Technology. mobile. You can play Google Stadia on iOS using this neat custom browser

Technology. mobile.
Google Stadia delivers one of the best game streaming experiences out there today, but like GeForce Now and Xbox Game Pass, Apple makes it extraordinarily difficult to get Stadia into the App Store. Luckily, there might be a way through the web. Thanks to a custom browser app, you can get Stadia up and running on iOS in a matter of minutes.

If you’ve been keeping an eye on Stadia fans for the past few weeks, you might be aware that iOS 14 makes it possible to run Stadia through an iOS web browser. By tricking the user agent and heading to Stadia’s web app, playing games is indeed possible on an iPhone or iPad. It’s just… well it’s a pain in the butt.
Thankfully, someone has developed a way to make this process easier. Reddit user u/zmknox took the time to create a custom browser that’s fully in support of the App Store but allows users to run Google Stadia with ease. Simply download “Stadium” from the App Store and you’ll get a very basic browser that’s designed to do two things.
First, Stadium runs in fullscreen, meaning you’ll have no browser UI elements in the way of a Stadia game. Further, Stadium has the ability to set a custom user agent which allows users to “trick” Stadia into working. Plus, the app makes it possible to use a game controller with “supported” webpages. u/zmknox explains the setup process below:

Set primary URL to https://stadia.google.com/home
Set user agent to Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_5) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/85.0.4183.83 Safari/537.36
In the … menu, select Authenticate, and visit https://accounts.google.com/
After you’ve signed in to your Google account, tap done. You may also need to select “Go Home” from the … menu.
That’s it! Now every time you launch Stadium, it brings you right to the Stadia landing page.

How does it work? Once set up properly, it works pretty well! I was able to get this up and running in just a few minutes on my iPad Pro, and with a PS4 controller paired, I didn’t notice any lag issues with Orcs Must Die 3. It’s worth noting that Stadia can’t recognize which controller you’re using with this, but I’m sure most people can work around this.
This trick might not last forever, though, which is unfortunate because it works rather well! The good news? Based on a recent Apple changelog, it seems official Stadia support could be relatively close. We’ll just have to wait and see for now. In the meantime, this is an excellent stopgap that won’t cost you a dime.
