The Google Stadia uses Chromecast protocol so you can stream the games over your laptop, desktop, tablet, smartphone, or TV. So you can game just about anywhere, and there’s no need to buy physical discs anymore. All you need is a really fast internet connection and you can load up the games from Google Stadia’s new beefy cloud network.
