Google rolls out YouTube live streaming and Crowd Play testing.
YouTube live streaming and Crowd Play are long-awaited features that the Stadia community have been patiently waiting for. With Crowd Play and Crowd Choice releasing in September with Dead By Daylight.
Now when Google Stadia was first announced during the GDC 2019, two of the features that were shown of were YouTube live streaming and Crowd Play, being able to stream games from Stadia to YouTube easily, with the ability to get your viewers involved, though when Stadia launched these features where missing.
However, 8 months down the line it finally seems that we are getting an early glimpse of these features.
