Party Stream for Android and a Ubisoft promotion are ready for Stadia 4.33.

Our team has discovered early indications that Party Stream may be coming to Android with Stadia 4.33, which is now rolling out via the Google Play Store, as well as a potential forthcoming Ubisoft offer.

Regarding APK Insight: We’ve decompiled the most recent version of an app that Google put on the Play Store in our “APK Insight” post. These files, known as APKs for Android apps, can be disassembled to reveal several lines of code that allude to potential future features. Remember that Google might or might not ever deploy these features, and our understanding of what they are might be limited. However, we’ll endeavor to make those that are nearly finished show you how they’ll seem in the event that they do ship. Read on with that in mind.

SOCIAL MEDIA FOR ANDROID Party Stream, a new tool that Stadia revealed last month, makes it incredibly simple to share your games with pals. To allow everyone in your Stadia party to watch, instead of having to launch a YouTube livestream and share the URL with your friends, you can now simply enable Party Stream.

At debut, only the online app had access to that feature; there were no Party Stream alternatives for Android. The “Ask to Watch” button in the party menu on the viewer’s end is meant to ask your friend to start streaming if they’d like. Currently, asking a friend who is streaming on an Android device to stop playing simply prompts them to recommend you ask them verbally.

Party Stream may be coming to the Android app shortly, according to new Ask to Watch-related code found in Stadia 4.33.

As of right now, there are no indications that Party Stream will be expanded to include Stadia, such as the ability to manually turn on a stream for your group. Instead, it appears that you will at least be able to activate the stream in response to a friend’s request.

PROMOTIONAL TRIAL FOR UBISOFT Stadia 4.33 also adds additional text and code relating to Ubisoft elsewhere in the release. You may now link your Stadia account to your Ubisoft membership, which enables you to stream all of Ubisoft’s Stadia titles for free without the need for a Stadia Pro subscription.

It appears from recently added material that Ubisoft is getting ready to launch a longer free trial of the program. The service would allegedly be free till October 10 according to the promotional language. New clients only receive one-week trials from Ubisoft on average.

Up until October 10th, try Ubisoft for free.

Given that this Saturday’s Ubisoft Forward presentation is exactly one month away, we posit that the publisher might reveal a month-long free play period at the event.

As you might anticipate, it appears you’ll need to actually “subscribe” to Ubisoft in order to benefit from the month-long promotional trial. You should be able to “cancel anytime” after the trial starts, according to other material in the app.

Your accounts have been connected. Start your Ubisoft trial by subscribing.
But as always, nothing about this is official until it’s published in the app or made public.

WORDING CHANGES FOR DATA USE Another interesting fact is that Stadia has modified the way it talks about how much data it uses. Depending on your Stadia Pro status and what your device can support, you can select from a few different resolution options on the “Performance” page of Stadia’s settings. With each of these choices, the expected data usage has been changed from “may reach” to “is normally under,” as follows:

Before:
12.6 gigabytes of data could be used every hour.
After:
Usually, less than 12.6 gigabytes of data are used per hour.

This is probably only a semantic issue, but it also leaves open the possibility that in some circumstances a Stadia session will use more data than anticipated.
