It seems that problems do not stop appearing on the cloud-based gaming platform Google Stadia. An example is that it has just been known that the use combined with the media player Chromecast Ultra it does not offer the most adequate stability and, therefore, there are problems in the long sessions of use. We show exactly what happens.

The fact is that now it has been known that when combining Google Stadia with Chromecast Ultra, the pair does not offer the best possible user experience (lake that should be like this), since the player does not support intensive use for a long time since the temperature causes it to shut down and restart. And, of course, this is something that the Mountain View company should have reviewed before doing anything. And, in addition, there are few solutions that exist apart from lowering the quality and resolution, something that will impact on what users see – and, sure, this is not exactly to the liking of the firm.
