From last few days, rumors orbited around the market that Google would show-off in the upcoming Game Developer’s Conference (GDC). It is going to take place in San Francisco during 18th-22nd March 2019. The current guess is that Google aims to reveal a game streaming service and probably a game-console device. The new arrival may tackle many tech giants like Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo primarily in the booming gaming market. Previously, news emerged revealing that Google is unveiling a game streaming service powered by Chromecast. A newly registered patent discloses the controller used by the service.
If Google ever makes hardware for its rumored game streaming service, it may use the newly patented game controller. According to Yanko Design, Google filed for a patent for an internet-connected game controller. The device would work on any platform and would notify the user regarding chats, play invitations, and other content. The new technology will also allow the user to launch the relevant app on other appropriate devices. For example, if the TV is in use for a while, the user could unveil a multiplayer match in a tablet. The document, filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, reveal the designs similar to the PlayStation 4 DualShock controller.
The patent entitled “Notifications on Game Controller”, consists of images of an appearance of the actual game controller. The patent sheds light on a structure of a game controller that can send and receive signals to and from a host device. But the patent is not only for the controller but it is also for a notification system. The game controller has a large action button present in the center, which is surrounded by two controller buttons. One of the buttons has a mic on it, which may collectively offer chatting ability along with Google’s assistance. In the end, Google filed the patent in 2014, but the images are not likely to be any final product. It remains unclear whether Google will launch the product according to the patent.
