Real Money Stock of the Day Google is trying to totally reshape gaming. 

To an audience of developers and game enthusiasts, Alphabet's Google (GOOGL) - Get Alphabet Inc. Class A Report announced Stadia, a new gaming platform intended to revolutionize the way games are experienced. 

The service involves a wifi-connected controller and a lot of processing power -- made possible by a custom GPU that Google partnered with AMD to create -- as well as a vast array of data centers, and Google's own Youtube. 

The big idea is that gamers can click on a button or link directly from Youtube, and that will take them directly to a streamed version of the game -- on any device or browser. 

Google is up against some stiff competition, however, with Amazon (AMZN) - Get, Inc. Report and Microsoft (MSFT) - Get Microsoft Corporation Report also expected to roll out game streaming services. 

Google said it'll be out sometime in 2019, in the U.S., Canada, The U.K. and most of Europe.
