After the announcement of the launch date of Stadia it turned out that Made by Google Controller initially only works wirelessly with Chromecast Ultra and all other devices need a cable. Google has reaffirmed this point today and promised that "soon after launch" more "wireless play" options will be available.
A post posted on the official Stadia subreddit this afternoon confirmed that the controller signed a wireless connection to the data center – for what is being touted. This is only available on your TV through Chromecast. This initially hinders cross-screen play or allows you to quickly switch and start playing games on all your devices.
To be able to play on your PC, laptop, tablet or phone when starting up, the Stadia controller must be connected via USB connection.
However, the Stadia team is working to "add wireless options for these endpoints soon after launch". The timeframe is of course not accurate and no immediate devices have been set. Google notes how it will "continue to work" diligently to add new features to Stadia on a regular basis. "
According to a Google community manager, Stadia's inherent service character means the platform continues to evolve over time. Other features that have been confirmed after startup include USB-C and Bluetooth audio support for the controller.
We will regularly communicate with players to add more features and benefits.
Stadia will be launched shortly one month on November 1
