Use this unofficial Chrome extension to get Discord Rich Presence on Google Stadia
If you want high-end graphic performance, you should get a capable gaming rig. However, Google belittled this concept in November by launching Stadia that can help us play intensive titles on any available screen irrespective of the hardware configuration.
In short, Stadia is a handy cloud gaming platform. Meaning, you won’t have to download or install games. Fetch it a device with support for Google Chrome web browser and there you go! Data centres of the Mountain View tech giant around the globe will handle the processing power.
Though Google Stadia works on any PC and TV (with Chromecast Ultra), the list of supported smartphones only include Pixel 2/3/3a/4. However, we have spotted and published a way to extend it to non-Pixel smartphones with a Chromium app.
Now, let me invite your attention to an application called Discord. As a gamer, I don’t think it is alien to you. Just in case you are not aware, Discord is a cross-platform communication app specifically developed for gamers. Users in a chat channel can interact with each other through different ways.
More than 250 million gamers rely on Discord to share their playing experiences with each other on the platform. If any of them get onboard with Stadia, they might miss Rich Presence. It is a feature that allows the users to share game progresses without switching between windows.
Wait what! We have found an unofficial Chrome extension (StadiaRPC) to get Discord RPC on Google Stadia. Owing to the nascent stage of the add-on, you need to be aware of the possible bugs it may contain. Follow the steps given below to experience it yourself.
Head over to https://github.com/lolamtisch/Discord-RPC-Extension. Download BOTH the Chrome extension and the Desktop application. They are both required for the plugin to work. Download the StadiaRPC Chrome extension file from the Chrome web store.
So yeah, you should install two different browser extensions, Discord Rich Presence and StadiaRPC. Once you finish with all these, you can share your gaming experiences with your friends. For reporting bugs, you can join this Discord server.
