We all know that the tech giant Google took advantage of its space at the Game Developers Conference to announce its brand-new gaming platform. The service was born from Project Stream, a kind of Netflix for gaming and now delivers heavy titles on the Chrome browser on a notebook or PC or the app on a smartphone, tablet, and even Chromecast on TV.
Google Just Launched Its Brand-New Gaming Platform
The tech giant Google took advantage of its space at the Game Developers Conference to announce its brand new gaming platform, known as Stadia. The service was born from Project Stream, a kind of Netflix for gaming and now delivers heavy titles on the Chrome browser on a notebook or PC or the app on a smartphone, tablet, and even Chromecast on TV.
As the tech giant Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, said, “This is a platform for everyone,” while presenting the all-new gaming platform, Stadia. The product is precisely what Project Stream was, which led Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to run directly on Chrome. There is no need for specific hardware in the computer, but you need a generous connection to decrease the time between the touch on the keyboard and the character’s response.
Basically, this all-new gaming platform of the tech giant Google, of course, Stadia can run in the browser of notebooks or PCs, and not only even we can run it on smartphones, tablets, Chromebooks, and even in a TV as well that has Chromecast plugged in. Moreover, we can start gaming on a specific Stadia website or from a link within a game trailer on YouTube, the Play Store, a social media publication, or even a web address via email.
The service will recognize many controls, keyboards, and mice. Still, it has a specific control known as the Stadia Controller, which looks very similar to the Nintendo Controller Pro, but with the addition of a button to start sharing the game on YouTube. During the presentation, the Wizard button was used to open a video above the game, to understand how to get past a complicated point in Tomb Raider.
The differential of this control that the tech giant Google has created is that it works directly connected to the Wi-Fi network, with commands that go to the game on the server, and this will certainly decrease the latency; of course, it is the time between pressing the button, and the character responds on the screen.
As several servers worldwide exist, Stadia promises to deliver 1080p games at 60fps at this testing time. While at the launch, it will work with 4K, HDR, and 60 fps, and in; inure, it will go up to 8K with 120 frames per second.
On the server side, AMD is responsible for delivering hardware that the tech giant Google claims to be more powerful than the hardware present on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. In numbers, the Sony console scored 4.2 teraflops, versus 6 teraflops in the Xbox One X. In comparison, Stadia’s hardware (inside the server) made 10 teraflops.
However, one of the most curious features of Stadia is that the platform will allow the streamers who are playing and broadcasting via YouTube to open the game space to play with selected viewers. And not only that even you can send a link to a person who loads a specific point of the game, and the game will continue from that point only and back to Chrome.
Currently, the tech giant Google hasn’t unveiled any specific launch date for its well-known gaming platform, Stadia. But, sometime this year, the tech giant Google could launch its new gaming Platform in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and some European countries.

Even at an early stage, the tech giant Google says that more than 100 creative studios already have the development kit to bring their games to the well-known gaming platform, Stadia.
