Stadia Launches Direct Touch Feature

Stadia Launches Direct Touch Feature

With the release of HUMANKIND, Stadia has launched a new feature for the streaming service called Direct Touch. Direct Touch allows for touch controls when playing on a phone screen (exclusive to Android for now).

Stadia games also support on-screen virtual controls, but it seems that Direct Touch is specifically integrated into the game’s design. It’s definitely a feature unique to Stadia, so far, and it opens up the possibility for any game to feature better touch controls when streaming, as opposed to needing to purchase a smartphone specific version on the app store.
