Google’s cloud gaming service has been there for quite some time now and they are bringing in more features with days. While there have been reports of Stadia getting Android TV support but has not got official yet. But Google is making a progress towards the launch of Google Stadia on Android TV and it seems they have added 4K HDR support for games.
Originally spotted by Cloud Gaming XTreme over on YouTube, Google Stadia’s latest update unlocks 4K HDR support on some of the Android TV devices. There’s s “Performance” section in the Google Stadia’s settings, and via it, you could easily toggle and turn on 4K support along with HDR support on your Android TV.
9to5Google did check on this and it works on an Nvidia Shield TV. So, it’s not that your TV has to be an Android TV from birth if you have any Android TV stick or box also, you can play games at 4K HDR via Google Stadia, provided your TV has support for the resolution.
The update Stadia 2.26 does enables this on Android TV and with the update, Google has even added controller support. So, bringing in these features does make sense as soon Google Stadia might formally support on Android TV.
