After more than 500 days, Google Stadia, the game streaming platform that is owned by the creator of the gold standard of search engines, is finally getting a search bar.

As detailed in the latest Stadia update, the team confirmed that the search bar on Stadia for Web is rolling out now to all players this week. There will also be a new updated UI along with better library sorting that will let players keep track of their purchased, free, and Pro games.

The Stadia team also shared work-in-progess screenshots of upcoming features, including an Activity Feed that will show off your best video captures, help friends find your game states with State Share, and explore content from other players.

Players will also soon be able to access Stadia directly through an Android web browser rather than only through the Stadia app. Additionally, captures from gameplay will also soon be able to be deleted in bulk on Web.

Despite Google Stadia shutting down its internal studios earlier this year, the streaming platform is continuing to push updates and has even promised that Stadia would be getting more than 100 games in 2021, including Resident Evil Village.
