If you haven’t enabled Bluetooth on your Stadia controller yet, you don’t need to rush. Google has extended the deadline for when its controllers will no longer work wirelessly from the end of this year to December 31st, 2024, as shown on its website (via @wario64).

Google previously gave users until December 31st, 2023 to complete the switch, but the extra time means people will have more of a chance to convert their controllers if they haven’t already. The controllers will only work as wired USB controllers if Bluetooth isn’t switched on by the new deadline.
