So what is Google aiming for by expanding its Stadia team? Well, the job posting reveals a few details, if not a lot, in this regard. The job description section of the list shows that the tech giant aims to further expand the availability of its cloud-based game streaming service, i.e. Stadia. To give you a quick overview, Stadia is already available on Android TV, Chromecast-enabled devices, and iOS. Later this year, it will be available on LG smart TVs through the company’s WebOS. Now, the company plans to make the service available across a more diverse portfolio of devices.
“In addition to building our own video game platform, we see a significant opportunity to make our infrastructure and tools available to partners who want to build their own interactive streaming platforms,” Google wrote in his job list.
“We are working on bespoke hardware and rapidly evolving open source technology to deliver a seamless gaming experience across multiple devices,” the company added. This indicates that Google is considering making Stadia available on devices from other tech companies. It also indicates that the company is also considering expanding its own hardware portfolio in this regard.
So what kind of devices is Google looking at? The job posting shows that Google wants to expand Stadia’s reach to more and more TVs. “Implement our approach to television, making cloud games available on more devices … Work with vendors to evolve the ecosystem of devices supporting Stadia’s hardware and software requirements,” says the listing. LG TVs will get support for Stadia later this year. So it’s possible that the company will then target Tizen-based Samsung TVs and Amazon Fire TV sticks. Beyond that, the list doesn’t reveal much.
If you’re selected, you’ll head to Google headquarters in Mountain View, California. This is another perk you don’t want to miss!
