Google’s Pixel 2 is now one of the new devices which is available with Google Stadia support. At the point of the announcement, the support was limited to the Pixel  3 and 3a family of devices, now the firm has updated its listing to include support for the second and fourth-gen Pixels (though the latter was already expected simply by way of common sense.) Fan-favourite devices like the Samsung Galaxy S10 and OnePlus 7 devices are yet to support Stadia, so we expect Google would want to fix that lest it risk irrelevance.

Stadia is expected to launch later this year and will be competing with Apple Arcade and Microsoft’s xCloud for mindshare. It’s unclear whether Google will be able to release decent product and push the envelope, especially when one considers the nature of the hardware products it has pushed out recently.

“Stadia is a new video game platform, delivering instant access to your favourite games on any type of screen—whether it’s a TV, laptop, desktop, tablet or mobile phone. Our goal is to make those games available in resolutions up to 4K and 60 frames per second with HDR and surround sound,” Google says. Let’s see how those lofty goals hold up upon launch.
