Tech giant Google’s game streaming platform Stadia will soon offer the ability to live stream games directly to YouTube. According to 9to5Google, the feature seemed to be rolling out, and some users also spotted the ability to link a YouTube account to Stadia accounts, but not the ability to stream yet.
Currently, it’s not yet clear if it would be able to stream in 4K, as Stadia originally promised. One would also likely need Stadia Pro subscription-style 4K gameplay at $9.99 per month.
To use the new feature, you still need to configure a few things, like the stream title, privacy options, and audience age group, before you get started. Much like setting up a standard YouTube live stream.
Recently, Google announced a new Stadia experience that allows users to play games on mobile devices over 4G and 5G cellular networks. Previously, subscribers could only use the game streaming service on Android devices when connected to a stable Wi-Fi network.
Google has also started rolling out a new messaging system on the Stadia Cloud gaming service, allowing users to send text messages between friends.
