Stadia is Google’s gaming platform that lets you instantly play your favorite video games on compatible devices. You can’t play games on an iOS device, but you can use this app to set up and manage Stadia on other devices.
Access to Stadia is free — you only pay for the games.
Play games on many screens you own
Play Stadia games across laptops, desktops, and select mobile devices (not including iOS devices). You can also play on TVs if you have the Stadia Controller and a Google Chromecast Ultra. See https://support.google.com/stadia for more details.
No more downloads
The moment you claim or buy a game, it’s ready to play — no waiting for downloads or game patches. Stadia updates games behind the scenes so you never have to wait.

Great gaming but small library
Stadia is fun and works amazing. All my games look like I’m playing on an actual console. The only problem I have is there is not enough games. What I mean is that there’s not a lot of online games like fortnite, apex, gta v, call of duty, and etc. It would be nice to add these games because most of them you can’t play without a console and some you have to meet certain requirements. It would be fun to have these because then I wouldn’t have to go out and by a console I could instead just buy them on stadia and stay at home and also change between what I want to play on.
Amazing, just one thing.
This is an amazing service. Works great, and looks great. The one main thing you messed up on was (drumroll) ADVERTISING. The way you made the the service sound on the surface was: Hey, this service is available for ANYONE, and will give you UHD, 60fps gameplay, no matter what. This is not what it is. My personal opinion, if you have a newish Router that has a 5ghz Network and a 2.4Ghz network, and you have at least a 20mb bandwidth, if you only connect the stadia to the 5Ghz and move it close to the router, that is the minimum for playing UHD graphics. If you cannot do these, then do not get this, however, if you can do this, or do better (30mb+ Bandwidth) then this service is for you. I personally think if you have an above average WiFi plan, then this looks, and performs much better then a console, otherwise, just buy an Xbox One S/PlayStation 4.
I have a gigabit internet connection and have tried Stadia on my iPhone 12 Pro Max and on my 55” 4K tv using the chromecast ultra and controller combination (hard wired to Ethernet). It has worked far better than I expected and, so far, matches the performance and graphics of my PS4 Pro. Obviously this is a bandwidth heavy technology so if you don’t have a reliable and fast connection, you’re going to be disappointed.
Also, in case it isn’t obvious, you don’t play games in this app itself. This app helps you figure out how Stadia works and lets you manage your game library. My 5 star rating here is both for the app itself and the overall service (which I think has the potential to completely nullify the need for individual gamers to own expensive consoles and gaming computers in the near future).
