Google Stadia lets you play the game on all screens while its servers handles all the processing power and allows you to stream via cloud services. Google had build a number of data centers across the globe and had enable Google to provide the gaming cloud service.
It is recommended that you have at least 35Mbps internet speed to enjoy the 4K HDR gameplay.
