As many people know the Google Stadia is one of the most popular video game streaming services right now as it relates to technology in general. While the deal for Stadia subscription is fairly reasonable with a price of $9.99 per month the service has some competition in Microsoft’s xCloud and Amazon’s new Luna streaming service. While the xCloud monthly subscription cost $14.99 per month Amazon’s Luna will be $5.99. Microsoft already has an advantage in the streaming wars because they just bought Bethesda Studios; also Amazon’s Luna will be accessible on more devices including Apple’s iPhone/iPad line. It has been reported that the Stadia streaming service is not useable on Chromecast at the moment. However, its been recently revealed that Chromecast will support Google Stadia during the first half of 2021. The official date that Chromecast users will be able to utilize Stadia on their devices has yet to be known.
For those who do not know Google Chromecast is a streaming media player that displays internet content to your television. For those who are interested in purchasing Chromecast they can do so for $35 while broadcasting content up to 1080p . It should also be noted that the Chromecast Ultra that can produce up to 4K quality resolution is only $70. While Google Chromecast is convenient for people to streaming videos from mobile devices to their TV’s more people are generally PC users when it comes to gaming in general. While streaming mobile games on television sounds like a very appealing concept its something that is likely to become overshadowed by upcoming game systems such as PS5 and Xbox Series X. But then again streaming in general is mostly likely going to be a bigger attraction throughout the 20’s decade than playing video games offline.
