Google will release a do-it-yourself tool next week to give Stadia controllers Bluetooth support. The streaming service will go offline from January 18, but with the Bluetooth functionality, the console can be used for other purposes.
Yet the bluetooth function is still advertised Google promises Next week explain more about how users can enable this feature. Basically, after the update, customers got a free ‘universal’ console since Google Refund all software and hardware purchases. There are no refund arrangements for an ongoing Google Stadia Pro-only subscription.
Currently, the Google Stadia controller is no longer usable wirelessly after the game service has been discontinued, as the Bluetooth chip is disabled by default. This is why the console can only be used over WiFi with Google service. With the Bluetooth update, on the other hand, the console can also be connected wirelessly to computers and smartphones, for example. Currently, this is already possible via cable.
In September 2022, it was announced that Google would be pulling the plug on Stadia. From that moment on, customers can no longer purchase new games via the platform, but can still stream games through Google’s servers. Starting January 18th, that will no longer be possible and the entire Stadia service will stop.
Until then, customers can try one last new game. Worm Game is a Snake-like game that was used as an internal test game even before the service was released in 2019. Google wrote: “The game won’t win Game of the Year, but the Stadia team spent a tremendous amount of time on this game and we wanted to share it with you. Thanks for playing, and thanks for all the Thing.”
