Google has launched its own cloud video-game service. It is called Stadia and allows you, using an internet connection, to be able to enjoy a range of video games on your Android without needing to download anything, by just registering as a user of the service.
The Google video-game streaming platform
This online platform offers users access to a large game catalog like those that be found on Steam or Origin. The big difference with this one is that the game doesn't need to be downloaded onto a device because it runs on a cloud server and is controlled, in this case, from Android. As easy as that. Moreover, the service is compatible with other devices through Chromecast, so you can send your games and matches to your TV screen.
These are some of its features:
- Smooth playability.
- The picture quality of up to 4K and 60 FPS (depending on device features, available server capacity, and bandwidth).
- Extensive catalog of games to choose from.
- Share the signal with other devices.
The app works by invitation, using a code. So, how do you get the code? Well, it is a simple as going to the Google online store and purchasing the initiation pack. This includes the control compatible with the smartphone and the Chromecast device for sharing the signal with other devices.
