The Google Stadia is a cloud gaming service offered by Google and it is said to support streaming of video games on 4K resolutions at 60 FPS, but this remains to be seen when the service gets launched later this year.

Nintendo has clarified that the back-of-box information for physical games , or Nintendo's website, will say if this is the case. In order to properly play these games with a Nintendo Switch Lite , you need to buy separate Joy-Con controllers.

- Stadia supports multiplayer titles, as up to four Stadia controllers can be used to play between multiple people.
