During the broadcast of Stadia shared today, Google has announced the simple requirements that we must meet to use its new platform for games in the cloud. As was previously clear, it will be necessary to have an abnormally fast connection, but we must worry about having at least 5 mbps to play.
With less than 10 mbps, we can play at 720p with sound stereo. We are recommended to have at least 10 mbps, which will allow us to reach 1080p resolution with HDR and 5.1 sound. If your connection is at least 35 mbps, then we can play our games at 4K, HDR, at 60 FPS and with 5.1 surround sound with our subscription to Stadia Pro, the platform’s main monetization channel. You can make a connection test from the official website of Stadia to see how you will play.
On the other hand, to play we need a television with an internet connection, laptop, computer or Pixel 3 or 3a device, and a control of our choice. The PS4 and Xbox One controls are compatible, but we also have our own remote control that will be sold separately or in the founder edition, which can now be reserved.
The Stadia control has dimensions of 163 mm x 105 mm x 65 mm and a weight of 268 grams, with a 3.5 mm jack for audio and a USB-C port. It has dual broadband WiFi connectivity (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) and low blueTooth (4.2). Finally, it is said that it will work with batteries. And what about the command? In addition to the usual arrangement, we have a Google button that we can activate and use with our microphone, as well as another one for image and video capture.
