Google launches a gaming platform; Stadia
Google’s next target in its sights appears to be the gaming industry, with the launch later this year of its online gaming platform Stadia.
The service will let gamers leave their hefty GPUs and expensive systems behind, as it will operate on any device with a Chrome browser and an internet connection. To Google that means Stadia will launch on desktops, laptops, TVs, tablets and phones.
The service will work across platforms, so you won’t just be competing with other Stadia users. Viewers will be able to move from YouTube directly into gameplay without any downloads just by clicking a “Play Now” button. Google says this process can take as little as five seconds. Let’s hope it has more success than Google Plus which ceases to exist at the end of the April.
