Google Stadia controller will not support Bluetooth headsets at launch

Google Stadia controllers won't work with Bluetooth headsets at launch

"Roughly one free game per month give or take", Doronichev wrote.

On the Stadia controller and the audio setup, Doronichev confirmed that only wired audio via the 3.5mm headphone jack will be supported at launch - no Bluetooth via the controller, but you will obviously be able to connect to whichever device you're playing the game on for that.

Commenting further on the question, "What if Google Stadia shuts down?" the executive said, "Nothing in life is certain, but we're committed to making Stadia a success". And with the most popular streaming video and music services, you pay a small monthly fee for access to a large, curated selection of titles rather than buying "permanent" access a la carte. A Pro subscription lets you stream games in 4K/HDR at 60FPS with 5.1 surround surround, and it gives you access to unspecified discounts and a growing library of free games, but it won't give you instant access to a massive library. Starting with Destiny 2 (yay!).

Since its presentation, Google Stadia has aroused great curiosity and enthusiasm in the gamer community and in the videogame industry in general, so much so that immediately someone began to hypothesize that the future of gaming would be streaming and the cloud.

Amazon Prime Day 2019 breaks records yet again
Unfortunately, this bombastic new Prime Day deal only applies if you've never watched anything on Prime Video before. A year ago only two retailers saw a lift over their average Tuesday baseline that was higher than Amazon's .

Google Stadia will launch in November, giving users access to games via the cloud.

In the past, Google has launched products only for them to be left to die or end up killed off after a few years - just look at the plethora of messaging apps the search giant has released and, oh, Google Plus.

Google's upcoming game-streaming service has shown a lot of promise, plus it isn't even priced too badly, but there are still a ton of questions surrounding the platform as we edge closer to the November launch.

Assuring potential users that nothing of this sort will happen, Doronichev said, "There's nothing I can say now to make you believe if you don't". From day one we'll support Takeout, so that you can download your game metadata, including saves if you want to. A Founders Edition, which includes a Chromecast Ultra, a limited edition controller, and three months of Stadia Pro, is also available for preorder for $129. But hey, Stadia Base gives you free access to the state-of-the-art gaming hardware in our datacenter. Doronichev also says that the team is doing everything they can to support cross-play and cross-progression with other platforms, but that this is something ultimately up to each individual game's publisher and developer. "At launch you'll be able to manage your friends list, create parties and use platform-level voice chat", he said.
