The Stadia cloud gaming service will finally start working on Google's newest streaming hardware, Chromecast with Google TV, starting June 23.


Google announced on Monday that a number of other Android TV devices, including Nvidia Shield TV and some Hisense and Xiaomi smart TVs, will support Stadia later this month, too.

Bringing support to more Android TV devices and the new Chromecast has been a long time coming for Stadia, which didn't officially support Google's new streaming dongle when it launched last fall, though Stadia has supported the existing Chromecast Ultra since launch. (There have been workarounds to get Stadia streaming on Android TV, though with some drawbacks.)

Android TV devices still require you use a compatible Bluetooth controller or Stadia's own gamepad to play games on the big screen, as mobile devices or other input mechanisms don't work when streaming through Android TV.
