Stadia will be missing a lot of features when it launches

Google Stadia Mint Controller Logo

THE STAGE IS SET for Google's Stadia game streaming service to launch on 19 November, but it looks set to debut without a lot of its touted features. Stadia director of product Andrey Doronichev, and publisher relations lead Beri Lee hosted a Reddit AMA where they answered so many questions and confirmed a host of missing features.

State Share - The feature to share save states won't be available until next year.

Doronichev said achievements won't be available at launch, not in the way you'd expect them anyway. And Stream Connect, a Stadia feature that lets you stream one player's game directly into another's, will also not work at launch. In other words, you'll be unlocking achievements as you play, but won't get a notification, or be able to track how many you have unlocked in a dedicated page.

Ability to use existing Chromecast Ultras for Stadia: Existing Chromecast Ultra owners will have to wait for Google to send out firmware updates before they can play games on multiple TVs in their home or on their friend's TV. "We will be updating the existing CC Ultra's over the air soon after launch", Doronichev says.

"On 11/19 we'll be only streaming 4K / HDR / 5.1 to Chromecast Ultra". "But in the spirit of gradual rollout, we'll be adding support for 4K/HDR/5.1 on PCs in 2020". Family sharing is another important feature, however, it won't be available on launch day, and it is expected to be part of Stadia next year. We already knew that only Pixel phones would be the only mobile devices supported at launch. In the meantime, if you want to play a game with your partner or child, you'll have to buy another copy. "Android and iOS and whatnot". Some notable titles include Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Destiny 2, Red Dead Redemption 2, and all three Tomb Raider games. "Hope to learn a bunch, make it great and start expanding to more devices next year". The latter package comes with Google's Stadia controller and a Chromecast Ultra - the necessary hardware for playing Google Stadia on a television.

As can be seen from the official table published by the company, Google Stadia will support a variety of peripherals apart from the official Stadia Controller. These options embody Stadia's achievement system, a number of multiplayer connectivity choices equivalent to Crowd Play, and even Day 1 entry to the controller in some instances. Everyone who pre-ordered Stadia will get their codes to sign onto the service starting November 19 and will be able to play on their phones or Chrome desktop browser with a keyboard and mouse. The Claw will be manufactured by Made for Google partner PowerSupport, and it will be sold exclusively through the Google Store in the coming weeks.
