The initial idea for Google Stadia begins to take shape months after its launch. This new video game system should be as free as possible with the least amount of cables, but maintaining the quality of the game.
Starting this week, the Google Stadia controller will be able to free itself from the cables that tied it to the computer. The company thus fulfills those that it promised from the beginning that we could forget about the USB-C cable and use the computer’s ports for other uses while playing one of the titles that this platform currently offers.
This new functionality allows us to connect the gamepad to the WiFi network , just like the computer, the TV or the Chromecast device. With this, it will be easier to go from playing on television to playing on the computer.
Remember that Stadia games are played in large remote centers so it is not necessary to have a powerful computer to participate in the most demanding games. However, the connection is a fundamental part so that latency is not suffered in the game and the communication between our devices and Google centers is good.
If we are going to bet on the WiFi network, it is best to use the 5 GHz network, although we may need to continue using the cable to achieve the best game quality and not saturate the network. Even so, these improvements are giving greater value to this new type of gaming platform that was baptized long ago as the future of the video game sector.
It is not the only news to come this month. A few days ago it was known that you could already capture and record videos of the games on Android with the Stadia command and Google would be working on a chat for this video game platform.
In addition, each month new titles arrive in the Stadia catalog, at the end of April they announced the incorporation of Jedi Fallen Order based on the Star Wars universe and FIFA the soccer video game par excellence.
