Stadia won't run on my Chromebook.

I have a Lenovo C330 Chromebook. I can't get Stadia to work on my Chromebook. When I startup a game Stadia keeps checking the connection but it doesn't work. It works great on my Chromecast and my windows laptop. Can you help me getting it to work on my Chromebook? I have already tried to run it in a ingongnito tab and I have resetten all chrome flags. Regards Erik

Try running Stadia in a guest session. Make sure hardware acceleration is enabled in the settings.

I did have a problem, that at least sounds similar. Whenever I tried to start Stadia on Chromebook, it apperaed to start the game only to drop out again immediately. On PC I had the same problem but noticed that chrome was trying to open a pop-up. Sure enough. Enabling pop-ups for stadia.com did resolve the issue both on chrome for PC as well as on my chromebook. Hope it helps you as well.

@Mexflex I resolved that issue by powerwashing my Chromebook it's fast and painless anyway. It append to me twice and I resolved it this way both times. 

Try it out and let me know how it worked we can move from there. Talk to you soon.

@Northlight a less extreme solution might be to reset browsing data and permissions for stadia.com. If you add Stadia to your Chromebook as an app and pin it to the Shelf, you can just right-click -> App info to jump straight to the right spot.

@codesplice I had the issue in the app and in the browser. That been the case I suppose it rules out your solution am I right?

@Northlight The Stadia app on Chrome? That's really just the web site in its own window so it's still impacted by your browser settings and extensions.

The Stadia speedtest tells me that everything is ok. Also my hp windows laptop runs fine with Stadia via the same wifi access point. Yesterday I turned of HDR in the Stadia app and after that the games are working in my Chromebook. It doesn't run very good but they run so that's the good direction. I consider this as a bug in Stadia.
