Must be connected via USB.
Google developed the controller for Stadia. The controller includes two thumbsticks, a directional pad, four main face buttons, two sets of shoulder buttons, and five additional controller face buttons.
The controller has the capability of connection over a wireless network, rather than through the device that the user is playing on, as to reduce the latency of controller communication with Stadia services.
The controller is available in a variation of four colors at its launch.
Controller is not working wirelessly.

Use with PC platforms[edit]


Custom application reWASD lets remap whole controller and works on Windows 7 or newer. Software gives advanced customization options eg. reassigning buttons to keyboard or mouse actions, macros, activate custom modes etc.


Can be recognized as Xbox 360 controller but after manual assignment. Controller cannot be found in Supported Controller Database, so Steam recognizes it as standard DirectInput device.
Not capable of making full use of Steam Input. Steam is not letting control Stadia button light and bind additional buttons (Capture and Google Assistant).

Steam Link compatibility[edit]

Works without any drivers on any operating system that supports Steam.
Can be used just to send input from a controller to a PC. Go into Streaming options, hit Y and disable video and audio streaming.
Controller connected via USB works as expected.[1]
Won't work great unless you connect it to LAN or a low latency Wi-Fi.
