Google's Stadia game-streaming platform kills downloads and lets you play anywhere

Onstage at GDC, Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced the company's latest big initiative, taking on the entire gaming industry with a live-streaming service called Stadia that will be launching this year. Pichai says that the service can be used on devices with a chrome browser and an internet connection. To Google that means Stadia will launch on desktops, laptops, TVs, tablets and phones.
