In addition to support for movies, TV, and music sites, Google Search will also display which cloud streaming providers offer a certain video game. Google Search now displays locations where a specific movie or TV show is available for streaming, and this feature will now include games as well.
Google Search recently enhanced its search functionality by adding support for video games. However, the search giant is just focusing on cloud gaming. Currently, the company is not serving any links to the numerous PC game vendors or to the storefronts of other consoles.
Google runs its own game streaming platform, Stadia, and Google Cloud’s Immersive Stream, and these platforms pop up more prominently. That being said, the type of platform suggested is not constant and varies on the device the search query was made, i.e. either a smartphone or a PC.

For certain games, streaming services like Stadia include a “try now” option, although the “Play” button is often present in the search panel. Clicking the “Play” button on the Google Search results page immediately opens the app’s shop for that service. Naturally, this functionality works best for Google’s own Stadia.
