Google Stadia is coming to Samsung Galaxy S20 and several other Android phones this week

Google Stadia will be extending its reach to 20 additional Android devices later this week, with Samsung Galaxy S20 leading the charge as the flagship handset. 

Having previously been exclusive to Chromecast, Google Pixel smartphones, laptops and desktop computers, Stadia has had a relatively limited reach compared to other traditional means of gaming. 

It appears Google is keen to change that perception, and this new rollout will be the first of many steps in its new vision for the streaming platform. It will certainly make it more accessible, especially once the free version which isn’t locked behind a paywall becomes available. 

We’ve include the full list of newly compatible phones below, which will be coming to Google Stadia on Thursday, February 20th:

  • Samsung Galaxy S8
  • Samsung Galaxy S8+
  • Samsung Galaxy S8 Active
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 8
  • Samsung Galaxy S9
  • Samsung Galaxy S9+
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 9
  • Samsung Galaxy S10
  • Samsung Galaxy S10+
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10+
  • Samsung Galaxy S20
  • Samsung Galaxy S20+
  • Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra
  • Razer Phone
  • Razer Phone 2 
  • ASUS ROG Phone 
  • ASUS ROG Phone 2

First launching back in November 2019, Google Stadia still requires a monthly subscription fee to gain access to its storefront, which itself hasn’t seen many games added to it in recent weeks. However, it still boasts a bunch of blockbusters including Red Dead Redemption 2, Metro Exodus and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

“This cloud-streaming service shows a lot of promise, and could be a great option for those who want to game without spending a fortune on a console. But with lots of missing features at launch, Stadia has a long way to go to become a serious challenger to PlayStation and Xbox,” reads Ryan Jones’ 3.5/5 review.

With next generation consoles on the horizon and major streaming rivals available in the form of Project xCloud and GeForce Now, it will be interesting to see how Google Stadia evolves in the coming months to tackle its competition.
