How to play Google Stadia games on unsupported phones?

Since mid-February, it is already possible to run Stadia games on 18 mobiles beyond the Google Pixel series models. The increased availability of the platform was welcomed by the owners of the new compatible terminals.

However, the number is still minimal, and the fact that only high-end mobiles are included means that millions of people around the world cannot execute Stadia games on their mobiles.

Luckily, there are ways to skip this restriction to be able to enjoy Stadia's extensive catalogue of games on any mobile, whether or not it is compatible.

The best known and easiest way to play Stadia on any mobile is to do it through Google Chrome. As we explained at the time, Stadia can only be used through a limited number of Android devices, Chromebooks and TVs with Chromecast Ultra. However, taking advantage of a simple trick, it is possible to use Stadia from the mobile through the browser.

To do this, the first thing you need is to download Google Chrome in case you didn't have it yet. Then, follow these steps:

  1. Open Google Chrome and display the options menu in the upper right.
  2. Activate the "Desktop mode" option and access the Stadia page .
  3. Log in to the platform and start the game you want to run.

Keep in mind that, although this is the simplest option, it is also the one with the most limitations, the most important being the inability to use remote controllers such as the Stadia Controller.

If you want to enjoy Stadia on any mobile phone and get the most out of it, without any limitation, the process becomes somewhat more complicated. Keep in mind that to do so, you will need to have the mobile rooted.

That said, as explained in XDA, you will also need the Stadia app installed on the mobile and the Magisk service, in addition to having a computer with ADB drivers installed. When you meet the requirements, these are the steps you should follow:

  1. On your mobile, open the MagiskManager app and look for the MagiskHide Props configuration module.
  2. Install the module and restart the device.
  3. With the mobile connected to the computer via the USB cable, open a command window and execute the "props" instruction
  4. Enter "5" to add or edit custom props.
  5. Enter "n" to add a new prop.
  6. Enter "ro.product.model" to modify the corresponding value.
  7. Now, enter "Pixel 4" so that the system identifies your mobile model as a Pixel 4.
  8. Enter "and" to accept.
  9. Now, enter "n" to prevent the mobile from restarting.
  10. Repeat steps 5 through 8, but in step 6 enter the value "ro.product.manufacturer", and in 7 "Google".
  11. Now, restart your mobile.
  12. To check if the changes have been applied correctly, run the getprop ro.product.model and getprop ro.product. Manufacturer commands.

That is all. You have to open Stadia on your mobile and try to run any game. Since the system will identify your mobile as a Google Pixel 4, you should be able to play without any problem.
