The Most Recent News & Trends From Google That You May Have Missed
With the recent advancement in AI in the world of internet and user experience, Google is moving forward with a jam-packed year of news and upcoming trends.
Google’s Next-Gen Gaming - Stadia
For almost 20 years, Google thrived to put instant information in the hands of users. On March 19, 2019, Google announced its new gaming streaming service, Stadia, which will be available through the Chrome browser, Android devices and certain TVs. With Stadia, the players will be able to access the games from anywhere, at all times. And for the game developers, they are getting unlimited resources to create games. With around 200 million people watching game-related content on YouTube, Google’s new game streaming service will make many of those games playable by the click of a button.
The best part? It comes with a controller. Well, what good is a game streaming platform without a controller?
The Stadia controller is connected using WiFi to ensure the best gaming experience. It comes with buttons to instant capture, saving and sharing gameplay in 4K resolution. It also comes with an inbuilt Google assistance and microphone.
However, further details about Stadia including its pricing, launch date and the type of games available is not announced yet.
