Starting this week, Google would be implementing a feature that will allow you to start a game in the cloud directly from the search results. At the moment, the feature is available only to a limited number of users.
With this new feature, when users search for a supported cloud game on Google Search, they will be able to see the “Play” button right under the description of the game. By clicking on it, users will be prompted to log in to one of the available services, which include Google Stadia, Amazon Luna, Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now.
During the testing phase, not all games in the cloud can be launched in this way. It’s also not yet clear when Google plans to make the new feature public.
Network sources say that the “Play” button can periodically appear and disappear for the same users. This means that the search giant is testing the feature and may want to gauge how users react to it. Official representatives of Google have not yet commented on this issue.
