The Stadia controller makes “SEGA” and is preparing to skip the Google videogame school of thought: the future of the device is Bluetooth
It’s incredible how every single owl from Michael Pachter to Nintendo always affects other console manufacturers, and the similarities with SEGA’s second youth on other platforms come back overwhelmingly with the controller Of Google Stadiaready to use on PC with functions Bluetooth. The white flag for the console of equal whiteness therefore brings with it a glimmer of light among the ashy clouds of the cloud. A few hours after the definitive closing of the doors by the console, the update is available. Not all bad comes to silver, if we turn a blind eye to the cases of Sundar Pichai.
A penny for the last blue tooth under the pillow: the Google Stadia controller uses Bluetooth
Of course, Google has also updated the customer support web page with all the necessary details to connect the Stadia controller to your PCs via Bluetooth. The update, according to the official website, will be available to users until 31 December. Not for this, however, things are exactly rosy. Using the power saving features to connect prevents the transfer of other data with wireless communication, such as audio. On the other hand, the controller allows you to map buttons for Google assistant and image capture features.
Stadians, you can now update your Stadia Controller’s firmware to enable Bluetooth Low Energy connections.

The announcement dates back to just last week, and the console will go offline permanently tonight at midnight Pacific time. Naturally you will not end up with a mere paperweight at home: as it should (frankly) be, the corporation has not failed to make known its will to refund all players who supported the platform. Moral of the story: despite the increasingly inexorable digitization of the medium, it is still too much, too soon to move towards the future of the cloud. A future as remote as thundering are the clouds that compose it.
