Google Stadia iOS Beta is Coming Soon Via a Web App

After releasing almost a year ago, Google Stadia will start rolling out a better for iOS users through a web app instead of the App Store.

In a report from Polygon, an iOS beta for Google Stadia is coming soon. Google has also detailed some pre-order bonuses for Cyberpunk 2077 and other upcoming games.

Within the next couple of weeks, Google will roll out the iOS beta through a web app. Doing it this way lets Google get past Apple’s rules on cloud gaming on the App Store. Other services like Microsoft’s xCloud aren’t on iOS due to similar restrictions from Apple. Additionally, the upcoming Amazon Luna will also come to iOS but through a web app as well. An article from The Verge also points out that Nvidia is rolling out a similar web app plan for its GeForce Now service.

As the one year anniversary of Google Stadia comes up, we’ve gotten some news on upcoming incentives for users. Starting today, Destiny 2: Beyond Light will be free for Stadia players. IO Interactive’s Hitman 3, which doesn’t release till January 2021, will be the first Stadia game to use State Share. For those that don’t know, State Share is a new feature that lets users play content seen in YouTube videos or screenshots. So basically if you’re watching a streamer play a game, Stadia users can jump to that specific point.

For players who preordered the Stadia version of Cyberpunk 2077, you’ll have a chance to get Stadia Premiere Edition for free. This edition includes a Stadia controller and Google Chromecast Ultra which is normally $99.99. This deal goes from now till December 18, just eight days after Cyberpunk releases.

Google Stadia released around this time last year and you can read our review of it. Since its release, Google has added games like Dead by Daylight, Celeste, Human: Fall Flat, and more. Additionally, one of the bigger games coming to Stadia is Ubisoft’s Immortals: Fenyx Rising which releases on December 3. As more Stadia news comes out, we’ll be sure to let you know.
