What is Stadia and How It Works – Everything You Need To Know Before Launch

By | February 18, 2020


Okay, so you’re wondering what exactly is
Stadia? We’ve got you covered. Stadia is an all-new way to enjoy your favorite hit video games. Only you don’t need an expensive console
or PC to play. Stadia streams games directly from Google’s
data centers to your devices. It’s kind of like streaming music or TV
shows, but with high quality video games. To play on your TV, plug in a Chromecast Ultra,
and setup your Stadia Controller using the Stadia app on your phone. Once you’re set up, you buy the game you
want, then you play it. Instantly. You don’t have to wait for it to download,
either. Seconds after you press purchase, you’ll
be streaming your game directly from the Internet to your screen. And since it’s powered by Google’s data
centers, your games can run at premium specs. Up to 4K resolution and 60 frames per second
with high dynamic range colors. But it doesn’t stop with your TV. You can bring the same incredible gaming experiences
to just about all the screens in your life. Your favorite games on your laptop, desktop,
and select tablets and smartphones. Is your roommate interrupting your game to
watch a show? Switch over to your laptop and pick up right
where you left off. On a trip? Stream games on your smartphone. Anywhere you’ve got WiFi, you’re just
a click away from buying the latest titles and instantly playing your games. Which also means you’re always a click away
from playing with your friends. The Stadia controller connects directly to
the Stadia servers to give you lightning fast response time when playing wirelessly. If you’re in love with another controller,
or a mouse and keyboard, you can use those to play Stadia on your computer. Stadia Pro is our premium subscription. It gives you up to 4K resolution, with 5.1
surround sound, and free games regularly. The longer you’re subscribed to Stadia Pro
and the more free games you claim, the larger your collection will be. Now you’re an expert in all things Stadia, coming to all kinds of screens everywhere. For the latest updates on Stadia, follow @GoogleStadia
or visit stadia.com.

    I know Stadia has pretty much failed, but I'm not mad, and I don't understand the hyped hatred.
    I'm actually happy they tried, but I think we are not ready for this technology yet.

    Neat idea, not paying for games on any launcher other than Steam though.

    Imagine you have a Logitech wheel, pedals, stick shift and a stand to put that all together. But you now have stadia and they’re claiming that it doesn’t take up any space.

    I like how this solves nothing essentially. Especially at 1:06 where you switch from a TV to a LITERAL COMPUTER. Just amazes me

    How can a console change the visual effects of a game!
    If the game is made by a totally different company

    I want this idea to actually work. But so many issues going on with it that need to be fixed before I would even try it.

    1. The most important thing is I would have to know they won't be exiting the market and taking my whole library with them.

    2. Pricing on old games at full price is unacceptable.

    3. Make an option to download for offline play. Netflix has it why can't you?

    4. Fix performance issues.

    5. New games need to be seen released to the platform day 1 same as others.

    6. Next gen is coming. Your platform's performance can't even compete with current gen. Fix this quickly.

    7. If you can't make offline play possible make it so it can work with LTE data connections. Otherwise it's not truly gaming anywhere anytime.

    well here is your flaw if your running a game elsewhere and broadcasting the video to a tv the latency would be a terrible experience unless there is some magic connection that has instant video over vast distances… still what a huge waste of money because no one will buy this.. and please stop spamming adds its really annoying or at least make your add less cringy.

    I love the concept, however. It does sort of seem complicated when i try to think on how this could possibly work, and dont want to risk trying it wasting money.

    HERE IS HOW A PLAYSTATION 4 WORKS: You plug in the HDMI cable to the back of the TV and than you plug in power cord in the power outlet and that's it. You created this complicated mess and nobody wants to take out your own trash.
