Google Search: The feature makes cloud gaming even more convenient

Fight aliens as the Master Chief in “Halo Infinite” or traverse the game world of “Forza Horizon 5” in a sports car – if you want to play the latest blockbuster games, but don’t have a current console or gaming PC . – you can go to cloud access game services. With XBOX Cloud Gaming, Nvidia GeForceNow and Co. it is possible to play current titles through the browser. The only requirement: a sufficiently fast Internet connection. Launching a game through cloud gaming is now even easier. Internet giant Google is equipping its search engine with a new feature.

The PG12 from Austrian Audio wants to bring the best hi-fi sound to the gaming world. IMTEST shows how well this works.

Google search with play button

I like the online website”the edge” informed, it is enough to enter the name of the game through Google search. If this game is part of a cloud gaming service, a play button will appear below the name. If you click on it, you will land directly on the website of the respective provider and can start the game. Twitter user “@BryantChappel” shows what that looks like in a post. In a few seconds, open the game “Halo Infinite” comfortably through the browser:

Multiple services supported

This makes it clear that Google not only supports its in-house Stadia service, but also what the competition offers. Bryant Chappell assumes that Amazon Luna, Xbox Cloud Gaming, and Nvidia GeForce Now will be supported. The services already include hundreds of titles from different genres.

Play button not yet for everyone

According to The Verge, Google is still rolling out the new feature. That means it’s not available everywhere yet. In any case, the button did not appear in a brief test with various titles such as “Halo: Infinite” and “Forza Horizon 5”. It is currently unclear when the play button will arrive in Germany.
