Are you one of those lucky (or unfortunate) people who owns a Google Stadia? Well, prepare yourself for some 4K streaming!
Taken from Engadget … Google is finally fulfilling a key promise for Stadia by rolling out 4K gaming on the web, according to 9to5Google and several Reddit users. You’ll need a Stadia Pro subscription and fast internet connection to use the feature, with Google specifying a minimum “excellent” connection over 35Mbps. However, 9to5Google reports that it was able to get 4K working with “good” and even “OK” internet speeds.
Until now, the only way to access 4K gaming was by using a Chromecast Ultra with a television. If it’s working on the web, you should see a noticeable bump in quality. You can confirm it by opening the in-game menu (hit shift-tab or use the Stadia button on your controller), where you should see a green 4K icon under “data usage.”
4K streaming has been a thorny issue for Stadia. As Engadget noted last month, a key part of Google’s pitch was that Stadia could hit 4K at 60 fps. However, that resolution isn’t supported on key games like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Destiny 2, something that Google didn’t make clear. Instead, players had to figure out which titles supported 4K for themselves. Also, games that do support 4K appear to be running at a lower resolution than native 4K games on a PC.
