    Google Stadia now fully supports Galaxy S21 and Galaxy Note 20 phones

    Stadia is Google's game streaming service that makes it possible to play console games on a variety of devices including smartphones. Since all of the heavy lifting is done in the cloud, console games can easily be played on mobile devices.

    Several Samsung devices have been fully compatible with Stadia since last year. Google has now expanded the list with 11 more Samsung devices. They include the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy Note 20 phones.

    Samsung tablets also pick up Stadia support

    Stadia has supported some of the best Samsung phones since February last year. With this latest update, all Galaxy S handsets from the Galaxy S8 onwards and Note handsets from the Galaxy Note 8 onwards are now fully compatible with Stadia.

    It's technically possible to steam Stadia games on any Android device. However, that's done in an experimental capacity. Google maintains a list of devices that it supports officially for the game streaming service.

    They include devices from Samsung and other manufacturers. These devices deliver the best possible Stadia experience without requiring any tweaks from the user. Since the games are being streamed over the internet, a great internet connection is obviously of vital importance.

    The list has now been expanded to include the Galaxy S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra in addition to the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra. Some of the best Samsung tablets are now on the list as well. They include the Galaxy Tab S5e, Tab S6, Tab S7 and S7+, the Galaxy Tab A and A7.

    It's interesting to note that Samsung's latest foldables are still missing from the list. One could argue that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is the perfect candidate for official Stadia support. There's no saying when it will get it, though.
