Nvidia is bringing a beta version of its GeForce Now game-streaming service to Google Chrome and M1 Macs.
According to XDA-Developers, the service is available for testing now. All you should need is a PC with Chrome or a dedicated app on an M1 Mac laptop.
“In 2.0.27 we are adding beta support for the Google Chrome browser, which will enable millions more prospective new PC gamers to easily play the latest games on Windows and macOS,” Nvidia says in its release notes. “Other platforms may work, but are unsupported. Just point your Chrome browser to https://play.geforcenow.com to get started!”
GeForce Now is similar to game-streaming rivals like Google Stadia and Amazon Luna—”a flexible and friendly service for playing PC games you already own on your non-gaming-PC devices,” we found in our review. It ties into your Steam, Battle.net, Epic, and UPlay accounts to let you play many of the games you already own. (Check the list of supported games.)
At launch, gamers could play via a GeForce Now app on PC, Mac, and Android. Support arrived on Chromebooks in August and on iOS in November. Now it’s expanding to Chrome and Apple Macs that run its new M1 chips. (Check out the full list of supported GeForce Now devices here.)
As The Verge notes, Windows users are restricted to Chrome on the browser; there’s no Edge support yet, even though it’s now a Chromium browser. Both Chrome and the GeForce Now Mac app support gamepads and mouse and keyboard setups.
