Moving beyond its claim to fame as an internet search engine, Google has also made its presence felt in the fields such as robotics, mapping, video broadcasting, telecoms, advertising, and a lot more. Now, the search giant is looking to step into another area: video gaming. Google is developing a subscription based games streaming service which may work either on its Chromecast or maybe a brand new Google console, based on a report from The Information. The project, dubbed Yeti, would seemingly allows users to stream and play video games in real time, which is in fact running on Google’s distant cloud servers somewhere else in the world.
The video game has been communicated to the consumer’s device over the internet, whereas the control codes from a game controller are shipped at the other direction. Utilizing this service, the users do not have to download video games or even purchase discs. Users will be capable to enjoy a massive quantity of power with a net connected device like phones, tablets or televisions that may be available directly, for instance, through Google’s Chromecast cost effective media player, that is far less expensive than a high end system or a PC. Seemingly, the Google Yeti Streaming service has allegedly been in development for a couple of years.
In addition, the search giant is testing itself in the gaming world with the Google Android focused Google Play Games service in addition to with YouTube Gaming. If Google ends up releasing its Yeti streaming service, the search giant may be taking a massive step to establish itself in the gaming console market and take on rivals, like Sony or even Nintendo.
