stadia.com and stadia.google.com used to just redirect to the Google Store - now it actually has a page. I assume once it launches, if you are signed in with a Google account that has Stadia this is the page that will actually show your Stadia dashboard, etc.
Also, this page is a PWA aka "Installable web app" - so in Chrome you can click the "+" on the far right of the address bar to "install it" - meaning it will show up as an app (at least in Windows and Chromebooks) and have it's own window. (I can see you already know this OP - just saying, for those who don't)
Click to play barely feels like a feature. Like, we already "Click to Play" in our chrome browser with Stadia as is. If people need to sign-up for Pro, what is the point? Just link them to Stadia.com, its the same shit.
I mean... it's free. There's nothing to "get" unless you want to buy the hardware - but that's not a requirement.
Make yourself a google account if you don't already have one, and head on over to https://stadia.com, log in - try it out. You get a whole bunch of games to play with your free trial of Pro, but even if you'd rather not take the trial, you can try out Destiny 2, Superbomberman R and some of the Hitman series completely free.
>There are ongoing discounts for both Stadia Pro subscribers and all players - check out the web or mobile Stadia store for the latest.
It even links to the store, just to show an empty discount page 😂.
Mafia Trilogy was announced officially way back in Sept 2020. Those will come as they have promised it.
Edit - Here it is https://mafiagame.com/news/mafia-trilogy-faq/
It was announced with other platfroms. That was when take two was supporting stadia
New ones though. Probs not
Get the GL.inet routers on amazon, they're like 20-30 bucks and simple to set up and literally designed to get around captive portals. Plus they have built in VPN, tethering, range extender, etc.
I have this one:
If you want to be extremely frustrated, follow the other advice about calling the front desk and getting your MAC address approved.
It all depends on the game.
Some games are locked to 30FPS regardless of whether you're playing in 1080 or 4K mode.
Some games have a toggle that allows you to choose between 60FPS (at a lower resolution) or 30FPS (at a higher resolution).
Finally, some games will run in 60FPS in 1080p mode by default.
In my database (this is *not* an official Stadia resource), I've noted which games run at 60FPS in 1080p mode if they're 30FPS in 4K mode :)
If anyone would like to see more of my pixel counts, here's a link to my database 🙂
I'm still in the process of filling in the gaps, but I try to get big releases done on their launch day 😁
I just did this last night and wanted to share my experience in case anyone else was interested!
Use a VPN and connect to USA. I used TunnelBear (I know it’s not the best. But it’s easy to use and worked for this one thing)on my iPhone.
Login with you existing Ubisoft account.
Join Ubisoft plus using a usa address. I used the Howard Johnson Hotel in Disney Lands address. Pay with your PayPal. I tried using my credit card, and visa debit and neither worked. My PayPal linked to my Canadian visa debit however did work.
Link your Ubisoft plus to your stadia account.
You can now turn off VPN and use Ubisoft plus in Canada on stadia with no issues.
I’ve played far cry and the new Watchdogs with no issues on my CCU!
I tried out the new couch feature in the new olympics game and I think there is some confusion about what it really is.
If you start a game, there is a button that lets you log in another user. If you press that, you get some code. The second player enters that code under stadia.com/couch which causes him to be logged into the already running instance of the game. It doesn't start the game on the browser where the code is entered, it's just meant to let multiple players play couch coop on one device, while each one is logged in to their own accounts and can use their own username, their own customized characters, progress through the game, collect their own achievements, etc.
It has nothing to to with remote play, you can't play a game that you don't own online via couch. Since only one instance of the game is running, it does work with family sharing, though, meaning you can set up tha game for every member of your family group and then play together on one screen, with your own accounts.
Also, in the blog post they wrote, that couch supports four players, but olympic games just supports two player splitscreen, so couch also only works for two players. You can join online games with two local players, though.
That doesn't mean, that the request to add it to existing games is a bad thing, they totally should do that, because it's still a neat feature.
"Starting November 19 at 9 AM PT, everyone on Stadia can play Destiny 2 for free. This play for free version of Destiny 2 begins your legend with a large variety of activities – from cooperative quests to competitive modes, challenging endgame activities, and more. Even if you’re not a Stadia Pro member, you’ll be able to take part in the core Destiny 2 experience."
Looks like it is the main game, no DLC/expansions.
Just made one with this app:
It even allows you to choose the opening app in the shortcut creation.
Create the shortcut from the widget creation screen though or it'll just be a Stadia logo.
