You can now use Google Stadia on Non-Google Phones!

Google Stadia, until recently, has been exclusive only to Google's line of phones, the Google Pixel. However, Google has announced that Stadia will be available on non-google devices as well!

The list of phones include...

  • Samsung S8
  • Samsung S8+
  • Samsung S8 Active
  • Samsung Note 8
  • Samsung S9
  • Samsung S9+
  • Samsung Note 9
  • Samsung S10
  • Samsung S10+
  • Samsung Note 10
  • Samsung Note 10+
  • Samsung S20
  • Samsung S20+
  • Samsung S20 Ultra
  • Asus ROG Phone
  • Asus ROG Phone II
  • Razer Phone
  • Razer Phone II

You may notice that Apple devices are still not supported. On top of that, Google Stadia is still not available widespread for android. So, unless you have one of the listed phones, you will still not be able to use Stadia. Or if you can get it to work, it will be unsupported.

You can use wireless gamepads with Stadia on these devices, however, the Stadia controller will not work wirelessly, and will need to be plugged in. Google is working on a system that will allow the controller to connect via WiFi vs the standard Bluetooth connection.

Compared to other Cloud Gaming platforms like NVIDIA's GeForce Now, Microsoft's xCloud, and Blade's Shadow, Stadia is slacking behind. With limited availability on mobile and a not so great launch, Google Stadia needs to step up their game!

So, now that there are more devices to use Stadia with, will you be using one of these to play on Stadia? Or will you stick with one of the other Cloud Gaming solutions? Leave a comment below!
