Google announced today that it is finally bringing the Stadia streaming game service to its Chromecast with Google TV on June 23. It is also bringing Stadia to some Android TV OS devices on that date as well.
“The first version of Stadia on Chromecast with Google TV is launching on June 23,” the Stadia team revealed. “In addition, we’re excited to announce something entirely new – you’ll also be able to play Stadia on compatible Android TV OS devices on June 23.”
On that date, Stadia will be officially supported on Chromecast with Google TV, plus 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, and the Xiaomi MIBOX3 and MIBOX4. And if you have an unsupported Android TV device, you can opt into experimental support to play Stadia, Google notes.
To get started, you just need to install the Stadia app on your Chromecast with Google TV or supported Android TV device starting on June 23. The service will work with the official Stadia Controller, which I recommend, or any other compatible game controller with Bluetooth support.