Download images to use for logos online :)
Only 1x1 tiles tho
Or they could just do some sort of branded controller that can fit any phone. Here's an example https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Controller-Gamepad-Andriod-Bluetooth/dp/B07NTNB3G5
It would be much more practical
- It an it can add some battery life
- you won't need to carry around a second device
- it's going to be affordable so you can buy a good phone + this instead of buying two different devices
- it's much more easier to use this type of controller if you are an iOS user because you wont need to struggle getting used to an android-ish OS
Or they could make a controller that's made out of two parts that:
- could combine to make one controller
- could be taken apart to make two controllers (Nintendo switch style)
- could be attached on the sides of any phone and make a PSVita kind of "device".
For those asking, I can confirm it's 1080p60.
If you don't know, I'm the guy who pixel counts all the games on Stadia (and tries to get developers to confirm the information)
Sites like www.speedtest.net optimize the test to get you the highest result possible; essentially they're trying to find out what your maximum speed is.
It's not a real world scenario.
Google's test will more accurately measure what your speed to their servers will be.
Google might very well end up winning the Cloud-gaming infrastructure Wars, assuming this white label thing actually finds some success, which is not impossible. I can see Stadia becoming a successful gaming-focused Google Cloud Platform-type thing.
But they most definitely are not winning the actual Platform War themselves, with their own gaming platform (stadia.com).
I got this Razer Kishi Mobile Game Controller / Gamepad for Android USB-C: Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, xCloud, Stadia, GeForce NOW, Luna - Passthrough Charging - Low Latency Phone Controller Grip - Samsung, Pixel https://www.amazon.com/dp/B086X8DHN2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glc_fabc_N2Z31EFZQAJE4H0CSG1E
You need to use the Ubisoft Connect App to search for and add friends. Once you've added them in the app they will show up on your in game friends list. Here is a link to the Android app. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ubisoft.uplay
For anyone wondering yes you can stream from the CCU but you can't initiate the stream from the CCU.
Just start the game on the CCU as you normally would, go to stadia.com click live streaming and start the stream the website already knows you are in-game and fills out the required info etc automatic there is no need to start the game within your browser.
If you don't have a computer then you can do the same in chrome on the phone by using desktop mode.
Ah, I'm seeing how the wording is a bit confusing. To clarify, you can adjust the privacy settings for your achievements through the mobile app. You can view your earned achievements at stadia.com or on a TV using Chromecast Ultra.
Edit for further clarification: While achievements are available both on web and your Chromecast Ultra, the additional stats are only available on web.
In the end it depends how far from the US servers you are located. But in my experience playing in Mexico City the ones that worked well were NordVPN, PIA VPN and Psiphon3 .
Edit. Just did a quick test with StadiaAnywhere and it works pretty good too.
Far Cry: New Dawn currently runs at 30 fps on Stadia, the framerate has nothing to do with the speed (or more importantly the quality) of your internet connection to Stadia servers
unfortunately a lot of the old Ubisoft games run at 30
I don't buy 30fps games on Stadia, but there are a few exceptions such as The Crew 2. The Crew 2 felt fine to me but I did try out Ubisoft+ on Stadia recently and I tried out Far Cry 5 and there was no shot I was going to be able to play that on Stadia. Aiming felt so terrible and laggy that I failed the intro chase scene 3 times or something (and no I don't have bad aim on KB&M, and my internet was fine). Also, the game has a lot of graphical glitches pretty often so I'll just play it on PC if I ever want to play it again. Feel free to use this website to see which games are 60fps or have a 60fps mode: https://airtable.com/shrHXaF85D1upSKSs/tblVXkiYyDsFwmiMa
A budgeting app - https://www.youneedabudget.com/
There's a bit of a learning curve to it (it's based off a zero-based budgeting style) but I have found it extremely effective. I recommend if you sign up for the trial that the first thing you do is go read this page and every single linked article: https://www.youneedabudget.com/the-four-rules/
When its ready, people could distribute and install it with altstore. https://altstore.io. A bit of a setup but not to crazy. Looking forward to your solution as a fellow mobile dev. I couldnt get past the mouse capture issue, when I tried.

Turns out all the Tom Clancy games have a 60fps option (hopefully continues to Rainbow Six), AC and FC are all 30, not sure about others. But here’s the database
The best way to understand is just to try it really
Above is a link to bomberman. Click it and start playing.
