Google Announces Stadia Game Streaming Service
Google has announced what we have known for a while, their game streaming service, but what we didn’t know until now is the name, the service will be called Stadia and touted is “Netflix for Games”. Stadia will bring new methods to purchase games such as directly via YouTube and Twitch live streams and start playing the game from within your Chrome browser.
Other functionality includes Crowd Play, when you’re watching a YouTube stream to queue up and join the streamers game. This appears to be the era of game streaming with Microsoft, Sony and NVIDIA also offering streaming products however this being in the browser may be Google’s advantage.
