Play Google Stadia on Rooted Android Phone
Although Google Stadia have experienced a rocky start that doesn’t mean people are no more using the cloud-based gaming service? It’s missing many marquee features, and need a ton of data, but it’s still a gateway to the future of cloud gaming. And now, if you have an android phone, you can enjoy it.
Play Google Stadia on Android
You can play Google Stadia on Pixel devices only. For this, you need any one of the Pixel phones — Pixel 4, Pixel 3, Pixel 3a, Pixel 2 — to play games on Stadia.
Still, there is a way out if you do not own any of the Pixel series devices. You just have to root your Android phone using Magisk. For this, you’ll also need a PC with ADB installed or a terminal emulator app on your phone. Now, just follow the instructions listed out by XDA and download the Stadia app to enjoy your favorite game on any Android phone.
The Caveat to Keep in mind
The fact is, rooting your phone and following these instructions isn’t a risk-free process, as it’s very much possible to brick your device and you will void your warranty.
In any way, Stadia checks for two system attributes to check if your phone is Stadia-ready. With this process you can fool the Stadia app be making it think, it’s been installed on a Google Pixel 4.
Most of the time, the average consumer doesn’t know about rooting their phone, let alone how to do it. Most people will need to wait for the service as it is yet to launch on their device before trying it out.
Of course, Google will beef up its device detection methods probably in a future update, but for now, but still, you can make Stadia yours on any rooted Android phone with a solid internet connection.
