So I dunno if this has been posted before (searching didn't yield any results) but how is it that Google, a company based on Search has no search option to search for a game within the Stadia app?
I gotta assume this is on John Justice's fabled whiteboard but it strikes me as crazy this isn't already in there.
Good point, I am missing this function as well. Left feedback in the Stadia App for that already a few weeks ago, maybe it would make sense for you to also leave feedback, so that they can work on improvements? 🙂
I can only assume this was left out on purpose due to the fact that they knew it was going to have a limited game library at launch. I'm sure many of the current design considerations were also made with the small initial library taken into consideration and that there are plans to change much of the way things are organized as it grows.
If a search would have been in the app at launch, even more people than already are would have been annoyed. Searching for existing games (on other platforms) would have come up as “No results found”.
Also, it takes longer to type in the search words than brows the ”entire” store. 😂 But I’m sure we will see a search function soon as the library expands.
Just a matter of time before the Web store page and App start to get updated with the relevant links and meta data.
You can already see that there is some work going on the Store already, just that most of the lists are empty currently.
Note: Interesting to see Devolver Digital listed in the publishers, they do a lot of work publishing indie games.
