How Google Fiber and Doom 2016 Inspired Stadia

Google Stadia

Stadia is Google’s newest pet project (let’s hope it doesn’t get axed after the first year) and the Califonia-based multi-continental conglomerate is promising industry-shifting ideas with its new Game-streaming platform.

Talk about Stadia — then Project Stream– have been loud since the company first tested one-of-kind AAA game played with nothing but a Chromebook, Gamepad and an internet connection.

Those that were lucky enough to test out Stadia praised the idea and execution but lament limited access to Gigabit internet–Project Stream required at least 25mb/s internet speeds — as one of the issues that would work against the platform.

However, back then, Google was only showing off what can only be described as a prototype and as it would turn out, the final iteration was much more inclusive.

Stadia is slated to launch on the 19th and if you’ve been following itschromeos, we’ve extensively covered some interesting info about Google’s Game Streaming Service.

I live, breath, and dream technology. I've only known myself to push the boundaries on what's possible in my mental scope in relation to technology. And having been a writer for the good part of the past three years (covering varying subjects on the major mobile platforms), No place has ever felt more like home than Chrome OS. And as you may know, Chrome OS is ushering us into a future of the unknown and I'm here to help in the process of easing the way into that future via ItsChromeOS.
