Google Stadia to support wireless connection
When the Google Stadia controller was first released, the company boosted its capacity to exchange rapidly between playing on a TV to a smartphone or a console, without having to link the controller to the device separately. This was made possible as Google Stadia would be directly connected with its servers via Wi-Fi.
The newest announcement from Google said that wireless support for various devices would be implemented sometime in 2020. This is not the only feature the company announced for the future. Other features that are not yet available for the Google Stadia controller is Google Assistant. This particular option is a great introduction, and similar to the wireless connection feature, Google Assistant will first be made available for Chromecast.
Currently, Google Stadia supports other controllers, such as Microsoft’s Xbox, Sony’s PlayStation, and the Nintendo Switch. The great thing about these controllers is the fact that it can be linked with Pixel devices via Bluetooth.
