Google is currently releasing an update to Google search that should allow gamers to stream video games even faster.
If, like many, you search for movies or music in Google search, you must have noticed that Google offers you a section in the results with the name of the platforms on which the specified movie or specified music is available. This feature, quite useful for better job search of your choice across platforms, will now also work for video games in the cloud.

Google search opens up for cloud gaming
Some users may have noticed that when they searched for the game on the most popular search engine, the result now showed multiple platform options. It seems to work especially now in the Anglo-Saxon countries, which does not seem to be the case in France yet.
The “Play” button next to the name of your search will directly launch the game on the selected service. Google search currently recognizes 4 different platforms: Amazon Luna, Nvidia GeForce Now, Xbox Cloud Gaming, and of course the home platform Stadia.
The icing on the cake is that Google also indicates when the game you’re looking for is available for free, such as Fortnite. Journalist Tom Warren (The Verge) explains:
This is amazing. Google will let you launch Stadia, Amazon Luna, Xbox Cloud Gaming, and Nvidia GeForce Now games right from the search results. The power and simplicity of cloud gaming in action.
In short, cloud gaming is taking up more and more space.
