Google FAQ Update Summary
Even if the publisher decides to leave the platform, you won’t lose access to your games at Google Stadia. This is one of the things the tech giant uncovers in a comprehensive update of the service FAQ, which Google promises to have the right to play when you buy it on the game platform. This means that you can still access other players, even if it’s not time to buy. “Except for unexpected situations,” the FAQ says, “Stadia will try to keep any title purchased for the game ready.”
In addition, the company has confirmed that Stadia will support a multiplayer game title, including seat-based clusters – in fact, you can use up to four Stadia controllers to play local multiplayer games.
Speaking of the Stadia controller, the SSS says that it uses BLE for installation, but is connected via WiFi to play games. However, you can also connect the controller to a phone, tablet or PC with a USB cable connected to the USB-C port.
Note that Stadia will only support mobile gaming on a limited number of devices only on tablets running Chrome OS as well as on Pixel 3 and Pixel 3a (3a, 3a XL, 3, 3XL) phones.
Fortunately, Google says it’s working on compatibility for more devices – the FAQ says the company doesn’t have any news to share about VR support on the platform, but says it can buy games from any iOS 11+ or Android M + device that can run the Stadia app.
Finally, the company said that the account you registered with Stadia doesn’t necessarily have to be the address you used. The service only sends a Stadia payment code to the Google account you use to sign up, but you can use it using a different email address. This makes it easy to get code as a gift for your friends and family if you feel lonely and want to try out the platform’s multiplayer games.
