Google’s Stadia controller gains basic Assistant functionality

Google’s Stadia controller

Google said from the beginning that its Stadia controller would completely change the gaming experience. A button on the controller has been designed to link players directly with the Google Assistant AI helper..

which means you can get tips and information, and even video tutorials, without losing your game. The feature has been available since early December and is now being rolled out for all players. But it doesn’t look like what Google promised.

As Android Police reports, the feature is currently only live on TVs, so mobile and desktop gamers will find the button does nothing. However, if you’re playing on TV, don’t get too excited about the button’s deals. It still doesn’t detect the game you’re playing, nor does it offer options to provide related help. Right now, it works the same way as your standard Google Assistant – you can ask weather questions and control your smart home devices, for example.

Considering that the Stadia controller has been praised by Google for over a year, the lack of development with the Wizard button is a bit of a disappointment, especially since there’s little else to distinguish the controller from the others. That being said, progress is progress, and this small advancement at least assures gamers that Google is on the case and that we expect future developments to follow shortly.
