The wireless features of the Google Stadia pad will initially be available only on TV with Chromecast Ultra: confirmation in a new post published on Reddit.
Google has announced that the Google Stadia controller will have wireless capabilities limited to the launch of the platform, scheduled for November in 14 countries including Italy.
In fact, this feature will initially be provided only during the use of the content on TV with Chromecast Ultra, while during use on a PC or smartphone, a USB-C cable must be used.
The confirmation comes from the community manager who manages the subreddit of Google Stadia. It has also been clarified here that the official pad will be required to play with Chromecast Ultra. Since the device uses only Bluetooth for configuration and connects via Wi-Fi for gameplay, initially it will not be used without cable.
“You will need a Stadia controller to play through the Chromecast Ultra connected to your TV. As for wireless gameplay, this is limited to Chromecast Ultra. If connected via USB cable, the Stadia controller acts as a standard USB HID and can run on other platforms depending on the game and the configuration “, reads the post published on Reddit.
At the moment it is not yet clear when wireless functionality will be available on other Stadia compatible devices. The new cloud streaming service will debut on November 19th in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland. Below we present the video with everything you need to know about the service.
