Following the official announcement by Google, its cloud gaming service has landed on Apple platforms. It does not do it as an application, but as a webapp that we can access through a browser. Thus, to enjoy games like Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla or Destiny 2 we just have to open Safari.
A great catalog already available in our pocket
According to Google’s announcement, if we have iOS / iPadOS 14.3 we can go to stadia.google.com and start playing. On the website we will find a PWA (Progressive Web Application) that mimics the experience of a native app directly in the browser. Mention that in versions prior to iOS 14.3 the stability of the platform is not as desired, so it is recommended to update to the latest version.
Once we are on the website We can use any compatible bluetooth controller, the controls on the same screen or the Stadia controller that Google markets. According to some first tests, the user experience is really good and it is hardly affected by the fact that it is not a dedicated app.
With the arrival of this platform to iOS and iPadOS the door opens to a good number of interesting titles like Cyberpunk 2077, Assassins Creed Valhalla, Destiny 2, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Outcasters, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or Sniper Elite 4, to name a few examples.
Apple TV app coming to Chromecasts with Google TV in early 2021
It is clear that the arrival of this catalog to the iPhone and iPad is good news. If we add to that the progressive deployment of 5G and its support in the iPhone 12, the truth is that we have a winning combination.
