Google Stadia is today launching a new beta for iPhone and iPad, that will allow users to enjoy the service over Safari.
From The Verge:
As per the report, it means users will be able to enjoy titles like Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Cyberpunk 2077 on iPhone and iPad. The Verge says that through a week of testing the service works "remarkably well", even with touch controls.
iOS and the App Store's restrictions have been a sticking point for cloud gaming services like Stadia and xCloud. As explained by Google, you'll be using Stadia through the iOS Safari web browser, it's not an app you can download. You can however pretend it's an app by adding the Stadia webpage to your Home Screen as an icon.
Google announced the new Stadia web app for iPhone and iPad a few weeks ago.
