Stadia’s Crowd Play will allow viewers to play with Streamers

YouTube content creators are encouraged to join the beta program

Google’s cloud gaming platform Stadia are including some Olympic Games in their new Crowd Play (beta) feature, as the Tokyo Olympic 2020 is on roll. Stadia lets players instantly play video games on compatible screens they already own. This time, Streamers can enjoy some selected games with their viewers while streaming. The platform encouraged gaming content creators on YouTube to join the beta program.

They have recently announced their Crowd Play feature. Crowd Play allows the player’s friends and viewers to jump into the game and play alongside them. This is much like Huya, one of the top live-streaming platforms in China, as it has a Play Together function as well. The viewers don’t need to download or own the game, just have to accept a cloud game invite from the streamers.
