Google Stadia

Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud will not be available on the App Store.

Google, Microsoft

Thanks to Apple’s App Store Policies, dumbest ones I would say, you will not see Google Stadia or Microsoft xCloud apps on iOS anytime soon. Back in the days, Google did have iOS Client, and Microsoft was testing there iOS client as well.

However, it was discontinued soon. And now Apple has also confirmed the same. They stated that not only Google Stadia or xCloud, but any game streaming service, will not be accepted on the App store. This is because they don’t follow several guidelines. For example, you have to submit every game individually on their App Store.

As per the spokesperson,

Our customers enjoy great apps and games from millions of developers. Gaming services can absolutely launch on the App Store as long as they follow the same set of guidelines applicable to all developers, including submitting games individually for review, and appearing in charts and search. In addition to the App Store, developers can choose to reach all iPhone and iPad users over the web through Safari and other browsers on the App Store.

This statement clearly denotes that Apple is behind the money, as usual. Recently an app called “Hey” was pulled down from App Store just because it doesn’t have the inbuilt sign-in option. And the inbuilt sign-in option gives Apple its 30% cut.

As I said, Apple is just behind the money. And seeing the spokesperson’s statement. we can clearly figure out how uneducated people at Apple are. This streaming platform like Stadia and xCloud allows you to play PC titles, especially the AAA titles, that takes a lot of hardware power to run on PC, on the smartphone. Your Puny A13 or whatever SoC can’t even handle these games.

You goddamn iPhone cannot match a gaming PC FFS! Stop being a money-centric business and get real for once.
