Google Launches Gaming Stream Platform Called STADIA



Today, Google announced a new digital gaming platform called STADIA in Game developer conference at San Francisco.


Stadia is a new video game platform, delivering instant access to your favorite games on any type of screen—whether it’s a TV, laptop, desktop, tablet or mobile phone.

Stadia will stream better than console quality games. It will be available this year in the US, Canada, UK and Europe. It will allow developers to sell their games in new ways, including directly via YouTube and Twitch live streams.

Google said, in a world where there are more than 200 million people watching game-related content daily on YouTube, Stadia makes many of those games playable with the press of a button.

If you watch one of your favorite creators playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, simply click the “play now” button. Seconds later, you’ll be running around ancient Greece in your own game/on your own adventure—no downloads, no updates, no patches and no installs.

Stadia controller looks like a gamepad console, but its different from others. Stadia has a button for capturing and sharing gaming directly to YouTube.

"We learned that we could bring a triple-A game to any device with a Chrome browser and an internet connection," said Google chief executive Sundar Pichai.

It is a powerful hardware stack combining server class GPU, CPU, memory and storage, and with the power of Google’s data center infrastructure, Stadia can evolve as quickly as the imagination of game creators.

It's feature a USB-C port on top, a 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom, and dedicated buttons to trigger Google Assistant-powered voice features and capture video of your game play.

Stadia cost does not mention yet. We will update you once it announced.

Similarly, Microsoft already has a gaming Subscription service with Xbox game.
