    A message about Stadia and our long term streaming strategy



    All software and hardware purchases made through Google Play Store will be refunded and access to already obtained titles will be served till January 18, 2023, supposedly the day Stadia goes offline forever.

    I am surprised that it was killed "so lately" for being a google product. To be honest, I am sad for all those players having purchase games on those platforms seeing accounts vanished and for those devs that wasted time and resources to adapts their games to that non-sense of google thing.

    Good thing you can ask refunds for the controllers, chromecast and game you bought.

    Before the Stadia released I actually asked if the controllers can be used like Xbox One controllers on PC, and the person on the official twitter account responded with yes...... long story short no they cannot.

    I can use my Stadia controller on the PC without a problem, connected via USB cable.

    Can it connect via Bluetooth? once it released I was told it does not work.

    If it does then that's pretty cool, at least it's not plastic waste.

    I never really understood why Google bothered with this in the first place. I could see how maybe the unused systems could use their processing power for number crunching but I think the amount of development time they'd put into this wouldn't pay off.

    I see it as one of those situations where Google was living in their own bubble and didn't realize how unrealistic their goal was outside of it. If you were connected to Google Fiber then perhaps the latency was tolerable. Most of us aren't connected to that, and those who are probably make enough money to just buy their own gaming system.
