What is Google Stadia??

what is google stadia

What if you get to play games at max settings and resolution on any device you prefer. Yes, Google stadia comes with the concept of providing the best gaming experience with a screen, internet connection and a controller!! The Playstation, Xbox and High-cost gaming setup are not required for the best games like far cry, Assassin’s Creed, GTA 5, online games including Call of Duty warzone, Pubg, Apex Legends and many other games which earlier cannot be played on a normal 4 GB ram PC.

In Google stadia, the concept is that game will be running on the server of google that means all heating and power earlier used in your CPU is now used in Google Server and the output will be generated on the screen.

Before Google Stadia-

  • Screen + Gaming CPU/Xbox/Playstation = Gaming

After Google Stadia-

  • Screen + Stable Internet Connection = Gaming

How Google Stadia changed the gaming industry??

The concept of google stadia is way innovative and economical as compared to other methods to play the games. Earlier there was the requirement of Sony Playstation, Microsoft Xbox, Laptop or a PC with high Storage, Ram, Graphics card, and other components to run the games smoothly. Google Stadia cleared all these requirements and now the user can enjoy the gaming experience with his stadia controller connected to a screen which can be of mobile, television, laptop or monitor under a stable internet connection.

Google Stadia works on any size of screen

Google stated that playing games on Google Stadia are really easy and convenient. Suppose a user is watching a gaming video on Youtube and that moment he want to play the game, all he has to do is clicking the “Play Now” button that will be available below the gaming videos on youtube. After clicking “Play Now” Button, the user will be directed to the Google server where he can enjoy the game with is Stadia Controller.

Since Youtube is a Google brand and owns a large number of the gaming audience, so it is a great move from google to capture the gaming market.

What should be the Internet connection speed for using Stadia technology?

Google Stadia works on the Internet and there should be a fast internet connection for a smooth game experience. Google stated that Internet Speed should be at least 10mbps speed for 720p at 60 fps, 25mbps speed for 1080p at 60 fps game streaming. However for the 4k game streaming the internet speed should be atleast 30 mbps consistently. Also in future google have plans to provide game streaming in 8k at 120fps.

Is it good to use Google Stadia now?

Know the fact that Stadia is powerful than PS4 and Xbox One combined!! Due to this, the game developers will not hesitate in sharing their games with this technology. Also, Google has a partnership with the best brands like Unity, Havoc and Unreal. For now, Stadia features are not available in all countries hence not all players are using it. We recommend waiting some more until it is available at a global level. However, if you could not resist using this game than you can use Google Stadia.
