Google Stadia entered the market with a lot of potentials. Google’s newest gaming platform has been around since last year. It’s not exactly perfect right now but we know the tech giant has been working on improvements and fixes. Less than two weeks ago, we reported that Stadia 2.19 APK hinted at non-certified phone support and touch controls. Stadia Pro also added five new games this June. Stadia wireless controller support also recently rolled out for PC with more free titles.
We know Stadia can be further improved and we’re looking forward to that 4K TV support and Google Assistant integration. As integration with more phones is being confirmed or underway, Stadia users can take advantage of new games available.

These are all OnePlus phones but many other models are also supported. Check if the device can install the Stadia app and most likely, it’s supported. (Search for the app and Play Store.
