Google Stadia will finally be playable on iPhones…as a web app Google Stadia

Good news for the number of Google Stadia fans out there: it will finally be playable on iPhones. But to circumvent Apple’s App Store restrictions, the game streaming service will work on iOS through a web app – and it’ll start testing the method in the next several weeks, per Polygon.

Apple has kept game streaming services off the App Store unless they meet strict requirements – including giving Apple purview over which games are allowed in each service’s catalogue along with the storefront’s usual 30% tithe of in-app and subscription purchases. Google’s workaround involves running the service through a progressive web app, essentially routing play through the Safari browser instead of a dedicated app.
