NVIDIA announces the launch of GeForce NOW on Chromebooks
GeForce NOW is NVIDIA's service that allows gaming via cloud rather than on a big expensive set-up. Currently, it appears to be thriving where counterparts such as Google's Stadia is not, due to advantages such as supporting games also found in a user's pre-existing Epic Games or UPlay library and potential coups suhc as getting Death Stranding as soon as it stopped being a PS4 exclusive.
Now, its maker has announced another possible upside for many new potential subscribers, namely Chromebook users. Yes, compatibility with GeForce NOW for these machines is now available, albeit in beta at present. Nevertheless, NVIDIA asserts that getting the service going on this new platform is as easy as logging into play.geforcenow.com and clicking on the new button now found on this page.
The graphics giant asserts that this could make the average Chrome OS device into a high-performance gaming machine. However, this obviously still depends on a number of factors, not the least of which is the strength and bandwidth of the internet connection in question. Nevertheless, it may be heartening for many users to see their versatile PC category cut into the world of game-streaming in this way.
