The Stadia Controller Will Also Work As A Standard USB Controller

The Stadia Controller Will Also Work As A Standard USB Controller

Google has confirmed via Twitter that the Stadia controller will function as a standard controller, outside of Stadia, when plugged in via USB.

We’re sorry if we didn’t get back to you sooner. We’ve designed the Stadia Controller to work best on Stadia. When plugged in via USB cable, the Stadia Controller acts as a standard USB HID controller and may work on other platforms depending on the game and setup.— Stadia (@GoogleStadia) July 3, 2019

Players will be able to use their Stadia controllers to play games outside of the Stadia environment, like regular PC games, for example.
