What is Cloud Gaming?

In the cloud gaming concept, a cloud gaming service provider, such as Google Stadia or GeForce Now, runs games on a remote server and streams the gameplay directly to your device. It could be a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or any such gadget. In this way, you don’t have to install different games on your device to be able to play them. You’ll just have to install one cloud gaming application (for the platform you are using) on your device and select the game of your choice to play it.

More importantly, since the games are processed on a cloud server, your device doesn’t need to have a high graphics processing power. This enables you to play even high-end PC games on devices such as mobile that don’t have enough graphics processing power to run PC and gaming console games. The cloud gaming platforms usually have monthly subscription pricing. Therefore, you can play any number of games without paying for them separately.

Unfortunately, there is no cloud gaming service available in the Indian market yet. And that is mainly because cloud gaming requires high-speed and low-latency internet, which isn’t accessible to a majority of the people in the country.
