Verizon Gaming streaming service appears in early testing

Amazon is reportedly building a game streaming service to rival Google and Microsoft

Amazon is reportedly building a game streaming service to rival Google and Microsoft

STREAMING VIDEO! THAT'S SO 2018 DARLING.is probably something an Amazon exec said as the seller of everything is reportedly developing its own game streaming service. Gaming has proven to be a hard nut to crack for would-be streaming providers, though, with several companies trying their hand to varying degrees success over the past few years. Even more, some of those rumors point out to 2020 as the release date of the Amazon's streaming service for games.

Other big tech companies are advancing their own efforts to claim territory in the new game streaming market, including Microsoft and Google.

Cloud gaming services have the potential to disrupt the video game industry. The game streaming app, which is called Verizon Gaming, will be made available to Android testers through Google Play later this month, according to The Verge. Furthermore, it often lets them stream a whole selection of games for a fixed price, rather than buying one $60 game at a time. The Information believes that the service could launch sometime next year, and if that's true, we may hear more about it soon. Based on the leak, the Verizon Gaming service is already up and running on NVIDIA Shield devices with plans allegedly in place to expand it to Android smartphones.

Amazon's own Fire-branded hardware would likely serve as a conduit or receiver for the games streaming service.

Amazon now has openings on their job platform that include either the term "Cloud Gaming" or "Lead Platform Game Engineer". Alternatively, Amazon could include the service as part of its Prime program.

The first rumors about Amazon's streaming service for games emerged on the Internet thanks to some job ads that point, in no hidden way, to the future video game streaming platform of Amazon.

Now the real question is, do we need yet another streaming service?

Would you want to see Amazon move into this area? However, Amazon has not yet confirmed the news.
