Stadia Finally Rolling Out Wireless Functionality for Controllers

After Google touted their platform as the future of gaming, Stadia has finally caught up with 2006. Announced in their recent “This Week on Stadia” update, browser-based play will no longer require a USB-C cable.

This will be a a welcome change for Stadia enthusiasts playing on PC or laptop, who can now cut the cable and enjoy PS3/360-era freedom. The feature was previously only available on Chromecast.

Granted, the tech used in Stadia’s controllers is a little more complex than Bluetooth. However, that doesn’t change the fact that Goooglle advertised this as a key feature of their service. A feature that has taken Google nearly 6 months to deliver.

“Starting this week, you can now use the Stadia Controller to play wirelessly on your laptop and desktop.

You no longer need to connect your Stadia Controller physically to your computer to play your favourite games. You’ll be able to link your Stadia Controller and Stadia.com through your Wi-Fi network and play without a USB-C cable connection”

r/stadia seems quite happy about this. Some are reporting that the function can be used on the browsers of unsupported phones.

To connect your controller wirelessly, head to stadia.google.com, sign in and click on the controller button. Hold the Stadia button until it rumbles, then enter the code in your stadia browser app. Then you’re good to go.
