This decision is taken so that users still have time to take advantage of the controller as a conventional Bluetooth controller compatible with consoles, mobiles or PCs.

Google has decided to extend the availability of the conversion tool for the Google Stadia controller, allowing the Stadia Controller to function as a conventional Bluetooth controller. The tool, which initially had an end date set for December 31, 2023, has been silently extended until December 31, 2024.
Since January of this year, Google has offered users a web-based tool that allows them to convert their Stadia Controller to Bluetooth mode. This enables pairing the controller with smartphones, computers, and even consoles, providing flexibility in its use. Although the change is permanent, the extension of the deadline gives users more time to perform the conversion.
The Stadia controller was the only thing left of the service’s existence
Google’s decision to extend the deadline has not been accompanied by a public explanation, but it represents positive news for those who own the Stadia Controller. This extension allows users to continue enjoying the capabilities of the controller via Bluetooth for a more extended period, enhancing utility and the user experience.
Keep in mind that switching the controller to Bluetooth mode is permanent, but since Stadia is neither here nor expected, it’s unlikely that anyone is concerned about this step. From the official Google Stadia website, you have the step-by-step tutorial that will guide you through the process.
This controller is practically the only vestige attesting that Stadia ever existed. It’s a pity; I had the chance to try the service, and it worked quite well.
