Cannot play with Google Stadia Controller on Google Chrome [SOLVED]

Hi,

The Google Stadia Controller works just fine when using it via the Chromecast on my TV; however, when connecting the Google Stadia Controller via a USB-C cable to my PC, the controller is not recognized by any game in Google Stadia on Google Chrome. I tested this both on Windows 10 and on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS on the same machine machine. 

Any ideas on how to go about this issue?

EDIT: Solved it by using the Google Stadia official USB-C cable instead of my Huawei P10's USB -C cable

Your phone cable is probably a charging only cable.  I'm not sure why they do it as it probably only saves them a couple of cents per cable, but it's not unheard of for manufacturers to include USB cables that are useless for data and only sufficient for passing power.

Well, my phone dates back to 2017. Maybe there are different versions of USB-C cables? I can trasfer data via this cable from my phone to the PC though.
