This evening, Google will pull back the curtain on its new games streaming platform, Google Stadia.
We’re expecting a conference later today to unveil more information about pricing, games and launch details for Google’s game streaming service.
Tonight’s event is dubbed Google Stadia Connect and lays the foundations for the company’s big new move into gaming ahead of E3 – the biggest gaming expo of the year.
If you’re not caught up, Google Stadia is basically Netflix for video games, in a sense – an opt-in service that will allow you to stream games from your laptop, phone, TV or whatever else has an internet connection.
Currently, we don’t know how much the service will cost or what games will be available at launch – but we’re expecting to find out more soon.
Google Stadia Connect – When is it, how to watch
Connect will go live later today – Thursday, June 6.
The start time is 5pm BST (that’s 9am PT, 12pm ET or 6pm CEST)

Google Stadia Connect – Leaks
A report from Kotaku that was published this week leaks a few interesting features about the future of Destiny 2 and the implications that will have for the game appearing on various platforms.
According to the report, Destiny 2 is set to be one of the major launch titles for Google’s upcoming streaming service and game-changing on-demand platform Stadia, and that Bungie’s game will add cross-save support in order to help players migrate to the Google platform.
“What we’ve heard from five sources, a combination of plugged-in tipsters and developers, is that Destiny 2 will be one of the big games available on Google’s new streaming platform,” notes Kotaku with a lot of confidence.
Kotaku also notes that Ubisoft will be supporting Stadia: “We also expect Ghost Recon Breakpoint and a few other big games to get announced for Stadia.” There’s no source or clarification on that statement, though.
Previously, we’ve seen Google announce that we’ll be seeing Doom Eternal make its way to Stadia too, with the company assuring us that it will run at 4K resolution with HDR color at 60 fps. Lofty goals!
