Google Stadia lets you play console-quality games on your smartphone or laptop

What is Google Stadia?

Google Stadia is a game streaming service that lets you play console-level titles on smartphones and laptops.

Normally, a games console renders graphics on the machine requiring powerful and expensive hardware.

Stadia renders the graphics on a Google computer and sends them to you over the internet, a bit like Netflix.

It means you can play games on really rubbish devices, including smartphones or the Google Chrome web browser.

The service costs 119, and includes a Chromecast Ultra and three months of access to Stadia Pro’s free library of games.

If you don’t want Stadia Pro, you can simply buy games from the Google Store.
