Google announced that paid version of the Stadia, Stadia Pro — the one with 4K, 60fps, HDR streaming — will launch this November with $9.99 per month price tag, game sold separately.
Users still have to purchase games separately to play(and own) them. However, Pro members will receive discounts and occasional free games. But these free games will be removed if users cancel their subscription.
Stadia Base, free version of the service, will launch sometime in 2020 with up to 1080p/60fps streaming.
In addition, Google also revealed the list of the games that would be on it’s store in launch day, which includes:

Google’s Project Zero, a team finding security flaws in it’s own products as well as other firms, exposed high severity flaw in macOS kernel.

Also, Project Zero generally report the problems to the manufacturers privately and give them 90 days to resolve the problem before publicly disclosing it, which means that Apple couldn’t — or didn’t — fix the flaw for 90 days.
