The Stadia AMA on Wednesday confirmed that you should use the Chromecast Ultra included in the Founder & # 39; s edition on the first day.
According to Google this week, the bundled version of the Chromecast Ultra had the "latest firmware" for playing Stadia. That said, the company hopes to update existing devices "shortly after launch" to allow you to play on any connected TV.
It appears that several owners of Chromecast Ultra (via Reddit) already running version 1.42.172094 – the current stable – are already reporting that a Stadia Controller link code appears on the screen. It is in the form of a pill-shaped balloon that says the Stadia Controller, followed by various button presses.
For those not using Stadia, the code can be deactivated by the Google Home app in the Ambient Mode settings. Until the launch of Stadia on Tuesday, it is unclear whether the current game is already running with current Ultras or whether another firmware update is needed.
This week, Google described in detail the screen and in-app process for connecting the Stadia Controller to the app and the app:
If you already have your Stadia account set up on your Chromecast Ultra, use the Stadia Controller to select the Stadia account you want to log in.
If you have not yet set up your Stadia account with your Chromecast Ultra, continue with the other steps.
Use your controller to select " + " on the screen.
On your mobile device, tap your avatar in the upper right corner of the Stadia app.
Touch Add account to Chromecast [your stadia account] Enable.
