Google Stadia controllers won’t be Bluetooth compatible

Google Stadia controllers won’t be Bluetooth compatible

While the information in regards to whether Stadia Base includes free games has actually already been answered, the other questions there did prompt Doronichev to drop some other interesting tidbits.

"No free games on Stadia Base. We'll start with Destiny 2" In this sense, it seems that Stadia Pro will not offer so much - in terms of quantity - as it does in the aforementioned Plus or Gold, although depending on the quality of the titles provided this may be a matter that is quickly compensated.

To be clear, Stadia Pro is not "Netflix for Games" like some people have mentioned. To begin with, if you want to play on your TV, that will only be possible with a Chromecast Ultra and official Stadia controller together. Doronichev clarifies that Stadia is not "Netflix for Games". Because the hardware is being upgraded constantly, the "system" is also constantly being improved - so purchasing a Stadia subscription slowly becomes better and better as the hardware in the server rooms is upgraded.

A Stadio Pro subscription runs $9.99 per month. "A closer comparison would be like Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus". There will however be a workaround for the players using a Pixel phone or Chrome to play Stadia games, they will be able to pair their Bluetooth headphones with their PC or Pixel smartphone to listen to the game audio in privacy.

Please do note that by saying "Pixel phone" Andrey is referring to the Pixel 3, which is the only phone that Stadia will be compatible with at launch, though this will likely change and expand to other Android phones in the weeks following the initial launch.

"Eventually all of our games will be safely in the cloud too and we'll feel great about it", he said, adding that the company has been investing massively in "tech, infrastructure and partnerships" over the years. "We also have a healthy pipeline of social features going forward".

The Stadia controller will not spuport Bluetooth audio. Of course we'll have something similar to other platforms.

As long as a controller is HID compliant, Stadia will support it.

However, Google finally answered this question in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything).
