Cloud game, also known as game on demand, is an online game technology based on cloud computing technology. Cloud game technology enables light end devices with relatively limited graphics processing and data computing capabilities to run high-quality games. In the cloud game scenario, the game does not run in the player’s game terminal, but in the cloud server, which renders the game scenario as a video and audio stream and transmits it to the player’s game terminal through the network.
Players’ game terminals do not need to have strong graphics computing and data processing capabilities, but only need to have basic streaming media playback capabilities and the ability to obtain players’ input instructions and send them to the cloud server.
