Today we're taking a peek at the newly-released 4K capabilities of Google Stadia in web browsers - and updating you on our ever-evolving review process with the service. It's a slightly less straightforward process, reviewing a service instead of a piece of hardware.

As such, and as we're seeing here with Stadia, things can actually get quite a bit better.

Ever since Stadia launched last year, Google has been building out the service's capabilities. Not only does this mean that more games are being added to the Stadia Store - Google says we'll see 120 games come to Stadia within 2020 - but it also means that Google has been padding out Stadia's feature list.

Google Stadia’s slow growth may be due to developer uncertainty

Google's newly-launched game streaming platform may be the hot topic in gaming circles these days, at least until NVIDIA GeForce NOW fully opened its doors, but, in the grand scheme of things, Stadia isn't exactly a hot market. To date, the platform only has over two dozen games to boast of more than three months after it launched and the lack of titles may be turning off potential gamers from throwing money at it. It turns out, even Google itself may not be so eager to throw its own cash into the platform which, in turn, is giving game developers some hangups.

TouchStadia on Android lets you play using touch screen controls

It was only recently that Google finally opened the Stadia doors to smartphones outside its Pixel family but it had one important catch. It required the use of a wired controller which somewhat negated the portability benefits of the game streaming service. Fortunately, there are a few enterprising developers who refuse to take things sitting down. One such developer has brought his Chrome tool to enable Stadia gamers on Android to actually use the input method that's always available to them: touch.
