Whenever I press the Stadia button on my Stadia Controller (Founders Edition) to get into the menu (either to check connection/friends or to quit a game altogether), the controller becomes totally unresponsive, only the Stadia button itself is responsive. I can't use the D-Pad to select any options, only the mouse (when playing on PC) or by using the touchscreen (when on phone).
Anyone else familiar with this issue or knows what to do about it?
You mentioned experiencing the problem on mobile and on Chrome... how about when playing on the Chromecast?
Have you tried forcibly shutting down the controller by holding the Stadia button for 8 seconds to see if that reset might help?
If that still doesn't do it, try factory resetting the controller:
Thanks for your reply.
Unfortunately it's the same on Chromecast (even worse because I don't have the option to back out of the menu or quit Stadia when I play on TV, options that I do have on my phone (via the touchscreen) and on my laptop (via my mouse)).
Oddly enough (I forgot to mention this in my 1st post), the Google Assistant button and Capture button are the only buttons that work on my controller (on all of my devices) after pressing the Stadia button.
This issue persisted after doing a (factory) reset.
