Google To Reveal Its Mysterious Online Gaming Platform
The tech giant Google is preparing to unveil an important announcement regarding the video game segment. As the tech giant Google already sent invitations to specialized press to attend the keynote of Game Developers Conference (GDC), the most important annual event of game developers.

The rumors of the “Netflix for Games” arose at the beginning of 2018, when the information filtered the intentions of the tech giant Google to launch its own game streaming service, code-named as Project Yeti, it was initially thought that the technology would produce a dedicated console, or it would use its Chromecast devices, but now as we told it seems different.
Months later, the tech giant Google officially launched Project Stream, a service that allowed to run the game Assassin’s Creed Odyssey from any computer using the Chrome browser. For its first pilot phase, Project Stream chose the well-known game of Ubisoft, as we all know very well that it is one of the most demanding visual titles of this generation.
With the testing phase completed, the GDC would be the ideal scenario to share the development and make a future announcement. Since the revelation of Project Yeti, the business partners that offered the information to the media anticipated that the tech giant Google would launch its streaming service by the end of 2019.
However, the creators of the PlayStation were the first to experiment with PlayStation Now, a rental service built with the technology of Gaikai and OnLive, two companies that once tried to offer a video game by streaming.
The case of the tech giant Microsoft is significant, as the current push is in a monthly rental service that offers download of video games, and not only that even the company has already announced that they are working on a platform that lives up to its name and takes advantage of Azure technology simply to facilitate remote play via streaming.
Moreover, the tech giant Google would be in a good position to expand its new Project Stream to other markets, although for that it will need the support of important partners that help to strengthen it, as well as a broadband connection that allows a fluid game to have good quality.
The speed of connection and latency are the two keys for a streaming service to work, something that seems complex outside the United States, South Korea, and Japan. So, what do you think about this?
