With less than a week to go until Google’s official launch (November 19), Google details which third-party gamepads support the cloud game service in today’s updated support document. Of course, Google recommends that players get the best gaming experience with the Stadia handle, and if you want to use the service on TV, the Stadia handle is the only option. And if you want to use Chrome on a PC or on a Pixel device, there are more options.
According to a list of third-party controls shared by Google, Google’s Stadia is compatible with keyboard sms, Sony’s DualShock 4 handle, Xbox One handle, Xbox One Elite handle, Xbox Adaptive handle, Xbox 360 handle and Switch Pro handle.
Google says it is not the only device to use Stadia. In the notes to the table, the company says this is not an exhaustive list, and that other controllers can be used with Stadia if they are assumed to be compatible with Chrome and Android.
Anyway, if you have one of these handles, you can use it to play games through Stadia. In addition to the Stadia controller, the Xbox One Elite controller and the Xbox 360 gamepad, with the exception of the Xbox One Elite controller and the Xbox 360 gamepad, you can play games with Chrome and Android as long as USB and Bluetooth connectivity are supported.
It’s also worth noting that Stadia doesn’t support keyboard, mouse or Switch Pro handles on Android, so you’ll need other handles on the table when you play games on your Pixel device. And if you want to play Stadia on TV, only the Stadia handle is currently supported.
