Google Stadia – Future of gaming ?



Stadia is a cloud-based game streaming platform that aims to bring together gamers, YouTube broadcasters, and game developers were revealed at GDC 2019. It represents an ambitious plan to flip the gaming industry on its head by taking on: major console makers like Sony and Microsoft, the PC-gaming industry, competing for streaming services, and even the live streaming platforms, like Twitch. Stadia may eliminate the need to buy gaming consoles and PCs, as it will run entirely on the Google Chrome web browser. Stadia will come with a standalone controller in a pack that will be far, far less expensive than $400 consoles which are the norm.


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.
