Now Google might make a game console and game-streaming service

The report is from Paywalled site The Information, which says that the service would be subscription based and playable either on a new Google console, or on Chromecast. According to some people who know about the project, the code name of the service is "Yeti" and with it, Google would seek to enter fully into the video game streaming industry. Google has started and cancelled gaming projects in the past, and right now there's no telling if this ever sees a release.

Companies such as Sony and Nvidia have tried to make game streaming a thing for years, so gamers can skip the download process entirely and instead stream games from the cloud. If the unnamed sources are to be believed, the search giant is hard at work on its very own game streaming service.

PlayStation Now lets you stream PlayStation games, Xbox GamePass subscribers have access to Xbox games, and GeForce Now enables you to stream your entire collection of PC games on Steam. Sony has its own exclusive games, and Xbox has their own. The company has tested several versions of the tech so far and is said to be targeting "top tier" gaming developers.

The service costs $19.99 (£12.99) a month or $44.99 for three months, which is a pretty decent deal if your gaming budget limits you to one new title every couple of months. While you do get some free games along with the subscription, you still have to purchase most of the games.

There's been a lot of talk over the years about Google considering an entry into the console market.

The Information reports that the service has been in development for over two years, and almost saw the light of day over the holidays.

The move wouldn't be the first time Google has expressed interest in the gaming business.

Given how hyper competitive and hard it is to break into the video game industry, it's interesting that Google views now as the appropriate time to jump into the space.
