Google are reportedly developing a subscription-based game streaming service

Phil Harrison on Twitter:

The project, codenamed "Yeti", would let users subscribe to a gaming library that can be used to stream games either over the internet or through a remote device, the report claims. According to business mag The Information, the service is now codenamed Yeti, and could potentially either work through Chromecast or a new Google-developed piece of hardware. It would seem that gamers aren't really interested in paying for a streaming service where cloud-based gaming is the only hook, so Google will need to figure out an angle it can use to sell gamers on Yeti.

A new report suggests that Google are getting into the game business with a new streaming service. It's now under development, under the code name Yeti, and that Google is putting quite a bit of investment into it.

The report pointed out that Google has previously pursued gaming projects, however the company failed to follow through.

An expansion of the Made by Google lineup, the two-year old Yeti project is led by VPs Mario Queiroz and Majd Bakar.

Google wants to get Yeti up and running in a way that will allow users to stream games straight to their Chromecast or Android TV box.

Ozone layers continues to thin
That led to governments phasing out the CFCs , which led to the first results of healing of the ozone shield above the Antarctic. That is the case this year and at the moment there is significant ozone depletion over northern Ireland and Scotland.

In the meantime, Google has been in discussion with "top-tier gaming developers". Harrison also worked for Microsoft Corp's Xbox group for three years.

Recent research showed that the video game market raked in just over $108 billion throughout 2017.

For this reported console, Google's hire of Phil Harrison, a veteran in the video game industry, makes a lot of sense.

We've reached out to Google for a comment on the existence of the games console and will update this article when we hear back.

It's unclear whether Google would focus exclusively on streaming Android games to a consumer's television, as playing Android games on a big screen is already relatively easy to do with existing casting and mirroring technology.
