Another week, another Stadia promise coming to fruition. Stadia announced today on Twitter and a post on their community blog that the platform will be playable on February 20, 2020 on a big ol’ pile of Android phones.

Sorry, iPhone fans, still nothing for you. But the Android faithful will be able to play (over Wi-fi) on their phones by this weekend.

Here is the list of phones that will be able to stream Stadia this week (in addition to the Pixel 2, 3, and 4 – which have been compatible since day one):

  •  Samsung Galaxy S8
  • Samsung Galaxy S8+
  • Samsung Galaxy S8 Active
  • Samsung Galaxy Note8
  • Samsung Galaxy S9
  • Samsung Galaxy S9+
  • Samsung Galaxy Note9
  • Samsung Galaxy S10
  • Samsung Galaxy S10E
  • Samsung Galaxy S10+
  • Samsung Galaxy Note10
  • Samsung Galaxy Note10+
  • Samsung Galaxy S20
  • Samsung Galaxy S20+
  • Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra
  • Razer Phone
  • Razer Phone 2
  • ASUS ROG Phone
  • ASUS ROG Phone II

Stadia is now my primary gaming platform, but to be honest, I don’t mess around with the phone functions very much. My old eyes can’t handle the tiny image. Hell, I even struggle with my Switch in handheld mode these days. But for those that have been waiting for it, this phone patch will be welcome news indeed.
