Stadia integration with the Google Assistant kicks off with the ability to launch games on Chrome OS and Android
Historically, mentioning a game to Google's Assistant was most likely to meet with relevant search results and not much more. Now, however, it is gaining the ability to produce the actual title in question. This is thanks to Stadia, the Mountain View giant's cloud service.
Some Assistant users who also have this app on their Chromebook or Android device have noticed that the former can initialize the latter in response to commands that involve playing titles, so long as they are already owned by the account in question.
This level of cross-app integration has been exclusive to the Chromecast Ultra since Stadia's inception. Now, however, it is rolling out to many more devices on different platforms. Furthermore, Google has been said to have plans to take these new voice-assistant functions further. For example, it intends to allow the user to summon YouTube walkthroughs during gameplay as and when the user wishes.
