Tencent has teamed up with Huawei to set up a laboratory to develop a cloud gaming platform, the Chinese gaming company announced in a statement.

Tencent is one of the largest gaming company in the world according to Tech Node. The company launched its cloud gaming service, Start, in March 2019. Furthermore, Tencent started to beta test popular video game ‘Fortnite’ on the platform in December 2019. Overall, the tech company is actively building up cloud gaming services, a function that runs games on remote servers and streams them directly to a user’s device.

While cloud gaming can significantly lower players’ hardware requirements, it needs a high-speed internet connection to reduce latency and powerful streaming servers to boost experience. Shenzhen-based Huawei is the world’s largest telecommunications equipment maker and its products have been widely used in China’s 5G rollout, the online publication added.

The two companies will explore more possibilities in areas such as artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and virtual reality based on the platform, Tencent said.
