While Google TVs will all have official support, a handful of Android TVs will still have to wait.
Google will very soon expand the list of televisions with which Stadia, its cloud gaming service, is compatible. From June 23, Google Stadia will be available on Chromecast with Google TV and Android TV. The new version of Chromecast was released over eight months ago and Google had warned its users that it would not support Stadia at launch. For the latter, not all Android TVs will support Stadia from this date. The official list of compatible TVs is as follows:
- Chromecast with Google TV
- Hisense Android Smart TVs (U7G, U8G, U9G)
- Nvidia Shield TV
- Nvidia Shield TV Pro
- Onn FHD Streaming Stick and UHD Streaming Device
- Philips 8215, 8505, and OLED 935 / 805 Series Android TVs
- Xiaomi MIBOX3 and MIBOX4
If your Android TV is not on this list, you can still install Stadia through the Google Play Store and agree to be part of experimental support. You just need to tick the corresponding box. However, it’s worth remembering that Stadia might not perform optimally as the feature is still under development. To play Stadia on an Android TV, you will need a compatible Bluetooth controller or the Stadia Controller, also available in the Stadia Premiere Edition bundle.
The pack Stadia Premiere Edition is also offered with the purchase of certain smartphones of the brand OnePlus and this until September 30th. For Stadia Pro subscribers, the games for the month of June were recently unveiled. In total, four games are offered, including a title that is entering the platform.
