Rumor: Google Is Setting Up Its Own Game Streaming Service

If it does, it may be through a new service that's now codenamed "Yeti". According to business mag The Information, the service is now codenamed Yeti, and could potentially either work through Chromecast or a new Google-developed piece of hardware. Similar to PlayStation Now and Nvidia's GeForce Now, subscribers would be able to stream games from cloud servers through a Google-made console, which would feature a hardware controller.
According to a report from The Information, Google is working on a game streaming service that could work either on Chromecast or a brand new console developed by the company.
Of course, Google has toyed with gaming for years, as The Information report points out, and failed to ever make a serious play to compete with Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo. This means Google must be taking the console approach quite seriously. Top-tier developers are also informed about the project, but it's not yet clear if they will allow streaming of already released games or develop brand new ones.
The project is being led by Google's product management VP Mario Queroz and engineering VP Majd Bakar, and their experience suggests some sort of hardware in development. Sony's version, which includes more than 600 games, costs $19.99 per month or $44.99 for three months.

Google has always been rumored to get more serious about the games industry. The mysterious hire of Phil Harrison (someone who has worked in Sony's Playstation division as well as Microsoft's Xbox division) is now starting to make sense and this could be a sign of a potential announcement at Google I/O 2018.
