According to recent information, the app for Google’s upcoming game streaming service, Stadia, has emerged on the Play Store slightly ahead of the service’s official launch, which is expected by the end of November.
Google’s upcoming game streaming service, known as Stadia, is set to be released this month. The streaming service has been a topic of discussions in the gaming community ever since it was announced, and now that the time for its release is approaching, there has been a lot of excitement and expectation.
However, Google has decided to release the app for its new service slightly in advance, and as a result, it can already be downloaded from the Play Store.
Those who subscribe to the company’s upcoming service will be able to play via Chrome, or even their TV provided that they have Chromecast Ultra. There will also be a variety of games available, including the likes of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, Destiny 2, and many others. Some of these games will also be able to run on Pixel devices.
Who Can Use the App?
The newly-released app is currently only available for the mentioned devices, but Google plans to release additional versions for iOS, as well as other Android devices. Once they download the app, users will be able to manage their controllers, accounts, buy specific titles, as well as play the games.
Users will first have to sign in with their Google account, of course, which is when the app will ask for an invite code, either from the Stadia Founders package, or Premiere Edition package.
The information on the Play Store also says that users will be able to access their entire game library directly from their Home tab. On the other hand, there is also an Explore tab, which will likely feature community posts, relevant links to YouTube, Discord, Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and potentially some other platforms.
Finally, players will also be able to see when their friends are online, as well as which games they are playing at any given time. As for specific versions of devices that will be able to support Stadia initially, those will include Chrome OS tablets, browsers, Chromecast Ultra, as well as Pixel models 2, 3, 3a, and 4.
