  • The controller is proprietary, and not usable with anything else.

After a firmware update I've been using my Stadia controller as a gamepad in steam. It's working great but it has to be wired. Just thought i'd chime in.
It's not really any more proprietary than any other gamepad. SDL 2 already has support for it wired into their next release FYI.

Weirdly I couldn't get it to work on my Linux box or my wife's Mac prior to the firmware update. After it seems to be functioning fine. I may have initially had a wonky connection with the cable or who knows what else. Either way it is now not to bad a game pad for non-Stadia stuff.

Cancelled my Pro, Destiny 2 is nice and all but that plus the few others just isn't enough of a hook right now.
