Of course, that figure isn't representative of the entire Stadia userbase, but the cloud gaming platform clearly hasn't taken the world by storm just yet. There are several reasons for this, but a limited game library is probably one of the key factors.

Compared to consoles or even digital distribution platforms like Steam, Stadia's game line-up is relatively small -- it has roughly 42 games at the moment, and some of them aren't even released yet (like Cyberpunk 2077 or Watch Dogs: Legion).

However, Google hopes to improve the situation this year. Throughout 2020, Google wants to add more than 120 new titles to Stadia, in addition to ten new platform-exclusive games set for launch in the "first half" of the year. We don't know what those exclusives will be, but Google is currently in talks with its partners to share more information "soon."

On top of that, 2020 will bring a few other long-awaited features to the Stadia ecosystem. To name a few, 4K game streaming and "further Assistant functionality" will arrive for the Stadia web client, and Google wants to add in support for "additional" Android phones (we're not sure what models they have in mind, though).

It's way too early for Google to have exclusives imo, but I'm def interested in seeing how this plays out. Google is about to throw a lot of money at this.

120 games in a year isn't really very many. Especially if most of them are titles that have been on sale elsewhere for months.
