(Fun fact, if you specify Wii U it's close but Stadia beats it, meaning that these numbers are mostly caused by the original wii.)
So things aren't looking to good for Stadia. It seems the Wii has been doing much better on Google Trends by a significant margin. In fact, the Wii is the better of the two in every state leaving not one for Stadia.
To put things in perspective, if I add Xbox or PS4 to this list, their bar graph is 4x the size of both of theirs combined, showing how low both of these are ranking. So if something as irrelevant as the Wii is beating Stadia on Cyber monday (and apparently this applies for BF as well) this might be a bit concerning for Google. Who am I kidding the things a flop.
The last numbers were posted by someone here at 80k downloads, and I saw online that Destiny 2 was at 25k active users for Stadia so it may be even less than 80k actual owners.
One could say this has been a catastrophic failure, which may be why despite hinting at it, they have given us no official announcements of Stadias performance since it launched.
None of this is looking good for Stadia, the amount of money spend on hype, ads, and conferences is likely gong to cause a sting that reaches the higher ups soon.
