Google Launches a New Project Which Allows Users to Stream Games via Chrome

By October 2nd, 2018 AT 3:42 PM

Google is known for launching some exciting projects in the past and the same continues with Project Stream. With this new project, Google is aiming to solve the issues around interactive video streaming by allowing users to stream full video games on Chrome. “We’ve been working on ‘Project Stream’, a technical test to solve some of the biggest challenges of streaming. For this test, we’re going to push the limits with one of the most demanding applications for streaming a blockbuster video game,” Catherine Hsiao, Product Manager, Google, wrote in a blog post late on Monday.

The Internet giant is working to publicly test “Project Stream” with a limited number of participants on October 5 by letting them play “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey” for free in its Chrome browser.

“The idea of streaming such graphically-rich content that requires near-instant interaction between the game controller and the graphics on the screen poses a number of challenges.

“When streaming TV or movies, consumers are comfortable with a few seconds of buffering at the start, but streaming high-quality games requires latency measured in milliseconds, with no graphics degradation,” Hsiao added.

According to Google developers, the beta test is aimed at pushing the limits of the programme. The streaming-game space includes other players such as Sony with its PlayStation Now. However, it has not exactly solved the lag issue yet.
