Start a game with Google Assistant

On Chromecast Ultra, to start a game on Stadia with Google Assistant, use the Assistant button Assistant button on your Stadia Controller. On Google TV or Android TV, use the Assistant button Assistant button on the TV remote that came with your device, if it has one.

  • Press the Assistant button Assistant button and say, "Play <game name>."

    • If you link multiple accounts with matching Voice Match IDs to your Assistant device (because all the accounts belong to you), you may need to disable Voice Match on your other non-Stadia accounts, or unlink them from your device.

This means that when any player talks to Google Assistant, their questions and commands are saved to your account. You can delete what they said at myactivity.google.com.
