There simply aren’t that many devices that you can get Stadia on, and fewer countries than that where you can actually access the service. OnePlus adding its new phones to the mix is good news, but means Stadia is still lagging behind something like Apple Arcade in our eyes – an Apple exclusive perhaps, but every modern Apple device can run it.
On the bright side, we reviewed the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro and found them to be absolutely excellent devices. If you pick one up and you live in a supported country, at least you’ll be able to wile away some quarantine time with Stadia.
The full list of Google Stadia compatible phones is:
- Pixel 2, 2XL, 3, 3XL, 3a, 3a XL, 4, 4XL
- Samsung S8, S8+, S8 Active, Note 8
