You can also use XYZ tiles. In this video Klas Karlson explains how to load them.

If you do not see the browser pannel, go to view/...


if you want to use OpenLayersPlugin check experimental flag under settings (like @Joseph pointed out): If you want to use QuickMapServices then load the plugin and go to settings and then to the More services Tab and Click the "Get contributed pack"
