- Google’s game controller possibly revealed in a patent.
- The illustrations suggest there could be a dedicated Google Assistant button on the controller.
- Google is expected to make some announcements about its gaming service at the upcoming GDC.
Google is already working on its “Project Stream” online game streaming service, which enables users to play games via the Chrome browser on the desktop. Google's game streaming service is currently under testing, but there have also been reports that the company is working on dedicated hardware that will enable streaming games. Now, a new patent, via The Verge, shows off the possible controller that the service might make use of. While the patent shows off some drawings of the alleged controller, it was apparently filed to demonstrate a system that notifies users when a new game or an invitation has arrived, or when there’s a chat request from another player. The controller's design was disovered within this patent for a notification system.
