    Anonymous, 30 Sep 2022now I want to use stadia controllers for other thingsUnfortunately Stadia controllers use Wifi to connect to Stadia and doesnt work with anything but Stadia even wired. I got one hoping it would be multipurpose but it didn’t even work for Rocket League. Returned and got a PS5 Controller instead

        CptPower, 30 Sep 2022This going to be fun refund 111 millions of people running ... moreLOL. What are you on? Stadia probably sold about 2 million units. 111 million is the Switch sales number as of June 30, 2022. If Stadia had sold 111 million units, it would have been one of the most successful consoles in history.

                        This is why I will never buy into cloud gaming or cloud based media, you don’t really own anything. I will only buy physical media as long as it’s still being made. Stadia was dead on arrival much like Playstation Now.

                          Alishah, 30 Sep 2022Google+, Buzz, GOOG-411, Hangouts, Moderator, Allo, Picasa,... moreAt least they're trying those publicly, you know, they're already that big that they not need inventions. Tbh we're paying their free stuff with our data so it's not exactly free for us but new things are always welcome. Especially publicly done. If they fail they fail... Richest person on the world almost filled for bankruptcy... but the new things pushed him back to the top. I'm sorry for Picasa but that's pretty much it. ARA was more rummor than test... i wish to see it live.. some AR projects didn't work as well as needed so they're dismissed... But yeah it's a shame wen it's not what we're hoped for after all... so you're right. My point is that it isn't just white and black... Stadia and others are ahead of it's time, internet simply isn't at that level... otherwise it's kinda worth it... for 120-200$ a year you can run any game you want 😉 no need for hardware changes... i spend 5k every few years, but i earn money from it not just game. Which comes to my mind, why not to offer Cloud based Pro apps. Imagine paying monthly for extremely fast rendering speeds... no imput lags, no fast connection required and no hardware on the market to compete with that anyway...

                            Google+, Buzz, GOOG-411, Hangouts, Moderator, Allo, Picasa, Sidewiki, Urchin, Wave, ARA, Duo, Stadia, etc etc etc. The history keeps repeating...

                              imparanoic, 30 Sep 2022It will go down in histo as a failed console such as Apple ... morethe wii u a failed console? LMAO

                              failed at marketing sure. the product itself is amazing

                                AnonD-1066415, 30 Sep 2022Lol, all their profit comes from Android. So, they will not... moreCloud Gaming was already less popular even before STEAM DECK came out. There are other portable gaming handsets out there like GPD, onexplayer or the aya neo brand which is like a Nintendo Switch + Qwerty keyboard. That is gaining more popularity than cloud gaming.

                                Now that we have a steam deck. Plus new mobile windows gaming console from GPD, Aya Neo, Onexplayer, AOKZOE, and others utilizing the power of AMD Ryzen 5000 and 6000 series. Cloud Gaming might already be dead!

                                  This going to be fun refund 111 millions of people running and using stadia would like to see how this ends.
                                  Everybody grab the popcorn and a big bottle of coke show is going to be held in January 2023.

                                    Anonymous, 29 Sep 2022Just don't shut down android. I will die. No iOS for me.Man no worries 90% of the world uses a lot more user friendly android compared to prison OS IOS which refuse to work with anything not bearing worm bitten apple logo on it . IOS is maybe 7% of people,
                                    So is more possible that IOS loose over android.

                                      Thats it.

                                        Ahh Google, and you wonder why nobody takes you seriously whenever you try to tell the rest of the industry what to do...*cough* RCS *cough* 🤔
