Google Stadia controllers may soon work on Nintendo Switch

Google Stadia may now have been put out of its misery by the search behemoth, but there are many of us still hanging on to our controllers.

And soon it might work with Nintendo Switch.

One of the final things Google did was give Stadia Controller owners a way to act as a standard Bluetooth controller. This should then mean that the controllers can be used on PCs and other devices. But the Nintendo Switch can be picky about which controllers it works with. Enter 8BitDo.

The company already makes controller adapters that plug into the Switch and then allow Bluetooth controllers to connect without issue. And while there’s still no support for the Stadia controller, that could change.

An owner of the 8BitDo adapter reached out to the company to ask about the possibility of the Stadia controller working, and sure enough, there might well be. 8BitDo has given gamers a beta software update that enables support for the Stadia controller, suggesting that the same update will eventually roll out to anyone who wants it.

The 8BitDo controller currently retails for around $20 so while we don’t recommend ordering one just yet, it looks like it might be worth picking up if you’re looking to use your Stadia controller with your Nintendo Switch anytime soon.
