Announcing self-serve Stadia name change

What’s in a (Stadia) name?

We on the Stadia team know how important it is to capture the right energy when creating usernames. Your Stadia name is no different! Rolling out through tomorrow, September 1st, you will have the ability to manually change your Stadia name once every 180 days since your last name change or account creation, whichever is more recent. Here’s how it works:

  1. Tap or click on your profile icon in the top-right corner of your Stadia session.
  2. Select “Stadia Settings.”
  3. Under “Stadia Name & avatar,” select “Change your name.”
  4. Enter in the Stadia name you want.
  5. If the desired Stadia name fits our guidelines, you will be given the option to confirm your choice.

Important things to note:

  • This feature is currently supported only on Web.
  • Please note that all Founder names must be unique. If your desired Stadia name is unavailable, a different name must be selected to preserve the un-appended status. Founders may always opt-in to an appended Stadia name by contacting Stadia support.
  • Founders will have the ability to change their Stadia name back to an un-appended name after 180 days of changing their name to one with appended numbers.
  • Non-Founders may not “upgrade” to an un-appended Stadia name by changing their own Stadia name.
  • See this Help Center article for more information on Stadia name selection guidelines.