I live in Guatemala. Stadia isn't supported in this Country yet, so I use NordVPN to play it. I have to say, it works extremely well. Almost no input lag.
Really hope Google adds support for Guatemala.

Wanna compare my monthly hours played on Stadia with yours on Series S? See who's the most "casual" player of us?
And still, looking at my present library I have thousands of future hours of yet-to-be-enjoyed gaming in my Stadia backlog and in planned replays. Adding interesting new releases cumulatively, the availability of Stadia entertainment is both sufficient, and sustainably so, for me. What kind of "bulk" do you really need? Do you even finish your games at all?
The real deciding factors here are the ratio of old ports vs. new titles, and whether the old(er) games appear interesting to you. The importance of both of these factors will invariably be improving with time.
The One linked don't have power passthrou.
Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Satechi-USB-C-Multi-Port-Ethernet-Adapter/dp/B083XCLQWP/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Satechi+USB-C&qid=1624451776&sr=8-1
I have one and it works great. Have a 32gb SD card as extra storage in it
No worries, I don't think anyone cares about people posting issues they're having, as long as it's not "Stadia is trash, you all are losers" style. =)
Unfortunately I'm guessing this might be hard for us to help diagnose here since it sounds like a wifi related issue, which could be caused by a billion things. Your better experience on your iPad could be completely down to the iPad having a stronger Wifi signal than your phone. Especially if things have been getting worse over time, my suspicion is there might be wifi interference happening that your router's wifi signal is not able to overcome. As a reminder, 5ghz wifi will almost surely give a better experience than 2.4 ghz.
We can try to help you troubleshoot the router if you post the model etc, but a lot of it will come down to the signal strength. A wifi 6 router is ideal if your devices can support it because there is likely to be little interference, but a good wifi 5 router should work fine as well (I use the Nest Wifi which is great for it).
One way to test would be if you have fewer connection issues when you're really close to the router vs further away.
If you have an android phone, I have used this app to see if there are a lot of competing networks on or near the same wifi channel as mine:
Strongly encourage mounts that have the two hinges. Have the above and no matter what seating position you can adjust so the weight of the phone isnt awkwardly distributed while you hold the controller.
Happy gaming my friend!!
Isn't this basically the razer kishi? Except for maybe the part of the controller that extends below the phone.
It's 60fps as you can see here
Not sure about crossplay
Looks like no crossplay
To see streaming specs, I'm using this database :
AFAIK, it's the only one that gives the real maximum resolution for Pro subscribers (with proof), and the Frame Rate in 1080p (if the game doesn't run @60FPS when rendered in 4k).
According to https://airtable.com/shrHXaF85D1upSKSs/tblVXkiYyDsFwmiMa maximum resolution is 2560x1440 with 30 FPS. 60 FPS only seems at 1080p
Here. You can check FPS, resolution or whatever. It's a bit messy, but you can find the game and the FPS quite easily.
Humankind supports Public Party on Stadia so if you want to play multiplayer I'd make a Public Party and wait for someone to Join.
If you don't have Public Party enabled yet you can force it by using this url on Chrome (work on Chrome app on mobile too) https://stadia.com?hl=en .
>In 2021, we’re expanding our efforts to help game developers and publishers take advantage of our platform technology and deliver games directly to their players.
Focusing on Stadia’s future as a platform, and winding down SG&E (blog.google)
What he is saying here is Google Partners can setup thier own cloud services on their own websites with their own branding and pricing models powered by googles platform technology and Google will work with them to setup that up.
People seem to think Stadia will get more support.... it will not as why would any company who setup their own service pay google for that and then let google sell their games on stadia.com taking a cut of those sales too...
They wouldn't they would be thinking no those gamers can come to our site pay us direct and use our service as thats why we have it..
Yes, look at it this way:
Standard Stadia (formerly known as Stadia Base, but I think that term was tossed out):
Stadia had the most stable version of the game at release and the publisher told everyone fixes are coming.
Outward was working ok on release with grass and all but that got removed with the new DLC release and the publisher told me: go to Stadia support we are not going to help you.
That alone makes it different because CD Projekt Red got this in place https://www.cyberpunk.net/en/news/37298/our-commitment
Because CD Projekt themself said that it will release later.
> Cyberpunk 2077 will release April 16th, 2020, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The Google Stadia version will launch the same year — additional details will be made available at a later date.
And you can preorder it on everything but Stadia.
Sure it could change and they finish the port in time but right now everything stated is that it won't release on 16th of April.
