Apple may have banned game streaming from the App Store, but Stadia still managed to make its way to the iPhone and iPad through the browser. Gamers with iOS 1
While a native Stadia app is preferable to a browser-based solution, Google doesn’t have much control over this. Apple doesn’t allow game streaming services in the app store, so services like Stadia, Game Pass, Luna, and GeForce NOW have to work through the Safari and Chrome browsers instead.
Fortunately, Stadia works well through a mobile browser. There are some strange Apple UI artifacts in full screen mode (the status bar likes to hang around), but that’s practically the only problem with Stadia on iOS. Wireless controllers work as they should, and the touch controls are a home run.
For the best experience with Stadia on iOS, Google recommends adding the Stadia PWA to the home screen of your device. The PWA works like a real app and doesn’t have the annoying user interface elements of your mobile browser. To add the Stadia PWA to your home screen, go to the Stadia website in Safari (not Chrome), hit the Share button and select Add to Home Screen.
If Stadia isn’t working on your iPhone or iPad, try updating to the latest version of iOS (14.3). You can also whitelist the Stadia website if you use apps that block ads. Still can’t work on Stadia on iOS? Check out the Stadia Help blog for comprehensive help.
