Google Stadia launched last year. In its current state only works on cabled and Wi-Fi internet connections on a limited number of devices. These include computers and laptops with Chrome installed and Google Pixel phones. The service currently doesn’t run on mobile networks.

Stadia is set to get some pretty serious competition later this year. Nvidia and Microsoft are expected to launch competing GeForce Now and Project xCloud streaming services respectively in the near future.
