Google adds game capture library to Stadia

Google has added a much-demanded feature to its Stadia platform.

As announced on Twitter (below), Stadia users can now access the game capture library. Players can now share their screenshots and clips to the web.

"The latest Stadia update is live! Our game capture library is now available on http://Stadia.com," said Google.

"Download & save your in-game screenshots and videos on the web to show off your legendary gear, brutal finishers, or just some scenic views."

The Stadia controller has a capture button that allows users to capture both screenshots and 30-second clips. For those with the Pro subscription. They can save unlimited screenshots and 500 clips. All other users can save 100 clips.

Due to feature having a button on the gamepad, Stadia users have been asking for this feature since the streaming platform launched in November 2019. Unfortunately, the majority of promised features were not available upon release.

Last year, the new Stadia assistant entered early access - it currently only works on Chromecast. However, users have complained that their Chromecasts have been overheating.

Earlier this month, publishers and developers claimed they were avoiding the streaming platform as Google does not offer a big enough incentive. In the coming months, a new free service will be introduced on Stadia.

In January 2020, the software giant was accused of not keeping fans up to date with current ongoings with its streaming platform.
