It currently costs exactly the same as Stadia Pro. It utilizes the hardware you already have. Whether it be a tablet, phone, or computer.

WHAT DEVICES IS GEFORCE SUPPORTING RIGHT NOW? A good number, actually. GeForce NOW was created to function with a variety of hardware.

Advertisement That implies that you can apply it to practically anything. even a potato computer. You can use it specifically on Chromebooks and Windows-based PCs and laptops. Therefore, if you’ve always wanted your computer to play demanding games but it just lacked the specifications, you are no longer constrained.

It may be accessed through Safari on both iOS and Android mobile devices. It will function on Mac desktops and laptops in addition to the NVIDIA SHIELD. The sole prerequisites for Android are that it run on Android 5.0 or later, support OpenGL ES 3.2, and have at least 2GB of RAM. You’ll also need a gamepad that is compatible.

Now, WebOS-powered LG TVs manufactured in 2021 or later will also be able to access the service.

It depends on where you play games, so this is kind of a big topic. Any controller that is supported by your PC should function if you play on it. Including the Steam controller, Xbox One controller, etc.

The list is presumably somewhat shorter if you play on an Android phone. The Razer Junglecat, Razer Kishi, SHIELD controller, Razer Raiju Mobile, Glap, SteelSeries XL, SteelSeries Stratus Duo, DualShock 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One controllers may all be used with Android phones in an official capacity. merely to mention a few, of course. given that many more people today work.

Advertisement According to NVIDIA’s FAQ page, a USB OTG cable must be used with the DualShock 4 if you’re playing on a phone. But this is untrue. You can see that both cable and Bluetooth are mentioned on the support page if you look a little farther.

The DualShock 4 should be able to communicate wirelessly with your phone over Bluetooth. Because I did it that way and it was successful, This also implies that the DualSense controller, which can connect to Android devices, should function without a hitch.

To play games that need a keyboard and mouse, you may also perhaps connect a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse to your device. This should work.


Not all of them will be put here because this is a very long list. The majority of games, to be brief.

On the PC, GeForce NOW supports a large selection of games via Steam, Uplay, and other launchers. It has access to games in this way. It draws from the video games you already have in your collection.

That ought to also address any cost-related queries. Game titles are not purchased directly from NVIDIA. You cannot, however, access any games you did not purchase. Therefore, you would need to have purchased through Steam or somewhere else if you wanted to play it.

Some titles from Steam won’t be displayed or listed in the GeForce NOW app for Android when you access them. However, after logging into your Steam account via the GeForce NOW app, you can choose from one of the games that are displayed before simply exiting and choosing another game from your Steam library.

This is so that NVIDIA can simply access your Steam account using the remote play functionality of Steam. You can play games like The Division 2, Fortnite, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and others from various launchers.
