LiquidSky 2.0’s beta gives you a chance to play Overwatch on your Android cellphone while all over the place. The company crashed and burned almost spectacularly, but no one said the road to cloud gaming would be paved with success.
It almost seems like eons ago when OnLive wanted to make the possibility of cloud gaming on various devices a reality.
LiquidSky hopes to avoid that possibility with LiquidSky 2.0, which is now in open beta and ready to be stress-tested.
Unlike OnLive, which bought and installed its own servers for every person that logged on, LiquidSky taps into IBM’s public cloud infrastructure.
LiquidSky also recommends you connect to either ethernet, 5 GHz Wi-Fi, or 4G LTE.

Up to 500 million people running older Android mobile operating systems may be affectedMalware that can spy on phone calls targets Android devicesSpyDealer, a form of Android malware, can steal data from more than 40 popular mobile device apps, including Skype, Facebook, WhatsApp and the Firefox browser.
According to cybersecurity firm Palo Alto Networks, the malicious software can spy on victims’ call histories, contacts, Wi-Fi information and locations by exploiting the operating system’s accessibility feature.
Only products running operating systems 2.2 Froyo to 4.4 KitKat are vulnerable to SpyDealer – about 25 percent of active users.
“On devices running later versions of Android, it can still steal significant amounts of information, but it cannot take actions that require higher privileges,” Palo Alto Networks said last week.
Even more alarming – SpyDealer can answer and record phone calls, audio clips and video footage.
