Google Stadia controller's wireless capability will only work on TV with a Chromecast Ultra but a user at launch will have to plug in a USB-C cable to use it with computers or phones, the tech giant has revealed in a product video.

"As for wireless gameplay, this is limited to Chromecast Ultra. When plugged in via USB cable, the Stadia Controller acts as a standard USB HID controller and may work on other platforms depending on the game and setup," responded a Google community manager to a user on Reddit recently.
