Stadia could soon see users able to communicate with each other via text.
At least, according to 9to5Google, that is.
A recent report suggests that Google is looking set to incorporate text messaging in a new update. As 9to5Google notes, whilst digging around Stadia’s 2.16 update, their APK Insight team found some hints towards messaging.
Included in their find are references, such as; “Message History panel title”, “Text chat”, “ChatMessages”, and more.
9to5Google also noted how they found a new privacy setting – though, did admit that this was added in a previous version of Stadia but has still not been made available. The privacy setting in question quite literally states:
“Privacy setting defining who can message you”.
“Send you chat messages”.
The fact that Stadia doesn’t already have a messaging application available would be quite baffling. At least, it would be, if this weren’t Stadia we were talking about.
