Google Stadia: What are the pros and cons of the new service?

StadiaΗ Google Stadia, new streaming game service the company releases today and shows what the future of gaming will be, not based on exact consoles, but on cloud. But she will succeed Google to prevail?

The Sony PlayStation enables gamers to stream on PCs and PS4, while the Microsoft Project xCloud (beta test) allows streaming to Appliances Android. It will be released in 2020.

On the other hand, Google's Stadia service works on any browser Chrome, on selected phones pixel Android and on Google's Chromecast Ultra. You pay 9.99 dollars a month to run the games on cloud and then stream whatever device you want to play.

Note that you have to buy each game separately. The default options are 22. Many of them are old, but some are very popular games, such as "Red Dead Redemption 2" and "Destiny 2".

If you give $ 129, you get the Google Stadia controller, a Chromecast Ultra for your TV, and three months of Stadia Pro, with which you stream 4K and you can play for free.

Here are the pros and cons of the new Stadia service:

What are the positive elements?

A trial has shown that the Stadia service offers high resolution and Great graphics.

Once you install it application and you enter a username, you will be able to buy games. It's not very cheap, although there are some discounts if you opt for the Stadia Pro subscription. One available free version, which offers streaming up to 1080p instead of 4K. In addition, it does not include free games or discounts.

One of the benefits of Stadia is that within seconds one can start playing either on a Pixel phone, either on a laptop or on the TV (according to tests). It didn't take long for game updates, as is the case with PS4. Why; Why it's all done in the Google cloud. So users can play at any time. The toys are there.

However, as far as streaming is concerned, the possibility of a drop in quality during the game or even an unexpected interruption is very likely. This is not often the case on an Xbox or a PS4.

As for the controller, tests have shown that they are enough handy (even if you keep it for many hours) and battery it has a long life. Also, its connection to various devices is a lot easy. According to Google, will soon be working wirelessly.


The Stadia software is also good. Gamers can see a list that shows if their friends are online and a list of people they've recently played with.

What are the disadvantages?

There are also concerns about the Stadia service. As we said above, the service currently offers 22 games. Soon there will be more options. However, we cannot know if Google will continue to attract publishers for the release of new games on Stadia. This will largely depend on the number of users service.

Still, users have not no physical copy of the game. This means that if Google decides to terminate the Stadia service or if the user cancels their subscription, loses everything.

Furthermore, it is not possible to create a group, so you can't pick some friends to play with. At the moment, you can play with other unknown people but not create your own group. Also, if the Stadia service does not attract many gamers you will not be able to play games that other people need.

Another downside is that to play mobile games right now you have to have one of the following models: Pixel 2, Pixel 3, Pixel 3a or Pixel 4. In the future, the service will be available to iPhone and other devices Android. However, at the moment, the Stadia app for iPhone and other Android phones only allows for the management and purchase of games. The good news is that you can play in Chrome on most computers or a Chromecast Ultra on your TV.

In addition, as it is streaming, you must have very good internet connection before you can play on 4K.

Google Stadia gives a picture of what gaming will look like in the future. However, it is too early to know how all this will go. All that's left is to see the response of the world and how Google will fix the problems mentioned above and enhance its new service.
