Google Stadia controllers can be used wirelessly on the web

Seven months after launch, Google Stadia's controller can finally now be used wirelessly on the web.

As announced in a community update, the controller doesn't need a USB-C cable connection to play games.

"Starting this week, you can now use the Stadia Controller to play wirelessly on your laptop and desktop," said the Stadia team.

"You no longer need to connect your Stadia Controller physically to your computer to play your favourite games. You'll be able to link your Stadia Controller and Stadia.com through your Wi-Fi network and play without a USB-C cable connection."

At launch, in November 2019, the majority of promised features were missing from the streaming platform. In March, Google added a game capture library, a part that fans had asked for since Stadia was released.

The platform was also given 4K streaming support on the web. Earlier this year, the tech giant was accused of not keeping fans up to date the latest news on its streaming platform.

Last month, Google ditched its base branding to Stadia's free tier. It also made Stadia Pro free for two months. Furthermore, web support for 5.1 surround sound gaming was added to the platform.