That's the idea of VMs, to decouple from the hardware. And containerised apps go one step further and decouple from the original VMs so that the apps can run on different VM environments. See here for more explanation: https://www.docker.com/resources/what-container
Download the Stadium Hunters app from the Play Store. It tracks a lot of information like this. I don't think it does a year end one, but it does do monthly most played and overall most played and launched. You can also rate games and see achievement info. There is a lot more to it.
Edit: Stadium Hunters app download (Play Store)
OR a usb-c hub. That's what I've used with mine. However, there are brands of usb-c hub that simply will not work, the ethernet won't be recognized. It has something to do with the chipset. I had to return one back last year when I was setting it up.
works (damn this was $20 when I got it, chip shortage...):
does not work:
I'd recommend this one which has worked great for me and is marketed for use with Stadia. The only complaint I have is the led light always being on.
A lot of games are 2160p as you can see here, inluding Valhalla, Metro Exodus, ESO, the Division 2...
But I was talking about the stream quality, I can tell the difference, if you can't for some reason don't use Pro
Dragon Quest 11 S on Stadia is not 4K, natively it is 972p60. When I played the game on Stadia I could definitely tell the game was below 1080p. If you're interested in the resolution and framerate of other Stadia games you can download Stadia Enhanced or go to https://airtable.com/shrHXaF85D1upSKSs/tblVXkiYyDsFwmiMa
go to stadia.com, sign in with a google account, hit the play button on Destiny and it will start loading the game full screen via Chrome Browser on Windows/Mac/Linux PC/Laptop/Chromebook/Tablet or the Stadia app on Android Phones (I believe its only Pixels still I could be wrong) or a Chromecast Ultra/Chromecast with Google TV.
You can then play with Keyboard and mouse, plug in a controller via USB from any source (Xbox, PS4, third party) or you can purchase a Stadia controller which connects wirelessly over wifi which you sync to the stadia instance you are currently using via a sync code which is a series of 4 inputs into the controller prompted on the screen. To play on Chromecast you need the Stadia Controller. On PC/Laptop/Chromebook/Mac/Macbook/Android you can plug in any other controller you want via USB.
If you buy a game on Stadia, you pay for it on the Stadia store and its gets added to your library. You click on the play button and once again it loads up full screen and starts playing the game which you then play using your preferred input device.
Also as for rockstar they don't class cloud gaming as the same category as consoles or pc that's why they don't mention stadia
Find where it says avaliable on stadia
Chrome -> Avatar>Profile>See All (under games)
a) use chrome in desktop mode
b) use the stadium hunters app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.endeavour.stadiahunters
Maybe something like this. I have no idea if it works as intended, but seems to have a downscaling option.
Hello, I know you have been answering the questions that have been asked, but could you install the apk of stadia (mobile version) to know if it works and the quality with which it does it?
To install the mobile apk you must download apkmirror (https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/stadia/stadia-2-32-325394235-release/stadia-2-32-325394235-android-apk-download/)
Then install the Send File to tv application on both android tv and mobile (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.yablio.sendfilestotv&hl=es_AR)
Transfer the Stadia apk to the Android TV and install the application, after that you can open Stadia as if it were a mobile phone but you can navigate with the controller and use the PlayStation controller to play.
Thanks for all the answers and for your patience jajajaja
Estoy usando NordVPN, toma en cuenta que estoy hasta la península de Yucatán y el mejor server para mí es de Dallas TX, por distancia, y me funciona perfectamente con ping de 50ms, así que supongo que sí tú estás más al norte que yo te va a funcionar perfectamente igual , también toma en cuenta que tengo fibra óptica simétrica de 200/200, antes de activar el VPN mi Ping es de 3 ms y la conexión de 200/200 cuando activo el VPN se va a 49/50ms el ping (el cual me deja jugar perfectamente) y la conexión se queda sobre 150/150
After failing with two other tablets, I finally got it working with this tablet:
Works best with Stadia app set to 720p and game set to prioritize framerate.
Not heavy at all! Very comfortable.
Modified the Orzly phone mount by removing the moving spring mechanism and using two-sided sticky tape to attach the mount to the tablet.
The difference between a cropped effective 5" screen to an almost fully utilized 8" is like night and day.
Only downside is that the speaker on the Lenovo sucks, but hey, that's what Bluetooth earbuds are for.
