It will also help to stream games on Google Chrome browser, on TVs via Chromecast, and on Pixel devices. Meanwhile, Google is making its partnership with YouTube and some other gaming streaming websites like Twitch to enhance its game streaming service.
At the event, Google showcases some of the features of Stadia out of which it shows that users can easily play the game while watching the live streaming of the game on YouTube just by clicking on the ‘Play Now’ button at the bottom.
