Google Stadia's online gaming platform has not had a good reception for the first time since its launch, in part because of the latency issues it has. But Google is trying to improve the service as much as possible to be an effective service, and more now that NVIDIA is working hard with GeForce Now. He 4K resolution support It is for this, a very good incentive, and now Google has confirmed that they are finally using it on their platform.
Stadia now lets you play 4K with Chrome
Given that the quality, performance and custom graphics options for Google Stadia games may be insufficient compared to the competition (GeForce Now), 4K solution support is an important factor to consider. Of course, there are other services that already support this decision, but i 4K support via browser
Stadia has always been supportive of 4K resolution, but if only we were using it Chromecast Ultra. However, Google has now admitted that it has already introduced support for playing with Stadia in 4K resolution via its Chrome browser, something they have done using what is called «soft releases«, Which means that it is a user-friendly update, they do not need to update anything because it was created on the manufacturer's own servers.
Hi Eric! Chrome 4K support has been an easy release, and this can depend on the monitor you use. To be sure, you get the same result in all games? Also, have you tried adjusting the data usage options in your Stadia app?

This is especially good news for users who have signed up for the Stadia Base program, since it doesn't have a Chromecast Ultra in the pocket and, as a result, there was no chance of playing in 4K resolution by any means. Now these users can do it through a browser.
Stadia has already announced its intention to use 4K compatibility with its new year update. This compatibility is listed with other updates, such as the many features of wizard play in the browser, support for many Android smartphones and wireless browser browsing Stadia controller
Will it be a real 4K decision?
Stadia 4K support has been criticized from the start, because even the Chromecast Ultra games don't look as good as they should, and they seem to work on 1440p or even 1080p and then is not limited to 4K resolution. In other words, they don't work on real 4K resolution, and this is because the videogame developers themselves have not done well to work with Stadia.
This leads us to ask ourselves the inevitable question: is that compatible with a 4K solution with a browser, will it be real or do we recreate games with poor resolution? We will have to give them time to go to related games to check it out.
