On Thursday, Google announced iOS support for the Stadia cloud gaming service, and this step is in the footsteps of Microsoft in switching to the web to circumvent the restrictions of the Apple App Store, as Google says it is working on creating an advanced web application version of Stadia that will run in the mobile version of the Safari browser From Apple, similar to how Microsoft intends to introduce its competing xCloud service on iOS sometime next year.
According to the “verge” site, Google intends to beat Microsoft through a general test of its version in the coming weeks, as Nvidia announced today that it is also releasing an experimental web application from GeForce Now cloud gaming service on iOS available today.
In late August, Apple clarified its rules for cloud games, telling service providers such as Google and Microsoft that their applications were not allowed in the App Store due to restrictions imposed by Apple on programs that broadcast games on the iPhone and iPad.
Apple has also relaxed its restrictions after public criticism from Microsoft and others, but the App Store is still asking companies to submit individual games to review the App Store.
Microsoft described this compromise as a bad experience for consumers, before deciding that it would develop a web app version of xCloud for iOS instead, and Google is doing the same now.
The iOS test announcement coincides with the first anniversary of Stadias launch to the public last fall, as Google today also announced that its first list of free games will be coming to Stadia, after revealing earlier this week that the basic version of Bungie’s Destiny 2 will not require a monthly subscription to Stadia Pro at $ 10 a month and can now be possible for anyone with a Google Account who subscribes to Stadia.
State Share, the easy-to-stream Stadia feature that allows players to share their point of view in a game with viewers or followers on social media, will launch in January with the release of Hitman 3 from IO Interactive.
Google also uses its first anniversary as an opportunity to promote the new Stadia statistics, and the company will not yet disclose how many people have subscribed to Stadia or subscribed to its Pro service, but the company says it has introduced more than 80 games in the past 12 months to the platform, with Plan to support 135+ games by the end of the year.
It has also added over 100 new features to the platform in the last 12 months, including first-time family sharing earlier this month.
