When using your Xbox console to play Stadia, there are a few things to keep in mind. Press the Menu button on your Xbox controller, then select Use game controls before selecting a game.

This ensures that your browser recognizes your Xbox controller as a controller, rather than a mouse and keyboard.

Second, even in controller mode, pressing the B button on your controller acts like pressing the Esc key on a keyboard.
