Yes, you heard it right. As promised in the previous month, Google Stadia has been finally launched for iOS devices. The service can now be accessed from both iPads and iPhones through the Safari browser. This news was announced a few days back on the official Twitter account of Google Stadia.
Currently, Stadia isn’t available for download from the App Store. This is because of the regressive policies of Apple. Anyway, with a subscription to Google Stadia, you can play it from the Safari browser.
A few days back, an official announcement was made by Google on Twitter that currently, Apple doesn’t allow apps related to game streaming on the App Store. And before making the games available within the streaming apps, Apple wants every company to list their games on its store, separately. That might sound weird and clunky.
So, for the same reason only, Google Stadia made a decision to bypass this policy of the App Store and has created games available for playing through the Safari browser.
