It's hard to believe that Google, leader of the search engines took this long to implement search into Stadia but it's finally here. The Stadia team also announced some good other changes coming.
Not exactly a revolutionary feature a search bar, but a ridiculous thing for a store not to have. Do note though, the search bar is currently only for the Web - so mobile clients don't have it (yet?). It's funny really, such a simple feature has probably been the number 1 most requested feature by Stadia users. It's rolling out to everyone across the week, so if you don't have it yet - be patient.
That's not all though, the Stadia team also gave a sneak-preview of other upcoming UI improvements. The Library page is also getting an upgrade to help users keep track of purchased, free and Stadia Pro games. This feature will also be rolling out across this week. Here's a preview:
Stadia is also set to get an activity feed, similar in some ways to what Steam already has. No date has been given for it yet but the page appears to show invites to games and parties, and shared activity from screenshots to videos from people on your Stadia friends list. Here's the mock-up the Stadia team showed:
Lastly, Stadia is also opening up even more on Android to allow access directly on the Web without the Stadia app. Plus, you will also be able to bulk-delete captured shots and videos soon too.
Overall it seems like some nice plans in place for Stadia.
