Official Android TV support is on the way
Google is expanding the availability of its Stadia game streaming service to more TVs and streaming devices later this month. The first version of Stadia on Chromecast with Google TV is launching on June 23, more than eight months after the device launched without official Stadia support.
Along with Chromecast with Google TV support, Stadia will also be available on several Android TV devices on June 23. Not every Android TV device is supported, but Nvidia’s Shield TV device made the list. Here is the official support list:
- 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 935/805 Series Android TVs
- Xiaomi MIBOX3 and MIBOX4
If you don’t see your Android TV device listed, you may still be able to play Stadia. You can opt out of experimental support for running Stadia by simply installing the Stadia app from the Play Store and continuing to the opt-in screen. Android TV devices will need a compatible Bluetooth controller or Google’s own Stadia controller to run Stadia.
