9to5Google After deciphering the Stadia 3.15 version of the APK, I found that there is an experimental feature that allows your phone to be used as a Stadia controller. This function is called “Bridge Mode”. It basically uses the virtual buttons on the touch screen to control the game on the TV. It can be said to be a similar experience to playing Stadia on a mobile phone, but it will not be blocked by your fingers. Picture it. At present, the only one that can be used on TV with Chromecast Ultra is the official controller.
In addition to directly using the virtual buttons on the touch screen, the bridge mode also allows you to connect to another controller through your phone. According to 9to5Google, it is currently uncertain whether the controller can only be connected via USB-C or Bluetooth. However, even if Bluetooth is available, this will inevitably add another layer of delay, so USB may be a better choice. Regardless of the mode, the phone must be on the same WiFi network as the Chromecast, and like the Stadia controller, a four-button pairing code must be entered for pairing.
In addition to the bridge mode, 9to5Google also found evidence in the program code that Google is strengthening the integration of contacts, so that anyone who has your phone or email in Google contacts can add you as a friend. In addition, Google seems to have also designed a new key combination (start + up key), which can directly switch the screen subtitles.
