Who else is surprised about Stadia offering 9 free premium AAA games?
I Certainly was, like a kid in a candy store. Naturally, the email was instantly opened and read. Learned Stadia is allowing everyone free entry to Stadia and 2 months free Stadia Pro. I decided to click on the link and sign-off and try it out for 2 months. Google couldn’t have chosen a better time than right now, while everyone’s home to share the Stadia and Stadia Pro platform.
Stadia is a Google-operated cloud-gaming company. It is advertised to be capable to stream video games with a resolution of up to 4K at 60 frames per second with a high – dynamic – range (HDR) support, to players around the globe via the various data centers of the business, if they use a high-speed Internet connection accordingly. It’s accessible on desktop computers, Pixel devices, Samsung, Razer, and Asus branded devices, as well as Chrome OS tablets and Chromecast via the Google Chrome web browser ( prefer using Brave Browser ).

What’s Stadia actually doing?
Stadia is a cloud gaming service that allows games to be purchased and played but doesn’t require a console or PC download.
That is because you play the game in real-time via various devices, including telephones, laptops, and televisions, but it actually runs somewhere else on a remote Stadia server. The gameplay video is transmitted over the Internet to your computer while controller control codes are sent to the other side of the screen.
Throughout the years, the main obstacle to many similar systems has been latency – the time it takes from when the controller thumbstick is being pushed or when you push one of the buttons on the computer.
However, where Stadia varies from other platforms such as Nvidia GeForce Now and PlayStation Now, its servers are scattered around the world in a wide variety of locations. This reduces the distance to stream between the player and the server.
Moreover, in place of your laptop, Google has created a dedicated Stadia controller that directly connects to the Internet over Wi-Fi (for at least playing at home). It sends control codes without the need to first send them to your computer, tablet or other connected devices. It reduces the delay in milliseconds and really matters in gaming.
Currently, on a cloud gaming network, the signal is transmitted to the receiving computer after a button has been pressed (currently by Bluetooth). It will later be read by the source computer, forwarded back to the receiver and then transferred to your TV (unless you are using a smartphone or tablet). Each such action takes time and can be vital to smooth play experiences, as the difference between a ballot avoidance or being shot in the face can be milliseconds.
The only way to work-latency wise-is to connect the controller wirelessly to a mobile device like a pixel phone while you play, because Stadia can make use of your mobile data to play. You can also connect it through a cable that reduces this additional latency. In reality, this is the only viable option for switching on mobile Wi-Fi access until “early 2020.”
