Google Stadia: Online-Videogames Via Youtube

With the help of their data centers and network capabilities, Google is hoping to change how people access and enjoy video games with Google Stadia. A new new video game platform was announced at Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco will deliver instant access to games on any type of screen – TV’s, laptops, desktops, tablets and mobile phones. Google wants to make those games available in resolutions up to 4K and 60 frames per second with HDR and surround sound. The service will launch later this year in select countries including the U.S., Canada, U.K. and much of Europe.

To build Stadia Google-Engineers have worked to converge two distinct worlds: People who play video games and people who love watching them. The system shall lift restrictions on game creation and on gameplay. Googles connected networks allow Stadia to free players from consoles and PCs.

The system will allow users to access their games at all times, and on virtually any screen. Stadia will cooperate with other Google services. There are currently 200 million people watching game-related content daily on YouTube. Now Stadia makes many of those games playable with the press of a button. While watching a Youtuber streaming his gameplay online, people may click the “play now” button and start playing the same game on the same screen without downloads, updates, patches or installs.

Google also introduced a dedicated Stadia controller that was developed with the help of gamers. It has a a direct connection to the data center through Wi-Fi for a good gaming performance. It also includes a button for instant capture, saving and sharing gameplay in up to 4k resolution. It also has a Google Assistant button and built-in microphone.
With Google’s experience, reach and decades of investment they are hoping to make Stadia a powerful gaming platform for players, developers and YouTube content creators.
