This new option does not require any additional download or extension, as the game will be streamed in the browser. Although you will need to have an active subscription on the platform you want to play on.
Specifically, what the company wants is to “search for and launch video games in the cloud instantly with Google”, so it is a link with other platforms and the search engine works as an intermediary.
Being a tool focused on cloud gaming, the company will begin to implement it in USA with searches in English with support for computers and cell phones.
The reason why it is only in English is because these types of services are only available in regions where the 5G connection is stable, for example, xCloud only operates on Latin America in Mexico Y Argentina.

How to request a refund of money after the closure of Stadia
After the closure of this Google platform, which was the main bet on cloud gaming, the question arose as to how the money spent will be recovered since the servers will be closed next year, ending access to games, complementary services and the active subscriptions.

However, not everyone will receive a refund. The company made the decision not to return the money to those who made payments before September 29, 2022, the day the streaming service was closed, but they will do so with those who made a purchase from that day forward.