I believe google acknowledged that Reader had a loyal following, it just wasn't very many people. I remember seeing a petition to keep it open that only had around 100k signatures at the time. That might seem like a lot, but their popular products have over a billion users each. Even G+ had around 400k active users.
Also, Reader was replaced with other alternatives and anyone can get pretty much the same experience with lots of choices now. In a sense Google doing this one thing for free, that anyone else could've been doing, was keeping users away from other smaller companies that would love to get 100k new accounts.
Google tries lots of different things, shuts down stuff that isn't popular, and puts the resources towards stuff that is popular. I see zero downside to that plan.
I don't like it. I like the approach of "Shadow" (https://shadow.tech/) way more. I just want my PC in the CLOUD. I dont want a new library only on Stadia. I just want to start: Steam, Epic, GOG etc. and use my library.
Imagine what could Stadia have been if a small company like shadow can deliver such a good product with the right concept.

For the sake of your post and asking others to check, you're right, 4K and HDR are no longer showing up for me (after going to look at Stadia.com through an incognito window). I'm in Texas, for sake of regions.
It's discounted if you claimed Superhot. It's free if you purchased it.
In the meantime, do you like time-bending, slow-mo, action-packed, cinematic FPS ninja-like puzzle challenges? Then play SUPERHOT: Mind Control Delete, the long-awaited sequel to the fan favorite hit shooter where time only moves when you do. <em>SUPERHOT: Mind Control Delete</em> hits Stadia today. Purchase it in the Stadia store for a limited-time promotional price – $14.99 USD for Stadia Pro subscribers or $17.49 for everyone else (regular price: $24.99). And if you purchased SUPERHOT from the Stadia store before August 18th, you’re eligible for a free copy of SUPERHOT: Mind Control Delete. Just send your receipt to <strong><em>[email protected]</em></strong>, and they’ll hook you up with an activation key. Please note that players who claimed the original SUPERHOT with a Stadia Pro subscription are not eligible for this offer.
I have it, too. It's a little silly, since everyone can access this deal by just going to stadia.com and signing up, but it's just another way that google is spreading the word. They are ramping up advertising. This is great news.
Actually now that I look at it, it seems that the stadia.com address just redirects to the google store website's Stadia section. So it should not mean anything else than that google store is not in Latvia yet, and should not be related to the Stadia service itself.
So your disagreement is with the policy, not with support.
It's the same for PSN: https://www.playstation.com/en-us/network/legal/cancellation-policy/#subscriptions
and it's certainly the same for most (if not all) subscription services.
You are assuming that I want to run Windows, which I don't. This is an iPad Pro replacement for me. I wanted something with a lightweight OS, super thin and light physically, 4k touchscreen with pen capabilities for notes. Options that fit that category were the pixel Chromebook and this. The Galaxy Chromebook is cheaper and I find it much better looking.
Even if I did want a standard laptop, finding something lightweight with a 4k screen is still more than the cost of this.
Seems like he’s talking about this. Don’t know anything about it but just found it on google.
Edit: comparison with stadia link https://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/google-stadia-vs-shadow/
First off, I'm not a console gamer, so no Xbox or Playstation for me. Having Steam shut down is something I consider, and I generally consider the off-set of low prices during Steam sales to be a fair off-set for only getting an indefinite rental period for my money. $10 for the Borderlands Handsome Collection? More than a fair price for something that might evaporate. Buying it at a much higher price, with no idea how long it'll last? Nope, not gonna happen.
Games that I know I want to be in my collection for as long as possible? I try to buy those on GOG.com or through other services that offer DRM-free games. I do my best to make my own backups, and make sure my absolute favorite games will survive services getting shut down.
I'm just speculating, but this might have to do that there is no full support for the Vulcan API for the Cryengine yet. If I interpret the roadmap correctly, support for Vulcan is due in spring 2020
Google's own Pixel phones are great options. The 4A and soon to launch 5A are their "budget" offerings. Otherwise you can go flagship with the Pixel 5 or October's Pixel 6.
Stadia caps at 60 fps so no need to specifically target 120 hz screens. You will ideally want one that is at least 1080p though.
Some solutions that don't involve a new phone:
For your current phone, you could purchase a USB-C to Ethernet dongle (or hub if you want to charge simultaneously) and see if that helps, if you think your Wi-Fi might be the issue.
If input lag is your "laggy" issue (you press a button then it takes a sec before character reacts) it could just be your bluetooth controller. Bluetooth isn't great for gaming, you can wire the controller in via USB, or purchase an official Stadia controller which uses Wi-Fi instead of Bluetooth. Or get a Razer Kishi!
