Given the recent issue with Microsoft pulling out of the ebook store business, there might have been some questions about subscribers ownership of games bought on Stadia.

To enjoy the streaming service Google recommends an internet speed of at least 10 mbps for a 720p experience on Stadia, while faster connections will enable you to enjoy 4K resolutions.

Google has reassured gamers that any titles purchased on its forthcoming streamed gaming platform Stadia will not be lost if a publisher decides to leave.


After they receive the code, it can be used on a "different email account".

"In the future, it is possible that some games may no longer be available for new purchases, but existing players will still be able to play the game", reads an explanation by Google.

The updated FAQ page also clarifies that one can gift Stadia accounts to their loved ones, because the redemption codes, once purchased, can be redeemed with any Google account, not just the one purchasing it. However, you can also connect the controller to a phone, a tablet or a PC via a USB cable plugged into its USB-C port.


On the basis of the latest information shared by Big G, when Google Stadia is launched, those who want to play through their smartphone can do so exclusively from Pixel 3 and 3a devices (in this case, Google Pixel 3a, 3a XL, 3 and 3 XL ).

The new FAQ said that playing Stadia games via USB won't require the dedicated controller; any USB HID controller should work. Users, however, will be able to purchase and manage content from any device running iOS 11 (or higher) or Android M (or higher). Speaking of the Stadia controller, the FAQ says it makes use of BLE for setup, nevertheless it connects via WiFi for gameplay. Though the company gave no definite answer, its response did open up the possibility of support arriving in the future. Stadia will support four-player couch-co-op sessions for starters, with four Stadia controllers working in tandem.

At this time, we have no news to share regarding VR support on Stadia.
