Unlock Your Stadia Controller for Bluetooth Use
- Jan 18, 2023
Google has released an online tool to enable Bluetooth support on the Stadia controller, giving life to this cloud-streaming gamepad so that it can be used on PC, iOS, and Android devices. Stadia will shut its doors for good on Wednesday at 11:59 PM PT, so owners need to move fast to unlock their controllers.
To use the tool, owners of the Stadia controller will first need to connect the controller to their computer using a USB-C cable and make sure it’s charged to at least 10 percent. After that, they can open the tool in Chrome and follow the instructions. The process is quick and straightforward and should only take a few minutes. Once the controller has been unlocked, owners can use it to play their favorite games on any compatible device.
The tool also allows users to customize the controller’s button layout, allowing them to create their own unique gaming experience. They can also use the tool to change the controller’s color and assign control profiles to different games. All of these features can be accessed through a simple and intuitive user interface.
The Stadia controller was created to be used with the Stadia platform, but with the new online tool, it can now be used on any other compatible device. This will help to extend the life of the controller and ensure that it isn’t just a paperweight. So if you own a Stadia controller, make sure to take advantage of the tool before the platform shuts its doors permanently.
