Starting November 9, 2022, Stadia will attempt to automatically process refunds for all purchases of games, add-on content and subscriptions fees other than Stadia Pro made through the Stadia store. We ask for your patience as we work through each transaction and that you refrain from contacting Customer Support as they will not be able to expedite your refund during this time. For more information, check the Announcement FAQ.

Let players join your multiplayer game without an invite

Multiplayer games like Far Cry 6 let other players join your game directly from your profile without an invite from you. This feature, available only in selected games, is off by default.

To enable it, go into your privacy settings under ‘Your activity’ and then ‘Current game’ and then turn on Join your current game. To change who can join games from your profile, choose All players or Friends. Only players in the group that you select will be able to join your game.

Stop players from joining

If you don't want other players to join your game without an invite, go into your privacy settings under ‘Your activity’ and then ‘Current game’ and then turn off Join your current game. You can also select Only you or Private in the drop-down menu.
