A little bit of clarification.
Update 06/18/2019: Google's Patrick Seybold has told IGN that the Stadia users will actually be able to change their username at any time, but will only offer this change for free once.
Seybold also clarified the name change and the one-time change is not a Stadia Pro exclusive feature. But he didn't talk about what the name change service would cost. We update you on what we find out more.
The stage, Google's foray on the home console / streaming market, allows users to change their names at any time they want, according to a Google spokesperson.
In a report originally by PCGamesN, Google confirmed that it has adopted a naming service that allows users to change their screen ID as long as the name they want is not already taken by another user.
Patrick Seybold, director of comms for Stadia, told PCGamesN that the process will be "relatively straightforward" (the words of PCGamesN) when Stadia launches its Pro service in November, while "Founders Edition" becomes available to early buyers. The service will be available to the public as a whole once by 2020.
PlayStation and Xbox Name Call Comparisons
However, Google did not confirm whether a fee would be associated with changing a username. PlayStation charges users $ 4.99 per. Change while Xbox charges $ 9.99. Username changes only recently became a reality for PlayStation users back in April, but PC players using Steam have always been able to change their username at will.
