Stadia brings touch controls to iOS devices

Earlier this year, Stadia unveiled a new method for playing cloud games on Android using touch controls. Now this same possibility is coming to the Stadia iOS app.

With the release of HUMANKIND at Sega, a 4X game that rivals the Civilization series, the new touch controls of Stadia that allow you to use controls similar to those found in mobile games. The feature makes perfect sense in the context of HUMANKIND, as using a controller would be slow and clunky for a 4X game. This feature isn’t as obvious as you might think, because Stadia has to accurately map the touches on the screen.

In this game, using the touch controls the system is able to distinguish between one-, two- and three-finger presses and other gestures. A touch will allow you to select objects, holding down will display a preview, while keeping the pressure you will be able to move the view. With two taps you can delete the actions, while using three fingers you can open the menu.

After arriving on Android, Google announced that players can now also use this feature via the Stadia’s iOS web app. Unfortunately, this feature is currently only available on HUMANKIND, but it should only be a matter of time before other games introduce it as well.
