Google Stadia does not work properly on MacBook Pro, and the Touch Bar is to blame

Apple Arcade contra Google Stadia, similitudes y diferencias

Por este motivo, cada vez que los usuarios de Stadia se encuentren en esta situación tendrán que cerrar el navegador presionando las teclas command+q, o bien command+option+esc. Gracias a estas combinaciones, podremos forzar el cierre del navegador, aunque no termina de ser la mejor solución para una experiencia de uso satisfactoria. Esperemos que Google no tarde demasiado en resolverlo.

The new Google Stadia has come on strong, although it is not entirely clear whether they have managed to do so on solid ground or whether they have found themselves in quicksand from the start. This attractive cloud-based gaming service, which recently went live for buyers of the Stadia Founders Edition and Stadia Premier Edition, provides access to games in 4K Ultra HD quality with a 60 FPS refresh rate . And on all types of devices.

One of the user groups that already benefit most from this service is those who own a Mac, since just by using Chrome we can access the service without the need to install additional programs or updates. Thus, they can finally access the latest games which in some cases may not be available in a MacOS version. However, it seems that the launch has led to some small problems with MacBook Pro.

Although users of the service indicate good performance on their Macs, owners of MacBook Pro with a Touch Bar prior to the new 16-inch version are having trouble getting out of games . Apparently, it is necessary to hold down the escape key to exit Stadia, and these laptops only have the Touch Bar virtual key, which doesn’t seem to get along well with Chrome.
