The launch of Stadia happens this Fall with an official time frame of November, and despite Google holding its official Stadia Connect livestream on YouTube to announce the release date, pricing, and games information for the platform, there are still many unanswered questions that consumers want to get details on. If you're one of those consumers then you may be in luck because Stadia is having an official AMA on Reddit tomorrow.
If you're unfamiliar with AMAs, the acronym stands for Ask Me Anything, meaning users on Reddit can go into the post and ask their questions in the comments and those participating in the AMA will do their best to answer all of them. This however does not mean that every single question will be answered and for the ones that are it's also possible that you won't get the answer you want. Just because this is an AMA doesn't mean you'll get straight answers to every question.
With that said Google will no doubt do try to give any informative answers that it can, but some will likely drum up responses such as "we can't answer that at this time" or "we'll have more to share in the future." Still, if you have questions about the platform that haven't been answered yet then this is your chance to try and get that information.
The official Stadia Reddit AMA will be happening on the r/Stadia subreddit tomorrow morning at 10AM Pacific Standard Time, and will be hosted by Stadia's Director of Product Andrey Doronichev. Some helpful tips if you're planning to attend this AMA; First, be logged into Reddit and head to the official AMA post, or at the very least the r/Stadia subreddit as early as possible so you can be among the first to ask your question(s).
The early bird gets the worm as they say and quite frankly the best chance you have of getting an answer is if you're question is towards the top, which means you'll want to be one of the first to comment on the post. Second, don't waste a question on something Google has already given the answer to. Brush up on everything about Stadia by going through the official FAQ before the AMA goes live.
If you ask a question that has already been answered either in the FAQ or in the Stadia Connect stream, or somewhere else on Twitter or other official Stadia social channels, and you get a response in the AMA, it's unlikely you'll get to ask another that gets a response, which means you just wasted a chance to get the answer to something that hasn't been answered yet. While you're looking over any details that already have answers you'll want to start thinking of good questions to ask as well.
While the AMA probably won't lead to answers for everything people want to know, there is still a pretty decent chance that a lot of questions will get good answers as the launch of Stadia is a lot closer now, and it's important to remember that this won't be the only source of information, as more Stadia Connect events are sure to happen in the future too. Even if you miss the chance to ask something, someone else may ask the same question, so keeping an eye on the AMA post even after it's over isn't a bad plan.
INCOMING! Stadia's first ever @Reddit AMA is this Thursday at 10AM PDT.Advertisement
