Google Assistant on Stadia

With Google Assistant on Stadia, you can start a game with just your voice. You can also talk to the Assistant while playing a game. Stadia-specific commands for Google Assistant are only available for Stadia on Chromecast Ultra, Google TV, and Android TV.

Note: Google Assistant support for Stadia is not available for children with supervised accounts.

The Google Assistant button Assistant button on the Stadia Controller only works on Chromecast Ultra. To use Google Assistant with Google TV, Android TV, or a smart TV, enable Assistant in your device's settings, then press the Assistant button on your TV remote.

Enable Google Assistant on Stadia

  1. On your mobile device, open the Stadia app Stadia icon.
  2. At the top right, tap your avatar and then Google Assistant.
  3. Turn on Enable Assistant button on Stadia Controllers.

Note: If you have an iOS® device, you'll need to download the Google Assistant app to opt-into using Assistant on your device.

Enable personal results

If you enable personal results, Google Assistant can access your personal information, like your home address or calendar appointments, to customize answers to your questions.

  1. On your mobile device, open the Stadia app Stadia icon.
  2. In the top right, tap your avatar and then Settings and then Google Assistant.
  3. Tap More Settings and then tap the slider next to Personal results.

Important: If you enable personal results, anyone who speaks to Google Assistant while using your Stadia account can access your personal information.

You don't need to enable Google Assistant in your Stadia settings menu to use Assistant commands with your device. However, your Stadia account and device must both be linked to the same Google Account. If you link multiple accounts with matching Voice Match IDs to your Assistant device, you might need to disable Voice Match on your other non-Stadia accounts, or unlink them from your device.

  • All controllers playing a local multiplayer session on Stadia will be attached to the account of the person signed into Stadia. 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.
  • If you enable personal results, anyone playing on your account can access your personal information by asking Google Assistant a question.
