NVIDIA GeForce NOW 2.0.27 gets Google Chrome and Apple M1 support

Published: Feb 2nd 2021, 10:29 GMT   Comments

NVIDIA GeForce NOW available through Google Chrome

In the previous release of GeForce NOW, NVIDIA added support for Apple Safari browsers, this brought PC gaming into iOS and iPadOS devices. It was an easy way to avoid Apple royalties for the GeForce NOW subscription fee if the app was to be used in the Apple Store exclusively.

Today NVIDIA announces that GeForce NOW software will support Google Chrome browsers. This brings a huge collection of PC games to platforms that were previously unsupported, such as ChromeOS, which is not necessarily associated with high-end gaming. NVIDIA does not guarantee other platforms to work, but confirms that the browser version of GeForce NOW will work on Windows and macOS.

Additionally, NVIDIA has added support for the Apple M1 processor for the latest products that were released over the holiday season.

GeForce NOW is a game streaming service. Users connect to remote servers which then stream the real-time and low latency video to the supported device. This means that the game is not rendered on the end device, but on NVIDIA GRID powered servers instead.
