Google has finally unlocked achievements for its streaming service, Stadia, a month after its official launch.
Players will now receive notifications when playing on desktop, laptop and TV, and can view their full achievements list online, but mobile support won’t be available until 2020.
If you picked up Stadia at launch and have been playing for a few weeks now, progress you’ve already made toward Stadia achievements has been tracked and will be applied automatically.
Players will receive notifications when they secure an achievement in games that support them (though at the moment these notifications can’t be turned off, which isn’t so great for those recording videos) and they can view a list of their own achievements and those of their friends on the web.
In a community update, Google said the following features are now available:
- On both Chrome browser and Chromecast, players can open their own profile to view the last three achievements earned for the last game played. Clicking on one of these achievements will open a detailed Achievements page.
- On Chrome browser, players can open a full view of all games played by the player.
- Selecting a game will open a detailed page containing all Achievements for a game, status of each achievement, and progress if provided by the game.
- Players can view the Achievements of other players who have chosen to make them visible by selecting the other player’s profile.
- You can control who can view your Achievements in your Stadia Settings, under Friends & privacy.
