Google reportedly working on a gaming streaming service, 'Yeti'

Google (Company) Quick Facts | Ubergizmo Report: Google developing a game streaming service codenamed 'Yeti' with console hardware

Codenamed Yeti, the service would deliver playable titles via the internet to gamers, but beyond that we aren't sure about much. The project was originally created to work through Chromecast, but The Information also hints that Google has experimented with building a game console and controller purchasable specifically for using the service.

There's a very good chance that this time next year you'll be playing games on Google's new game streaming service - code-named "Yeti" - that's now in development. This means Google must be taking the console approach quite seriously. Brought on as a VP and GM in Google's hardware business who will report directly to Rick Osterloh, he has experience building consoles at both Sony and Microsoft.

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

First, Google could allow the game service to be accessed through its own Chromecast digital media players, meaning all players need is an online access point and a controller (maybe even their remotes?) to take part.

Google has reportedly been talking to "top-tier gaming developers" regarding its plans.

Jones , who is famed for his psychological banter, said: "I'm excited by our prospects, particularly as we have been written off". Two French players, Matthieu Jalibert and Antoine Dupont , suffered serious knee injuries; their tournaments are probably over.

Google's YouTube website increased its video game content after Amazon.com acquired the popular Twitch platform for $970 million in 2014. Microsoft launched Mixer past year.

Last month, Google hired Microsoft and Sony gaming veteran Phil Harrison to head an as yet undisclosed division, giving weight to the idea that Google is once again targeting the games industry.

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.

While leveraging Android titles offers a enormous ready-made gaming universe, the report says Google is looking to strike exclusive deals with developers for the new cloud service.
