When Google first announced Google Stadia they promised gamers a seamless relationship between itself and YouTube. They claimed you could click on a YouTube ad for a game offered on Google Stadia and begin playing the game within seconds. Not only that, but YouTube creators would be able to invite their viewers to join their game instantly and, more importantly, creators would be able to stream their Stadia games to their YouTube channel with just the push of a button.
Sadly, none of what Google promised was actually offered when Stadia first launched in November of last year understandably angering many. Luckily, it looks like Google is finally making good on it’s promise.
According to 9to5Google, you’ll be able to stream your games to YouTube tomorrow. But before you can stream directly to YouTube you’ll need to give your stream a title and tweak the settings. There is no news yet on whether or not you’ll be able to stream in 4k as Google promised but we’re willing to bet you’ll need to pay the $9.99 a month subscription for Stadia Pro to do that.
With games like Cyberpunk 2077 pushing not only next-gen consoles but gaming PCs to their limits, Stadia offers a way around this and so this announcement couldn’t come at a better time, especially for streamers and creators alike.
