Google has released even more information about its cloud gaming service Stadia today. It will be able to run 4K 60FPS and 5.1 Surround Sound with a connection of at least 35 mbps (millabytes per second is a unit that measures the speed of your internet connection). At launch later this year in November, the service will be eligible on TV’s, desktops, laptops, tablets, and Pixel phones starting with the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, and 3A and 3A XL and, eventually, on other smartphones. The service will do this with no downloads, no patches, and no installs at all. You won’t need a big, bulky console such as an Xbox One X or a PS4, since the storage will come from Google’s datacenters. You wil need a controller or a mouse and a keyboard to play Stadia.
