After a long wait, Stadia has successfully launched Android TV and is now fully playable on all Android TV and Google TV devices. On 23 June, Google officially announced that Stadia could play on Android TV and Google TV devices. Now, users need to sign into their accounts on their devices, and the app will help them connect a controller and set up a game.
Also, the Stadia for Android TV app is now available to download from the Play Store. Before 23 June, the app didn’t allow users to play Stadia games. Instead, a “Coming soon” message was displayed on the screen.
“To get started, you can either head to the Play Store from your computer and install the app remotely or install it directly from your device with Google TV by saying “Stadia app” to the Google Assistant,” shared Google in a blog post.
Apart from supporting Chromecast, Stadia can also be sampled on other Google TV devices by opting into experimental support. This can be done by installing the Stadia app on Google TV devices. After launching the app, you’ll have to select the option to “continue” at the opt-in screen.
Touted to be the future of cloud gaming, Stadia had been missing from Android TV devices and Chromecast with Google TV. Now that Google’s gaming app has arrived on these devices, users can finally enjoy a better gaming experience.
To celebrate Stadia’s platform expansion, Google TV owners with Chromecast can check their inbox to find a promo code to get a discounted Stadia controller for $34.50. The offer is valid till 30 July.
