Streaming movies and television series online are all fine. But streaming video games online has always been a cool trend for every gamer. But playing high-end games on PC has a lot of barriers in them. Such as you need a powerful machine to support the game. A graphics card which can process all the stunning and real-life graphics. And obviously, all this comes with a huge price tag on them.
So, to lower this price burden, and to get into the gaming business. Google’s project stream will let you play high-end games on Google Chrome. Starting from October 5. So because of this, you can play a high-end game Assassin’s Creed Odyssey simply inside your Google Chrome Window.
According to the company blog, they want to push the limits beyond 4k video streaming to something even more challenging. As this step will let video game players play high-quality games anywhere through a simple Google Chrome browser tab.
Isn’t this too good to be true? But undoubtedly it is. As the project stream is definitely happening because Google has roped in Ubisoft for the trial run of the service. And selected participants in this initial beta programme will not have to pay anything to test the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey game. So, it is clear that Google is still testing the technology to improve it for the users.
But Google is not the first company to come up with such idea of streaming games. As earlier services like NVIDIA and Sony have attempted similar remote-game streaming services in the form of GeForce Now and PlayStation Now, respectively.
And the way Project Streamworks is that it streams gameplay from a computer in the cloud while your PC sends the keyboard and mouse commands. So, conceptually this is nothing new, but Google promises extremely low latency and high-fidelity graphics.
So, now it is to wait and watch if Google can really stream AAA games at 60 frames at a minimum of 1920×1080 pixel resolution all inside a Google Chrome tab. Right now, this Project is only open for US residents who have a home internet connection. And you have to be 17 years or older to participate. Also, you need a desktop or laptop PC with access to the desktop version of Google Chrome, such as any PC running Windows 10, macOS, or Linux, or a Chromebook running Chrome OS.
