Google Stadia today takes one more step on Apple platforms: the game streaming service exits the beta phase and can now be used stably on iPhone and iPad. This version is broadcast on all servers and will allow us to choose optimized resolutions for iOS and iPadOS.
Stadia is making its way into the iPhone, even though it’s outside the App Store
The idea of Stadia, since its creation, is to offer its catalog of games without needing to install them: the game video signal is broadcast live on the screen of our device, of good quality and requiring only a stable connection. Google is responsible for their execution from its dedicated servers.
App Store rules make Stadia must be opened from a web page
The service isn’t going through a very good time anyway: a few months ago they decided to shut down their own video game studio and the feeling in the gaming world is that it doesn’t end up emerging. Controversy on the regulation of the App Store apart, It remains to be seen if the future of this platform continues as Google envisions it.
You can play using Stadia for free (video games are paid for separately), although in order to be able to do so at 4K resolutions and the highest graphics quality, you have to pay a fee of 9.99 dollars per month for the Pro plan.
