“Has there been any early indications of how much data Stadia uses per hour internally at Google?” I know they may be hesitant to answer but it’s worth a shot 🙂

Hey guys, I’m interested to hear your thoughts on the possibility of Stadia supporting guest multiplayer on multiple screens in the same household?
It would be very cool if my wife and me could play something like Borderlands 3 together on the same account but not have to use split screen.
My main concern with this feature is the bandwidth consideration, I would assume that 2 screens means double the bandwidth which may not be something everyone’s connection can support. Unless there’s some clever way for google to combine the 2 outputs and apply compression, then somehow split them apart when it hits our local network.  Seems unlikely but still interested to hear your take on this.

I am a frequent viewer of your channel who’s seen your nigh-meteoric rise, and acknowledgment by Google’s higher-ups, and who would like to use you as a way to get a certain question answered. We all know that Destiny 2: The Collection is coming to Stadia Pro. This has all the previous expansions. We also know that Destiny 2 is going free-to-play in a month with the advent of New Light. New Light only has the first year downloadable content. However, what we don’t know is how Stadia and Bungie are going to handle the following situation: a person plays Destiny 2: The Collection through Stadia Pro. They beat all the expansions and are soaked to the gills in Forsaken/Shadowkeep armor and weapons. After awhile, they cancel the Pro subscription and log in to New Light. Could they even log in to New Light at that point? What will happen to the gear that they got from the expansions? Will they have to start a new character? Now, I’m not asking you to speak with the Stadia team directly. What I am asking is for you to at least bring it up during the podcast. That way, it is out into the ether and public consciousness, so that Google and Bungie can address it.

I’m the “gutsy” guy from Gamescom that you have talked about in StadiaCast 22.

First of all, I want to say thank you to you both for your Podcast. I’m a Stadia Founder since the first day (even if it doesn’t officially release in my country) and was driving to Gamescom (6h) mainly because of Stadia (I played 6 times there and got a Stadia sweater, so totally worth it). As you can see I’m really into Stadia, so I really appreciate your highly professional Podcast!
