by June 12, 2019 0 comments

If you need to instantly search for almost information on the web, Google search is our choice by default. For the past two decades, Google has instantly delivered almost any information which is made possible from their data centres and network capabilities right at your fingertips. The company is now using that technology to change how you access and enjoy video games. Google Stadia is a new video game platform, designed to deliver instant access to your favourite games on any type of screen be it a TV, laptop, desktop, tablet or mobile phone.

With Google Stadia, the search giant will deliver games in resolutions up to 4K and 60 frames per second with HDR and surround sound. In Stadia, Google has worked to converge two distinct worlds: people who play video games and people who love watching them. Stadia will lift restrictions on the games we create and play and the communities who enjoy them.

Using globally connected network of Google data centres, Stadia will free players from the limitations of traditional consoles and PCs.
