Google Stadia now supports 4K resolution in Chrome

Google Stadia Pro users can now stream games from the service in 4K through the Chrome web browser. The update was quietly rolled out yesterday and now Google has confirmed it is available for all Stadia Pro subscribers. However, it will require a decent broadband connection and obviously a monitor that can display 4K resolution. Here’s Grace from Google with more details:

Hey everyone, we’ve recently finished rolling out some new features and updates for Stadia, including 4K on web! Please note that in order to experience 4K on your Chrome browser through Stadia, you’ll need to have the following:

  • “Best visual quality” selected in your Data Saver settings within the Stadia mobile app

  • A monitor with 4K resolution

  • A GPU capable of decoding VP9 in hardware

  • Internet connection of 35 Mbps or higher

We’re continuing to test and measure, so if you’re able to access 4K, please provide your feedback through the post-game session surveys. Happy gaming!

Today, it was confirmed that Relicta and The Turing Test would be available soon on the Stadia Store.

Relicta’s features include:

  • Mind-bending mechanics – alter gravity and magnetism at will.
  • Complex physical puzzles – combine your abilities in innovative ways to solve these physical riddles.
  • Lovingly detailed environments – each corner tells a story, each new step is a challenge.
  • Deep and enigmatic background story – Find clues and piece together the details about the investigation of the Relicta’s anomaly.
  • Immersive original soundtrack – slip into the soundscapes of a sci-fi psychological thriller.

The Turing Test will be familiar with puzzle fans as it has been around for a few years, most recently coming to Switch.

In our review for The Turing Test Dave wrote:

It’s easy to say that The Turing Test gets a passing grade. Lots of thought has clearly gone into how the story plays out, while the puzzles are designed to teach the player without overtly telling you how a new gameplay mechanic works. Little details at the end of each zone and side puzzle flesh out just what’s going on, while the puzzles will test your logical thinking. It’s not without its flaws, but it’s certainly worth a look at for those wanting to scratch that First Person Puzzle itch.
