Google Stadia has had its ups and downs, it hasn’t been the smoothest of launches, but now it appears that Google are trying to ramp the console up as it is going to start coming as a pre-installed app to Chromebooks. All new Chromebooks will now come with Stadia installed from the off.

Of course, Stadia was already playable on a Chromebook, either through the Chrome browser or via the dedicated Android app downloaded from the Play Store. By having a weblink available as part of the Chromebook experience as you turn it on offers more encouragement for users to sign up.
