Today Google announced their rumored Yeti streaming service, Project Stream, is now official. Project Stream is a service that will enable users to stream games using Google Chrome. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the first game supported on the new service.
“We’ve been working on Project Stream, a technical test to solve some of the biggest challenges of streaming.” stated by Product Manager, Catherine Hsiao “For this test, we’re going to push the limits with one of the most demanding applications for streaming—a blockbuster video game.”
“We’ve partnered with one of the most innovative and successful video game publishers, Ubisoft, to stream their soon-to-be-released Assassin’s Creed Odyssey® to your Chrome browser on a laptop or desktop. Starting on October 5, a limited number of participants will get to play the latest in this best-selling franchise at no charge for the duration of the Project Stream test.”
Google has stated that an internet speed of 25 megabits per second or higher is recommended. As part of Google‘s initiative to enter the gaming industry, how do you think the game streaming service will hold up?
