Yesterday, the Stadia mobile app released on the Google Play store. Whilst access to most of the app is blocked due to an invite code being required, reddit user u/AquaRegia has datamined the Stadia source code in order to produce over 4500 strings which detail different functionalities of the app. The user created a script which filtered the large amount of strings into the smaller but still significantly large number of 1520.
I’ve tried to condense these strings into different categories however due to the large amount, it’s incredibly hard to categorise them all.
The strings are here: https://pastebin.com/raw/110tFGFJ
