How It Works
The brain of Stadia will be Google’s global network of data centres that are in 200 countries. The company wants gamers to rent its servers’ computational and graphical capacity to run games, instead of owning their own console or PC. Like the Netflix of gaming, Stadia will offer users a library of games they can browse and start to play with only a click, no downloading or introducing required. Google’s servers will run the game and send users the visual output through the internet at up to 4K goals at 60 frames per second at launch, and with 8K at 120 fps available sometime in the future.
The graphics chip is delivered 10.7 teraflops of power — it can complete 10.7 trillion operations per second — compared to the PlayStation 4 Pro’s 4.2 teraflops and the Xbox One X’s 6.0 teraflops of power.
Live Streaming feature
Stadia is also introducing a feature Google calls “Crowd Play,” which allows fans of video game streamers to play with their favourite online personalities while they’re live on YouTube. This feature seems to be a direct move to lure avid Twitch users to Google’s video site.
Google Assistant feature
With the press of a button on the Stadia controller, The Assistant will automatically detect where in the game I’m stuck me related YouTube video to help me get through the tough section.
Google State Share
State Share allows developers to instantly share a playable moment from a game this will includes world state, player’s position, and inventory anything the developer wants to pack into a shareable moment.
