Little by little, Stadia becomes more accessible. To recall, when Google launched its cloud gaming service in 2019, it was only available on smartphones Pixel. But later, Google has extended the support to a list of smartphones manufactured by third parties. And now, even if your device is not on this official list, it is still possible to date, but it is possible that everything does not work properly.
And now, it is also possible to play on a connection to 4G or 5G. In fact, until today, it had to be connected to Wifi to play on a smartphone. But Google just announced the support of networks 4G and 5G via a new test.
A test that will delight many players
To enable this new functionality, it is necessary to go into the settings of Stadia, and then press Tests to access to all experimental features of the platform, including the opportunity to play on a 4G network. This change should allow players to play in more places, since it will now be possible to access the platform of cloud gaming in a park, transports, etc., from the time it has a good connection. In addition, if you do not have a controller available, Google already offers touch screen controls that allow you to play. But as this is still a test, it is possible that support for mobile networks does not always work correctly. This new feature is part of a series of new features (including new games) for Stadia that Google just announced.