The 4K monitor I just bought has HDR with multiple HDMI ports and a USB C port. It came with all the cords as well. The USB C port/included cord literally provides enough power to power the CCWGTV while it’s plugged into the HDMI port for video and all. It has a beautiful picture and super simple set up to play and put away. Basically just a monitor, power adapter and the previously mentioned CCWGTV set up.
The monitor I bought can be found here to give you a general idea.

Yes but there is no physical port. You can get the official Ethernet/Power adapter, or a generic USB-C Ethernet hub would be more flexible.
sadly, 180ms (or anything higher than 50ms) means guaranteed trouble. could i ask you which VPN Service you're using? there are "special" VPN Provider for Gaming. ExpressVPN and NordVPN do have a pretty good performance i( heard).
There's also a coupon for 1ft c-to-c cables.
Check for interference on your Wifi channel.
> I am using a MacBook Pro, so Ethernet is out of the question
Since you are using Wifi the easiest way to check if it is a Wifi issue is to plug an Ethernet cable into your Laptop. If it fixes the issue then it was a Wifi issue. If it persists then it is not Wifi.
Are you sure the 240mm radiator on the NZXT Kraken would be enough? I mean, the CCU uses a staggering 4watt when in use, so it might be saver to go with a 360mm radiator.
If using a higher wattage power brick doesn't help, bad hub?
For me, this one works with the original power brick for CCwGTV + ethernet + webcam.

this thing is a God send for me
I set it to use the same SSID as home so all my devices auto connect without having to repair controller or ccu
Once I find the right tablet, I'm gojng to modify it from a phone holder to a tablet holder, possibly by frankensteining it together with this tablet mount
If you're looking just for Stadia, I highly recommend the Fire HD 10. Unfortunately the sale just ended, but it goes on sale for $100 every couple months. You do need to sideload the Play Store but that takes all of about 5 minutes to do. Once you do, Stadia runs great with a controller paired wirelessly.
I bought it from Amazon Germany, since it's the easiest way to deliver to Denmark. They still have it in stock at the point of this writing: https://www.amazon.de/dp/B084W8P5FP/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_9qm4EbE2TH40N
I know, it's going to be so strange streaming a 200mb game but I don't see any other solution? I want them on there so I can play them on the TV through the chromecast.
I did wonder if google could do their own HTML5 indie game specific portal, kind of like a heavily curated itch.io but I think that is too much of a fantasy.
I thought unity already supported stadia, my bad. Google should have sorted all that before any kind of launch if you ask me.
You could use IFTT to setup an alert for that.
Yeah it's even pixel counted at 2160p
was gonna ask him on what he ran it but then I thought better, you never know
Until they add this, you can always use my database! :)
I haven't pixel counted everything yet (it's expensive buying the entire Stadia catalogue), but I'm getting there!
Completely anecdotal, but it seems like they tune Stadia to make sure it runs well with the highest resolution and FPS that Stadia offers for each specific game. That means the maximum settings for some games are less than 4k and only 30fps, even though versions of the same game on other platforms might be 4k and 60fps.
Via some of the Chrome extensions you can try to force Stadia to send you a 4k stream, but the game itself could still be 1080p or 2k. It just depends on the game. This website has a good breakdown of the streaming specs for each game.
if you were a networking tech, interestingly how the mods deleted your comment too. youd know that website is an api fetch for google servers. its not fast.com ran by netflix, or speedtest. but you prob right, you are a networking tech afterall lol
Latency is a fact but perception isn't and my perception is it's fast enough that I can't notice. And even if I did notice, there is a certain amount of lag I'd be willing to put up with as long as I don't have to pay to upgrade my PC. Luckily, I'm getting the best of both worlds with no noticeable lag and not having to pay up.
As for the discrepancy based mainly on your internet connection, I guess, sure. The experience will be variable for everyone depending on their connection. But I have below-average internet speeds for the US according to this website: https://www.speedtest.net/global-index (Avg for the US is 130 down and Google says I have 98 to Stadia) and I'm still having a great time. Granted I did have to buy a ethernet to USB adapter since I play in the basement (and Stadia did NOT work well down here before I bought it) but that only cost $15 and if I play in the same room as my Wifi router, it's perfect.
I also thought the controller has Wifi so it DOESN'T have to go THROUGH the chromecast, :P
