The streaming service project is apparently codenamed "Yeti" which makes a lot of sense since Google's interests in gaming have been talked about but have yet to materialize.

According to numerous sources, the company is now working on a new subscription-based service, compatible with Chromecast, which would be used to stream games. But another idea Google may have is making its own console. The company has discussed the service with game developers, but at the moment it's not clear whether any of them will out Yeti-exclusive titles or simply port over existing streamed games.

This new service has reportedly been in development for two years, and it's so far along that Google reportedly considered launching it for the Holiday 2017 season.
