Stadia Players Reporting their Chromecast Units are Overheating and Shutting Down

Google Stadia players are taking to social media and online forums to complain about the gaming system overheating and shutting down Chromecast units…

Tech giant Google just launched its streaming, cloud-based game service Stadia just days ago. And already, there’s been quite a bit of criticism about the platform. News outlets and industry watchers have said the quality Google promised isn’t living up to the hype. But others are now reporting real issues with Stadia — it’s overheating and shutting down Chromecast Ultra units.

Google Stadia Overheating and Shutting Down Chromecast Units

Complaints about Google Stadia overheating and shutting down Chromecast units are popping up on online forums and social media, alike.

Players have experienced interruptions and other issues. Still, some report their Chromecasts abruptly turning off and when manually rebooting, the units are very hot to the touch.

While Chromecasts running hot isn’t out of the ordinary, gamers generally play for prolonged periods, which can damage the units beyond repair.
