Google has announced the second Stadia Connect event for August 19th where it will be revealing some more Stadia details. The event was held for the first time earlier this year where Google Stadia game streaming service unveiled. We already know different details about the service but it seems like Google has at least a few more to share ahead of the public release in November.
In an official tweet, Google further revealed that Stadia will be available for hands-on experience at Gamescom 2019 starting August 20th. The hands-on experience will be kicked off once the Stadia Connect gets over which will be live-streamed for everyone to watch. The live stream will be available on YouTube and if you are interested, you can also set a reminder for the same.
Let’s do it again. On 8/19, #StadiaConnect is back and bigger than ever. Tune in at 10AM PDT / 7PM CEST for all the details - then come get hands-on with the future of gaming for yourself at our #Gamescom booth! https://t.co/dKmKakQeQp pic.twitter.com/H0ILSxki8r— Stadia (@GoogleStadia) August 6, 2019
The video description mentions, “From revealing brand-new titles to going behind-the-scenes with our partners, we can’t wait to show what Stadia has in store for you.” This is our only clue for now to get an idea about what kind of announcements to expect from the event. One thing is confirmed that we will hear about new gaming titles that will be playable through the service.
For the uninitiated ones, Google Stadia is a service that will allow users to stream video games just like they stream TV shows and movies. It means users will not have to spend on dedicated gaming hardware to play games. The service will work on all sorts of devices including laptops, PCs, smartphones, tablets, and even smart TVs. It will offer the ability to pause the gameplay on one device and resume on another. But as you would expect, streaming video games will definitely cost you a lot of internet data, especially if you wish to do so in the highest quality available.
