Google may soon allow players to launch games from search results via Stadia ...

Google is apparently working on a new feature that would allow players to launch games from Google search results using Stadias cloud services.

Bryant Chappel, the game's creator, discovered the upgrade when Google searched for Control. Chappel posted a video showing a new option on the right side of the screen: Play now.

Stream Control Ultimate Edition is a free download, so read the title of the game. Players may then choose to start the game immediately through Stadia, although a Stadia subscription is still required. Chappel chooses the play option, which brings him to a Stadia loading screen before starting the game right from Chrome.

The Google search engine has released a new feature for cloud gaming platforms. Players may now launch a game directly from the search results using @GoogleStadia.

Chappel also shared screenshots of other cloud services that are available for different games. Amazon Luna, Xbox Cloud Gaming, and GeForce Now appear to be options for some, but not all, games, depending on platform availability and the publisher's choice, according to additional screenshots from Chappel. The feature appears to be still in development or only available for a few individuals or regions.

Cloud gaming is designed to make the most recent games accessible to players who do not have the hardware to run them at their intended settings. Services like Stadia stream the game to players consoles, PCs, and mobile devices, although the upfront cost for consumers is usually less than that for a console or gaming PC.
