The recently released Googleâ€™s new game-streaming service allows you to play the latest cutting-edge game without using a gaming PC or game console.

You simply have to load it up with your Google’s Chrome Browser and you’ll be playing the new Assassin’s Creed in no time.
Project Stream, which was released earlier this month, is compatible with Windows and Mac computers and will work as long as you have a fast internet connection. Gamers who have the chance to test it out said that the service was impressive and were able to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on Chrome with little to no lag.
The service is available as a beta to US residents ages 17 and up until mid-January. Information as to how many gamers are accessing the service is not available so it is unclear how much stress the system is currently under and whether a larger rollout will affect gameplay quality.
Although Google is only offering one software title to play at this time, the technology clearly holds the potential to revolutionise the way we buy and run our games. Other companies that are currently working on the same technology include Nvidia, Electronic Arts, Microsoft and Sony.
