Google Stadia heating up Chromecasts


It’s not just enough days to the launch of Google Stadia, and users are already reporting issues. The first issue of the first game streaming service the overheating of the Chromecast Ultra.

Google Stadia is a game streaming service launched by Google on November 19th inside a few of the selected countries. And how the game is playable? Using the Stadia controller and the Chromecast Ultra. But mere streaming hardware is streaming something so intense and exceeding its limit, that the users are facing unexpected shut down in between a game session.

So users took this matter to reddit and posted complaints about it. One user, armadeon7479 reports:

I was in the middle of a fight in Destiny 2 when suddenly my Chromecast died and lost connectivity to the network. I went to unplug it from the power and it was extremely hot.

Although streaming but not actually processing on Chromecast, we cannot conclude that it is the fault of the Chromecast alone. As per Google, these Chromecasts are tended to heat up during long sessions.

But we are still waiting to see what Microsoft and Valve are going to handle this kind of issue on their side before the service launch. And more of the Stadia things are yet to come.
