Dubbed 'Stadia,' the gaming platform operates entirely on the cloud and lets users 'instantly' stream games on any device, without the need for pesky downloading. 

The service is slated to launch later this year in the U.S., U.K. and Canada, with more details about available game titles expected to come in the next few months.  

Stadia ditches the traditional console; instead, users can play games with their existing laptops, desktops, TVs, tablets or phones, as well as their own keyboard and mouse. 

'Play instantly. No updates, no downloads,' Google said. 'Jump right into the game.' 

Google CEO Sundar Pichai debuted Stadia at the annual Game Developer Conference in San Francisco on Tuesday. 

The search giant also rolled out its first Google-branded Stadia game controller, which is integrated with its AI-powered Google Assistant.
