Google How To

Install Google Stadia on your Android TV, Android Box, Phones and Tablets

Google recently introduced a revolutionary gaming service called Stadia. It is like the Netflix for games. Users across the globe can play games like they are streaming a video. With Google Stadia, the game is never on your system, but instead is installed on a remote server (Google cloud). This way there are no hardware restrictions and you can play game from almost any screen including your smartphones, desktops, laptop browsers, Chrome OS tablets, Android TVs or Boxes via chromecast, and even your favorite (HID compliant) USB supported controller, mouse, and keyboards. We already have the latest Google Stadia APK for several Android phones. Here we will show you how to run Google Stadia on your Android TV, Android Box, and more.

While you can readily play Stadia games on Android phones and tablets, support for Android TV and Android Box is limited. So here is a trick you can use to bypass this and play all Google Stadia games on any Android devices including TVs, Boxes, or any display with Chromecast support; if you have a subscription. Thanks to Reddit user u/titooo7 for bringing this simple trick that will enable you to cast and play Stadia games right on your Android TV and Android Box. This has been tested working on multiple Android TVs including Nvidia Shield, Sony 4k Android TV, Sony Bravia 2019 model, Xiaomi Mi TV 4 series, Philips Ambilight Android TV, and many more. Google Stadia even works on Android Boxes like Mi Box S, Mi Box 3, and more.

Moreover, just recently, Google decided to give free 2 months Stadia Pro subscription to everyone. As for the already subscribed Stadia Pro users, Google won’t charge any fees for the next two months. However, the service is only available in 14 countries. For a complete list of Google Stadia supported countries, Android devices, and more visit our previous post from here. Some of the AAA titles include GRID, Destiny 2: The Collection, and Thumper, and more. More games are always added.
