What is Crowd Play Beta?
Google Stadia’s crowd play feature allows users to enjoy the gaming experience with select games supported by Google Stadia. Users will have to link YouTube and Google cloud gaming service accounts together to enjoy the Google Stadia Crowd Play Beta Feature. Once you activate the crowd play feature you can start the live stream.
Google Stadia Crowd Play Beta feature will also allow users to interact with streamer’s channels. With one click users will be able to add a player to the queue, to join the stream, and play as soon as the streamer lets the player in.
Streamers will also be able to play with the same viewers/subscribers or can even choose to remove the current viewers from the lobby and add other players. The feature is in some way similar to the subscriber games, the way YouTube streamers are able to engage their subscribers.
Currently, you can opt for the Google Stadia Crowd Play Beta feature through the application form. The Crowd Play feature was earlier released along with the launch of Stadia.
Since then it has been available for select users only. Game titles currently available with Google Stadia games include Borderlands 3, Crayata, Dead by Daylight, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, alongside others.
