Google Stadia: The Future Of Gaming?

It is less that a week until the launch of Google Stadia, the gaming platform which wowed gamers at E3. On the 19th November 2019, one of the most anticipated launches in the gaming world for this year, Google Stadia will be available to the public. Until now, there has been no mention of the games for launch day, a tweet from the official Google Stadia account changed this.

WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT GOOGLE STADIA?

As the name suggests, Google Stadia is the gaming initiative by the internet giant Google. The new gaming platform is unlike it’s rivals XBOX and PlayStation 4, as there is no physical console, PC or Portable device. You will be able to play it on almost any screen.

Google Stadia is a fully cloud-streamed approach to gaming. All you need is a strong internet connection and you can play the very best games on the market on a TV, smartphone or another device at up to 4K resolution and 60 frames per second.

How will you connect to the TV if there is no console? Google Stadia is not completely hardware free. To connect to your TV you will need a Google Chromecast Ultra Device, with the ability to connect to any Smart TV and the Google Stadia Controller.

However, if you would like to open Google Stadia on your Desktop or Laptop, you’ll need the controller and the Google Chrome web browser. Google recently announced that mobile usage has been restricted to the Google Pixel smart phone range for now, meaning you will need a Pixel 3 or later to play.
