oneplus 8 pro back glacial green

The new OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro go on sale today and they will become the two newest phones to support Google Stadia gameplay. OnePlus announced the support in a forum post (via TechRadar). 

Stadia is Google’s game streaming service where you sign up to a monthly payment plan and can play an unlimited number of games. The downsides to Stadia, as highlighted in our review, are not limited to the fact there are several performance issues.

There simply aren’t that many devices that you can get Stadia on, and fewer countries than that where you can actually access the service. OnePlus adding its new phones to the mix is good news, but means Stadia is still lagging behind something like Apple Arcade in our eyes – an Apple exclusive perhaps, but every modern Apple device can run it.

On the bright side, we reviewed the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro and found them to be absolutely excellent devices. If you pick one up and you live in a supported country, at least you’ll be able to wile away some quarantine time with Stadia.
