Stadia is a cloud gaming subscription service operated by multinational technology company Google. It is capable of streaming video games in 4K resolution at 60 frames per second, with support for high-dynamic-range, to players via the company’s numerous data centers across the globe. It will be accessible through the company's Google Chrome web browser.
The service’s integration with YouTube, and its state share feature which allows viewers of a Stadia stream to launch a game on the service on the same save state as the streamer, has been used as a selling point for the service. It is compatible with HID class USB controllers, though a proprietary controller manufactured by Google with a direct Wi-Fi link to data centers will be made available alongside the service.
