Google has adjusted its requirements for Stadia, which will start in November, so that the streaming service can be played on many more Google smartphones. At first, only the Pixel 3 / 3a (XL) was mentioned, but now the list of supported devices has been expanded to include the present and the past. Stadia can be used initially on the following smartphones: Google Pixel 2 (XL), Google Pixel 3 (XL), Google Pixel 3a (XL), and Google Pixel 4 (XL).

But that’s not the only news about Stadia, because there is also new information about the controller. Unfortunately, this is quite sobering, because the Stadia controller will initially only be usable with a USB-C cable connected. If you go for a Chromecast Ultra, no cable is necessary. But if using a PC or smartphone, the Stadia controller can only be used with the controller connected, at least in the initial phase.

“At launch, wireless play with the Stadia controller is limited to Chromecast Ultra. Or the devices require a wired connection. “

That will certainly resolve itself in time. Stadia kicks off on November 19, as Google announced at its latest hardware event.
