Important: 

  • Some of the controllers 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.

  • The “Home” button for Xbox controllers on Windows may open the Windows Game bar when pressed, and thus is not supported by Stadia on Windows.

  • Bluetooth for Xbox One Wireless Controllers is not supported on Linux.

 

*The table above does not provide an exhaustive list of controllers that may be used with Stadia - other controllers may also work with Stadia, depending on their compatibility with Chrome and Android.
