4. Google Stadia iOS Google Stadia is now available on iOS devices. Until now, the cloud-based game streaming service had been limited exclusively to Android, a fact which many players criticized as one of many issues with the service on launch. It’s important to note that the current iteration of iOS compatibility is still in beta, meaning that players might encounter certain bugs and other issues. Still, fans will be glad to see that Google is continuing to address the Stadia’s faults as they attempt to make the service more robust and accessible.
