This table does not provide an exhaustive list of gamepads that may work with Stadia. Other gamepads may also work, depending on their compatibility with Chrome and Android. Also note that not all gamepads will be compatible with non-Pixel Android devices. Contact your device’s manufacturer for information on which gamepads are compatible with your device.

Important:

  • Some of the gamepads listed above may require additional drivers in order to properly function with Stadia on Windows, MacOS, Linux, and ChromeOS.
  • The "Home" button for the Xbox Adaptive Controller is not supported on Android, Linux, or ChromeOS.
  • Because the "Home" button for Xbox Controllers on Windows may open the Windows Game Bar when pressed, it is not supported by Stadia on Windows. Instead, you may press Shift + Tab on your computer keyboard to open the in-game Stadia menu.
  • The DualShock 4 Controller (when connected with USB on Google Chrome) and the Stadia Controller support audio input and output via a headset connected to the 3.5mm jack. For all other peripherals and platforms, headsets must be connected directly to the computer or phone for audio input and output.
  • The Stadia Controller is the only gamepad that supports receiving game and chat audio and providing microphone input via connected headsets. When using other third-party gamepads, you will need to connect your headset directly to your computer or phone.
    • Tip: If you're getting low-quality audio from a headset attached to your Stadia Controller, close any extra browser tabs you have open, then plug your headset directly into your computer instead of your controller.
  • Bluetooth for Xbox One Wireless Controllers is not supported on Linux.
