Google Stadia Will Be Compatible With Millions of Current Android Phones Starting Feb 20

  • Google Stadia will be accessible by a wide range of smartphones starting February 20, including the Galaxy S20, as well as the ASUS ROG Phone II.
  • Stadia is Google’s subscription-based streaming service that offers cloud-based gaming to the Android population.
  • Currently, Stadia is only compatible with a handful of Google Pixel phones as well as PC web browsers, albeit in only 1080p resolution.
  • Google has previously mentioned that it will bring up to 100 games to Stadia in 2020.

Starting February 20, Google Stadia will be supported by millions of smartphones currently available in the market. Previously limited to Pixel phones, Stadia is Google’s subscription gaming service based on the cloud. There’s even a free tier for those willing to try out the new gaming service.

Here is the full list of the newly supported smartphones:

  • Samsung Galaxy S8
  • Samsung Galaxy S8+
  • Samsung Galaxy S8 Active
  • Samsung Galaxy Note8
  • Samsung Galaxy S9
  • Samsung Galaxy S9+
  • Samsung Galaxy Note9
  • Samsung Galaxy S10

Stadia has been off to a rocky start mostly due to lack of games as well as compatibility with non-Pixel phones. But with that changing now, Google can surely hope that Stadia as a service becomes more popular among the Android population.

Google will also have to keep in mind that Stadia is not without its issues. On PC web browsers, Stadia can only offer gaming in 1080p resolution. However, the addition of 120FPS phones like the galaxy s20, Razer Phone 2 and the ASUS ROG Phone II, should offer impressive gaming performance using Stadia.

Google has announced that it will add up to 100 games on Stadia this year, so there’s a lot to look forward to for Stadia fans. Are you signing up with your compatible device? Let us know in the comments below.
