Stadia is Google's cloud gaming platform that launched last month.

Stadia can be accessed via the internet across devices such as TVs, laptops and Pixel smartphones.

At the activations, visitors can get Stadia-branded items, enjoy holiday snacks, meet YouTube creators and play games via Stadia. Free gifts can be obtained.

The LA event will take place on 11 December on Hollywood Boulevard. The London activation will be at Boxpark in Shoreditch, also on 11 December. In Paris, the pop-up will be held at Webedia Millennium on 13 December.
