It has been a slow process, but Google Stadia has been improving in the last few months. Stadia’s free tier is now available, Chrome browser streaming has full 4K support and now, HDR can also be streamed over the web.
Previously, 4K/HDR streaming was only available on Stadia when streaming with a Chromecast Ultra. However, you can now stream the best quality possible via the Chrome web browser too, bringing it to many more users.
To get HDR running on a PC using Chrome, you will need to enable VP9 hardware decoding in the browser and be connected to a HDR capable display. You can find the full instructions, HERE.
Aside from higher quality options, another update this week finally brought wireless Stadia controller support to PCs. So you can finally play Stadia the way it was intended without a Chromecast Ultra.
