, gamers may have to wait sometime before seeing them happen.

Google also mentions that controllers were created to be connected to WiFi for gameplay but they can be hardwired to a PC, tablet, or smartphone via a USB-C cable if the user prefers. To play a game, you need a WiFi connection. The FAQ also mentions that the controller will use Bluetooth for setup and connect using Wi-Fi.

Take note that Stadia will exclusively help mobile gameplay on a restricted variety of gadgets at launch, although, namely the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a (3a, 3a XL, 3, 3XL) phones, as well as tablets running Chrome OS. Google says any tablet running the Chrome OS will be able to enjoy Stadia in the future.

Google also addressed a few more questions surrounding the Stadia Controller, starting with its compatibility on other platforms. The support page also touched on which Chromecast devices will support Stadia at launch... It will, however, support local multiplayer titles, said the company.

At this time, we have no news to share regarding VR support on Stadia.
