Mountain View Google declares its foray into the business of playing video games off the net to have failed. The Internet giant is discontinuing its games streaming service Stadia.
With such offers, the video games do not run on PCs or consoles of the users, but on servers of the providers on the Internet and are controlled with the help of fast lines. The solutions are considered by many experts to be the future of the gaming industry.
With Stadia, Google was a pioneer in such services, which are also available from Microsoft with the Xbox gaming platform and the graphics card specialist Nvidia, among others. Stadia has not received enough popularity from users, Google admitted in a blog post on Thursday.
Customers will be able to use their games until January 18 next year and will be reimbursed for hardware and software expenses.
