At GDC 2019, Google announced the future of gaming in the form of Stadia, a next-generation gaming platform for playing high-quality games anywhere without requiring a box, updates or downloads. Stadia is a cloud gaming service that gives gamers the freedom to play across multiple devices, including laptops and desktop computers, as well as selected phones and tablets with a high-speed Internet connection.

Stadia offers up to 4K HDR at 60 FPS, providing players with high-quality graphics and smooth gaming experiences. With this new gaming platform, Google is introducing new ways for people to play their favorite games with YouTube and beyond, noting that users will be able to "go from watching a video to playing a game in seconds."
