Google has made available the promised online tool for enabling Bluetooth support on the Stadia controller. This allows owners to use the cloud-streaming gamepad with PC, iOS, or Android devices, preventing the platform’s central accessory from becoming a glorified paperweight.

Stadia will close its doors permanently on Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. PT. Owners of the Stadia controller can unlock Bluetooth by visiting this web-based tool. The procedure is quick, simple, and straightforward.

For example, IO Interactive has released the long-awaited Progression Carryover tool for Hitman players, and Ubisoft is giving away free PC copies of games purchased through Stadia.

I dug out my Stadia controller to put it through its paces. After a half-hour charge (it had been in a box for two years), I connected it to my MacBook, launched Chrome, and completed the process without incident.

After that, you can pair it with compatible devices by holding down the Stadia button and the ‘Y’ button. The Bluetooth tool disables the controller’s WiFi, which is required for Stadia gameplay, so if you want to play one last time, you should wait until after the closure.

You could even take advantage of the opportunity to play the Worm Game, which Google released last week as a “thank you” to its loyal users. Stadia had a lot of passionate and dedicated fans, but they weren’t enough to keep the service running.
