Stadia arrived on Android TV on June 23, and since then more than 50,000 people have downloaded the app from the Google Play Store. Google announced in early June that the first version of Stadia, its game streaming service, will arrive on Chromecast with Google TV along with a few other devices such as Nvidia Shield TV, Xiaomi Mi Box models and others. The app would have had a soft launch on June 21 and, at the time, only allowed users to pre-load it.
Stadia is Google’s game streaming subscription service with a growing library of games that allows users to play on a variety of devices, as long as they have a stable internet connection. This eliminates the need for powerful hardware to run the games as local devices only have to stream them and the processing is handled by remote data centers. The Stadia app arrived on Android TV on June 23 with a gradual launch on June 21 and in less than two weeks the app recorded over 50,000 downloads. This number can range from 50,000 to 99,999. The development was first spotted by Reddit user TruthOvercomesLies.
With Stadia direct to an Android TV, all you need is a compatible controller, and you can play over 180 games without needing to plug in an external device or console. To do this, go to the Google Play Store on your Android TV, download the Stadia app for Android TV, open it, and select Continue on the activation screen.
This first version of Stadia was released for Chromecast with Google TV, Hisense Android Smart TV (U7G, U8G, U9G), Nvidia Shield TV, Nvidia Shield TV Pro, Onn FHD Streaming Stick and UHD Streaming Device, Philips 8215, 8505 and OLED Android TVs from the 935/805 series, as well as the Xiaomi Mi Box 3 and Mi Box 4 models. Other devices may opt for experimental support to try out Stadia and almost any Android TV device can download the app to try and play .
