In order to rapidly share games with friends, Stadia has introduced “Party Stream.”

With Party Stream, a simple tool for sharing your screen with friends, and upgrades to its YouTube streams, Google Stadia is increasing its live streaming capabilities.

The ability to stream your gaming to YouTube straight from Google’s servers without the need for specialized hardware or software on your end is one of the remarkable features of Stadia. Stadia’s YouTube connection enables streaming your games to others easier than ever before, even while you don’t have better capabilities like presenting your camera feed or adding overlays.

Our APK Insight team has been monitoring a new Stadia feature in recent weeks that would enable you to stream your games to your friends without ever using a platform like YouTube. Instead, you’ll be able to let your friends watch your stream directly from the Stadia app as a spectator.

This week, all gamers will be able to use Stadia’s new Party Stream functionality, as was announced on XDA-Developers today and confirmed to us by Google. Simply said, you can allow others to watch your stream if you’re in a Stadia party with them. Even better, spectators can only watch one stream at a time but any number of party members (up to Stadia’s party limit of 10) can share their feed simultaneously.

You may still utilize voice chat to communicate with everyone in the party while watching, as well as send texts and emoji reactions to the video. The gamers who are broadcasting will similarly receive screen notifications when friends join or leave the live, as well as new messages and reactions.

Additionally, Stadia is introducing a useful upgrade to its current YouTube support. Since its debut, the integrated YouTube streaming has added support for 4K videos, including HDR content where available.

Stadia is now addressing a common issue that streamers have. When you were playing a game, Stadia used to make a YouTube livestream just for that game. You would need to start a new stream with a different URL if you wanted to switch games.

Starting this week, Stadia will be able to simply resume livestreaming when a new game is launched, preserving both the URL and the number of watchers for your YouTube video. This adjustment is a blessing for someone who has used Stadia to play numerous Jackbox Party Pack games online with pals.

Overall, it’s nice to see Google continue to highlight livestreaming as one of Stadia’s core strengths, especially given that the most of other cloud gaming platforms (with the exception of Amazon Luna) don’t provide anything comparable.

The above-mentioned screenshots of Stadia’s Party Stream in operation have been updated by Google. The animations that were first displayed were mock-up representations created with artistic license and did not accurately represent Stadia’s feature set or game library.
