We can now store pictures, videos, files and all sorts of data in the cloud: a storage device that doesn’t need to exist physically. It also comes with countless privileges in the field of gaming and one of them is this: you don’t need a heavy specification to play games on your system.

In fact, with cloud gaming, you can play games on the server via a live streaming of a video where your opponent and you get allocated to get a graphical user interface to interact with each other. In your ease, you don’t need hundreds of gigabytes to download the console and play even a heavy game such as Call Of Duty; you just need a decent internet connection as it takes the use of your bandwidth to establish a connection between the server and your system.

Cloud Gaming is an umbrella term and is often referred as Gaming On Demand as it’s a form of online gaming where the client(you) sends a request to the server[of the company that has made the game] and in return, the server responds in the form of a video or a pixel stream.
