Soon you won’t need a controller.

What you need to know

  • Google Stadia is a cloud game streaming service.
  • Google keeps on adding new features to the platform.
  • On-screen controls are coming soon.
  • You can purchase a Stadia bundle for $130 through the Google Store.

Google Stadia is a cloud game streaming service that launched in November 2019 to a lot of excitement. While there is still an issue when it comes to having an expansive game catalog, there are a lot of promising titles on the horizon.

However, the technical front of Stadia is even more exciting. Recently, 9to5Google said that Stadia was getting on-screen controls after doing some digging. This would be great for those who want to play a less-intense game without hooking up a controller. Hopefully, Google will announce this feature soon because it seems like it’s already been datamined.

Would you use on-screen controls or do you think they’re too finicky? Let us know.
