On Thursday, Google gave Android users the ability to play Stadia on any modern phone. With that extended support, the Stadia app now has over 1 million installed.
Stadia for Android launched November November, 2019 in the Play Store. Four months later, on March 10, it reached 500,000 downloads. Now, three months later, Google Play reports 1,000,000+ installations.
This milestone comes just two days after Google Mobile Studia brought the gameplay to a huge number of Android phones. Last year’s launch, support was limited to the Pixel 2, 3, 3A, and family of 4 devices. It was later expanded to recent phones from Samsung, Asus and Razor as well as OnePlus.
The company still maintains a list of optimized, supported phones, now has experimental capabilities to force play on any device: Settings> Test >> “Play on this device.” Google has warned that this could affect the performance of the game.
Stadia this week added a virtual touch gamepad that lets users play without a connected controller. Meanwhile, the new resolution choices allow you to set streaming values on a per-device basis, which means desktop users no longer need the mobile app to control every option. At the moment, Stadia users are eligible for a $ 10 discount for their next title purchase, while new customers can get one month of pro service.
