Our anonymous Google Chromecast doesn’t come with Stadia, but it does make sure it works

Yesterday, we bought a new Google Chromecast, though it hasn’t been announced. Surprisingly, it didn’t come with Google Stadia – out of the 12 streaming services clearly featured on the front of the B streaming X, Google’s own cloud gaming service was not one of them. We did not find it already installed on that device.

But we can confirm that Stadia works on a completely new “Google TV” device. When EdgeChris Welch loaded the Stadia Android app side by side on his new Chromecast, he blew up our existing cloud games very nicely. It suggests that Google should have no problem bringing official support to Chromecast, assuming it’s not already doing so at tomorrow’s Google hardware event.

And, considering the અમે 50 price tag we’ve given to the new Chromecast, it means you’ll soon be able to play Stadia on your TV for less than 20 dollars. Originally, the studio on Google TV. Limited to Chromecast Ultra of 69.99. Admittedly, the new Chromecast does not come with the Ethernet adapter in Bux, although we can confirm that at least one third-party USB-C adapter works.

If you want to try this yourself, know that sideloading apps on Android TV will take a while; In addition to clicking the specific “Unknown Sources” switch on your settings page, you’ll need to find and trust an APK from your device, and find a way to sling the file into your dongle. There are apps that will do it wirelessly or through the cloud, or you can go the old-fashioned ADB way. You may also need to tick this flag in the Stadia app:

And even then, we still can’t say How good Experience will work. With the best state of the Wi-Fi router next to the TV, it looks very responsive, and it automatically puts our TV in low-mode mode. But we don’t seem to be buying games in the app yet – trying to do so causes the Stadia to crash – and we’ll test with the Xbox controller instead of the official Stadia.

But as Android Police As Google points out, Google seems to be rapidly improving the silent compatibility of the Stadia app with Android TV, so we’d be surprised if the company doesn’t announce the launch of Android Face TV for Stdia for a long time.
