Last year, Google ran a small test on its Chrome browser. This test enabled gamers to stream games using the browser, validating several speculations that Google is looking to get into video game streaming. In fact, in the coming days of this month, Google is expected to unveil more of their plans at Game Developers Conference 2019 (GDC) and leading up to the event, we might have an idea of what to expect.
According to a new report, it appears that Google is adding support for the Nintendo Switch controllers to its Chrome browser. What does this mean? This means that in theory, you should be able to play games through Chrome using your Nintendo Switch controllers if you prefer.
Chrome was previously used by Google to showcase its game streaming technology where gamers were able to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey through the browser, which we have to say was a pretty remarkable feat. Now, the addition of Switch controllers means that Google expects to have more games that can be streamed, although whether or not these games include Nintendo titles remains to be seen.
Hopefully, the company will have more details to share at GDC which will be kicking off on Monday, March 18th and will run through till Friday, March 22nd, 2019.
