Google Stadia still has a long way to go

Despite already showing great improvements since it was launched, Google’s cloud gaming service will still have to overcome several barriers to become a real option for the millions of gamers all around the world. So far, it has several limitations both in compatible devices and in the resolution available for your games.

For example, through the browser on the computer, it supports at most one HD resolution (720p), when the ideal would be at least 1080p (Full HD). Still, the Google team is working hard to ensure the best possible gaming experience, with the highest resolution. Therefore, they promise that by the end of the year they will be able to offer 4K resolution on some of the platforms.

Another of the great challenges will be the expansion to more markets, which will result in a huge stress on your servers. But in order to achieve the desired impact, expansion to many more countries will be an essential factor.
