Google Stadia Will Support The Latest Google Pixel Smartphones at Launch

Google reveals more Stadia details, including answers about multiplayer and VR

Stadia is a cloud-based service which will stream games to players via an internet connection instead of requiring them to be downloaded, with Google's servers handling much of the processing power. According to Google, Stadia players will still have access to their games if publishers abandon the project. In a Google FAQ page update that TechRadar points out, the company clarified which mobile devices will actually be able to support Stadia when it launches this November-and unfortunately, the answer isn't "all of them".

A Stadia Pro subscription will cost $9.99 Dollars / $11.99 CAD / £8.99, and includes streaming up to 4K and access to a growing catalogue of "older" games starting with Destiny 2 and expanding from there, but you'll need to purchase the latest games outright if you want to play them on day one.

Stadia Partners is a programme through which studios can try and be part of the streaming platform, with Corcoran saying that this is so Google can "tailor-make a support plan that will work for your title and fit with the rest of our portfolio". A special redemption code will then be sent to the email account provided. The most interesting new bit of information is that users will not lose games that they have paid for if a publisher or studio decides to pull out of the platform. However, the Stadia account will support a maximum of four Stadia controllers during local multiplayer game play.

How many controllers can I use at the same time?

More questions have been asked and received answers on the FAQ page. However, you can also connect the controller to a phone, a tablet or a PC via a USB cable plugged into its USB-C port.

For gameplay, a Stadia Controller uses Wi-Fi while depends on BLE for setup.

Stadia Pro subscribers may enjoy the 60 FPS quality 4K HDR of game streaming.

Pixel 3 and 3a owners are in luck, plus all those with Chrome-running tablets. "At the moment, we have no news to share with respect to VR support in Stadia".

In any case, it will be possible to buy games and manage content from any device with Android M or iOS 11 (or higher versions).
