Google Stadia Adds a New 1440p Streaming Resolution Option In Chrome


Google has two more titles to Stadia store this morning. In addition to this, Google also announced that it has added a new 1440p streaming option for

This new resolution has been added for the users that do their gaming in Chrome. It will provide “players using a display with a resolution between 1440p and 4K” a streaming resolution better than 1080p. The 2560 x 1440 option falls under the “Best visual quality” tier, however, it requires your network and other hardware to meet 4K streaming requirements.

As of now, Google didn’t update the existing Stadia support documents to mention the new 1440p resolution. And so, it is still not clear how much data it consumes, with 1080p using 12.6GB/hour and 4K reaching 20GB/hour.

In addition to 4K requirements, you also need to have a valid Stadia Pro subscription. Also, VP9 hardware decoding must be supported to use this resolution. Overall, the option is geared towards those that do not have 4K monitors, while providing a more efficient setting for those that do.
