In a tutorial on YouTube, Spaniard Isaaki_Gaming explains in detail how he managed to get Google’s game streaming service up and running on his Nintendo Switch. First, he installed switchroot LineageOS 15.1, an operating system based on Android 8.1 Oreo. He also made use of the custom NX bootloader Hekate 5.2 and Magisk 20.1 to root the Switch.

Via the Stadia smartphone app, Isaaki_Gaming then got both the Stadia games and the two Joy-Con controllers working. The Spaniard has not yet managed to get the controllers working via the Chrome browser.
