As planned, the Stadia servers were gradually shut down on January 19, 2023 at 9 a.m. Some were still able to play an hour after the planned shutdown. We took it as an opportunity to reminisce and say goodbye:

Michael Förtsch was a guest on the show and of course has his own opinion on the subject, which led to an XXL episode. Here to look.

Of course it got very emotional for many of us. That’s why creating the videos was something of a personal process. Our community has a special connection with Stadia here. Maybe you would like to share your story with us? I enjoy reading your comments on it.

Punctual and well timed for the end of Google Stadia, the first locations with RTX 4080 graphics cards were made public last Thursday – including in Frankfurt.

  • Improved accessibility with controllers in the tvOS app


  • the notification display has been redesigned for an improved user experience
  • Fixed various crashes and minor issues

Interesting for the future could be: Shadow buys Genymobile. The purchase is described below:

“Genymobile’s unique expertise in the Android platform and deep virtualization experience will enable SHADOW to accelerate its roadmap and increase its industrial competitiveness to become the leading cloud-based collaboration platform for businesses, gamers and creatives to become. Arnaud Dupuis, Founder and CEO of Genymobile*, Eric Sèle, Chairman of Genymobile and CEO of SHADOW, and Octave Klaba, Chairman of SHADOW, share a vision of a future sovereEsports Extrascloud computing environment for consumers and professionals.”

I’m very excited to see what’s in store for us. As a promo at the end of Stadia, you can currently get 15% off the subscription (also applies to the Power Upgrade) in the first month with the code “PressF”.
