SANFRANCISCO (Reuters) – Alphabet Inc’s Google announced on Tuesday a video game streaming service dubbed Stadia that attempts to capitalise on the company’s cloud technology and global network of data centres.

The technology would allow users to play high-end games on their internet browser without having to wait for any content to be downloaded to their device.

Google unveiled the service during a keynote presentation in San Francisco at the Game Developers Conference, which is bringing together this week about 25,000 people who work in the video games industry.
