As the gaming landscape slowly opens a new door to cloud game streaming, Google Stadia users will finally have the chance to do live streaming.
Initial reports from 9to5Google show that they are planning to roll out the feature this week. This is in addition to their latest stream this month that they are including new games this month in their Stadia roster.
The Verge also confirmed recently that the feature could be available today, December 8.
Crowd Play And Crowd Choice In Action
In addition to the direct live streaming support off YouTube, we can also see these two Stadia features that have been revealed this year.
Last July, some content creators were given exclusive access to try these features out. Crowd Play allows viewers to play with their favorite streamers bringing live interaction to a whole new level.

Crowd Choice lets viewers vote on which outcome the streamer will get to experience during his game. Last September, Eurogamer reported that the feature has been rolled out to Stadia. Additionally, the feature has also been tested in Baldur’s Gate 3.
Stadia-exclusive Outcasters Debuts This Month
Along with the new games that they have announced includes their exclusive combat game called Outcasters.
Android Police was able to get their hands on the game this month and the overall gameplay vibe seems to be similar to Fall Guys. Sunny Cloud Gaming also shared some YouTube footage as well to give you a better idea.
Can Google Compete Against Next-Gen Consoles?
With Cyberpunk 2077 coming out in a few days, this could be the ultimate challenge for Stadia if it can deliver high-quality gaming experience to its users. The only downside of Stadia is that it requires users to have a fast internet connection for a smooth gaming experience.
If Google Stadia succeeds with providing great experiences with AAA game titles then it may become a worthy competitor against Sony and Microsoft’s consoles.
