Google Stadia now available on iOS


After being released for over a year, Google Stadia is finally making its way to iOS. You cannot entirely blame Google for the delay in getting the service working on iOS. Apple themselves made it incredibly difficult for Cloud Gaming platforms to release Apps on their App Store.

However, that has changed as many Cloud Gaming platforms have found a way to get their services on Apple's iOS devices thanks to the power of Browser-based streaming. All you need to do is navigate to Google Stadia's website, and you can log in and start playing. Remember, though, that iOS compatibility through mobile browsers is currently in beta. You may run into some performance and compatibility issues here and there.

With the release of the iOS beta, Google Stadia now joins Shadow, Amazon Luna, and NVIDIA GeForce Now as available Cloud Gaming services on iPhone's and iPad's.

The iOS beta supports using your Stadia Controller as well as any other supported Bluetooth controller.

If you want to give Stadia a try, you can sign up for free if you have a Gmail account, and you can play free games such as Destiny 2 or Super Bomberman R Online.

The ability to play Google Stadia on iOS will surely help the platform grow. Already seeing a significant uptick in players thanks to Stadia offering free games, demos, and the ability to play newly released AAA games, Google Stadia is finally gaining its footing in the gaming world.

Cloud Gaming is still in its infancy, and it was a bold move for Google to release a Cloud Gaming platform that required you purchased your games on it, unlike other services like GeForce Now and Shadow, which allow you to play games you already own.

With 2020 coming to a close, I am excited to see how Cloud Gaming will evolve throughout 2021 and onwards!
