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
Changing your resolution on Web
Changing your resolution on mobile
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 🙂
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!
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'
