Google Stadia is finally coming to Chromecast alongside Google TV. The new update will be available on June 23, bringing Google’s cloud streaming service to more TVs.
Chromecast, along with Google TV, launched in September, allowing users to easily stream entertainment apps at up to 4K HDR quality. Oddly enough, Google Stadia support is absent in Chromecast updated at launch, confusing game platform fans. After a long delay, the service will finally be compatible with Google’s own devices.
Along with that update, Stadia will also work with compatible Android TV operating system devices on June 23. Below is a list of new devices that will support Stadia starting from that date.
- Chromecast with Google TV
- Hisense Android Smart TV (U7G, U8G, U9G)
- Nvidia Shield TV
- Nvidia Shield TV Pro
- Onn FHD Streaming Stick and UHD Streaming Device
- Philips 8215, 8505 and 935/805 . OLED series Android TVs
- Xiaomi MIBOX3 and MIBOX4
Google says Android TV owners with a device other than the one listed will still be able to play Stadia through “experimental support”. Players can opt in to a trial of an incomplete version of Android TV support, which will vary in quality across devices.
All Stadia subscribers will have to do is download the Stadia app from the Google Play Store. Launching Stadia from the My Apps section of the TV opens the opt-in screen. Google urges users to share their feedback when the service launches to help with testing.
Google Stadia has expanded in recent months, between adding Resident Evil Village to the service and add more Ubisoft games to its library.
