Earn achievements as you play

When you play games on Stadia, you can unlock special awards called achievements. You get achievements when you complete specific goals in a game, like finishing a level or defeating a certain number of enemies. Achievements let you and your friends track game accomplishments, and are tied to your account.

You can view your achievements on stadia.com, on a TV using Chromecast Ultra, or in the Stadia app Stadia icon.

Tip: Not all games support achievements, but if you've been playing Stadia since launch, you may have already unlocked some.

  • If you're using a computer keyboard, press Shift + Tab.

While you view an achievement, your game will continue to run in the background. You'll see details of the achievement, including the date you unlocked it.
