The project was originally created to work through Chromecast, but The Information also hints that Google has experimented with building a game console and controller purchasable specifically for using the service.
Google's service will stream the games to you over the internet instead of asking you to download them (or purchase disks) before you can play. A report by The Information says that Google could very well be working on a streaming service for gaming. This means Google must be taking the console approach quite seriously.
Google certainly has its work cut out for it if it wants to break into gaming and challenge the dominance of Sony and Microsoft. The system would be similar to Sony's PlayStation Now, Xbox GamePass and NVIDIA GeForce Now.
The project is being led by Google's product management VP Mario Queroz and engineering VP Majd Bakar, and their experience suggests some sort of hardware in development.

First, Google could allow the game service to be accessed through its own Chromecast digital media players, meaning all players need is an online access point and a controller (maybe even their remotes?) to take part. The company has tested several versions of the tech so far and is said to be targeting "top tier" gaming developers.
The immediate knee-jerk reaction to this news is to believe that Google has likely designed a proper Chromecast console - one that can play Android TV games and stream video content from sources like Netflix, YouTube and Hulu.
The report claims that the idea of Google's Yeti service is for people to pay a monthly subscription fee to access a collection of games. The company has also hired former Microsoft and Sony gaming executive Phil Harrison last month.
