Google Stadia: the controller will not become a useless ornament, it will soon have a second life.
Google will release a patch that will allow users to use their Stadia Controller as a regular Bluetooth controller.
With the closure of Google Stadia, many have wondered what would have happened to the controller sold together with the dongle needed to access the cloud gaming service. After all, by default, it is only compatible with Stadia, a defunct service.
In short, it was feared that it would become an ornament destined to gather dust. The good news is that Google will soon release a patch that will allow users to use their Stadia Controller as a regular Bluetooth controller, which can then be paired with smartphones, tablets and laptops.
Many of you have asked us to enable Bluetooth on your Stadia Controller. We are happy to bring you good news: next week we will release a simple self-service tool that will allow you to enable Bluetooth connections on the controller

Added to this is one last gift from the Stadia team: a video game called Worm Game which was released to thank the community of players who have supported the project since its launch. We remind you that all subscribers to the service have received a full refund for all games purchased.
