Even though the service was off to a rough start, Google kept on updating it and adding new features, such as YouTube streaming, and the long-overdue iOS support.

How to use Stadia on any Android phone

Let’s say you’ve just gotten yourself a Galaxy Z Fold 2, or an S21 Ultra. But they’re not on the list? There’s a way to use Stadia on any phone that’s running Android 6.0 Marshmallow or better. Here’s how. 

  • You’ll need an account and at least one game to try this. 
  • Open the Stadia app on your phone and check if there’s a Play button under the game you want to play. 
  • If not, go to Settings, and select Experiments
  • On the next screen just toggle “Play on this device” and you’re all set and ready to play. 

Bear in mind that you may experience bugs and glitches, as Stadia hasn’t been officially optimized for your phone (yet).

How to play Google Stadia on your iPhone

Last year, Google finally added official support for iOS devices to its cloud gaming service, so you no longer need clever workarounds or third-party apps to play Stadia games on your iPhone. What's more, the official Stadia controller is supported, as well as third-party controllers (via Bluetooth) such as the DualShock 4 Controller and the Xbox One Controller.

All you need is a device with iOS version 14.3 or greater, a Stadia account, and some games in your library. You can add the Stadia web app shortcut to your home screen by following the instructions below:

  • On your iPhone or iPad, launch the Safari app.
  • Navigate to and sign into your Stadia account.
  • A prompt will appear letting you know you can play in your browser. Select Got it.
  • The Stadia home screen will appear in Safari.
  • In Safari, select the Share icon .
  • On an iPhone, this icon appears at the bottom of your phone's screen.
  • On an iPad, this icon appears at the top right of your tablet's screen.
  • A share menu will appear. Select the "Add to Home Screen" option. It will appear next to a plus icon.
  • Return to your device's home screen and tap the Stadia web app icon.
