Adjusting your device’s resolution settings

Hi everyone,

Previously, resolution settings were controlled through the Stadia App, but applied to all of your devices. With this update, we're introducing the ability to control your resolution directly on each device you use to play. In other words, the Stadia app will no longer control the resolution for all your devices and instead only controls the resolution for that particular device. This change will give you more control over how much data you are using on the different devices.

Changing your resolution on a Chromecast Ultra device

  1. Open the Stadia menu by pressing the Stadia button on your controller
  2. Choose Options > Performance
  3. Choose the maximum resolution you’d like to set for this device. It will take effect the next time you play a game on your device.

Changing your resolution on Web

  1. Navigate to stadia.com using Google Chrome
  2. In the top right, tap your avatar > Stadia Settings
  3. Select Performance from the sidebar
  4. Choose the maximum resolution you’d like to set for this device

Changing your resolution on mobile

  1. On your mobile device, open the Stadia app
  2. In the top right, tap your avatar
  3. Select Performance
  4. Choose the maximum resolution you’d like to set for this device


You can learn more about these changes by visiting the Stadia Help Center.

When will the update be available in Germany? I can't gamble right now because I can't change any quality settings anymore. Unfortunately I only have 22 mbits download and have to reduce the quality to make it work. Unfortunately I can't change them right now.

Not sure, daselija, but I only found the layout change here in UK a few minutes ago. The original post was at around 09:00 GMT, so I think my change was delayed by about 10 hours. Hopefully it will follow swiftly in Germany 🙂

It is available in DE. Push stadia button, go to settings and scroll down.

Thanks for the update!

By the way: It's interesting to see that there is a performance option in the iOS App too. 😉 I hope we'll get to run our games there as well in the near future! 🙂

I just tried to use the performance settings on my MacBook. There, I'm stuck at 1080p again. There is no 1440p option and I cannot select 4K output!

Just to clarify, The MacBook has a 1600p resolution and 1440p output used to work on 'Best visual quality' settings before this update.

Please address this or add a dedicated 1440p option on Chrome!

Thanks!

Just cancelled my Pro subscription cos ultra-wide doesn't seem to be coming any time soon. I'll subscribe again as soon as it's available. Until then, Stadia is pointless on my monitor. I wish they would just say 'yeah, we're working on it and expect it to be ready in 2020 or 2021' or ' nah, we're not doing it'

you should have a setting about 60FPS only , depends game's resolution.

U should add the FPS next to the resolution per game.
Eg. 4K resolution with 30 FPS, or 1080P with 60 FPS.
See attachement for an example (fps in yellow).

This should give the user more flexibility in there choice.

My settings keep resetting back to 4K!

I'm trying to set it to 1080p.

Every time I close the browser it resets back to 4K!
