GeForce NOW, the online gaming platform from NVIDIA, has now become available for Chrome for Windows and macOS. It means PC and Mac users can access the goodness of the GeForce Now streaming service while using the Google Chrome browser. Earlier, users had to download the corresponding Windows/macOS apps to get this done.

While this may not be a ground-breaking feature, support for the Chrome browser is a step in the right direction. Because this process removes the necessity of installing something on the system, people can check out how the GeForce Now experience works for them. When the service is available in its fully-fledged form, Chrome would be one of the most convenient ways to test it.
Users can go to the official site, sign in using the subscription details, and start playing their favorite games. Since the service doesn’t rely on computer hardware, there won’t be any problem as long as your PC or Mac has a stable internet connection.
“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. (ChromeOS is already supported.) Other platforms may work, but are unsupported,” NVIDIA said.
Nevertheless, playing your favorite games on a Google Chrome window via GeForce Now may not be a fully-fledged alternative to the experience provided by the dedicated applications. NVIDIA still recommends that you install the corresponding Windows or macOS apps to enjoy the game-streaming service best.
Of course, the developer would have optimized the applications for better performance and resource management. Simultaneously, the browser-based interface would be an impressive choice when you want to play games on another device without the burden of installing something on the device.
NVIDIA’S GeForce Now has been taking multiple steps towards better availability in the past year. Unlike the other companies, it seems to be focused on providing the best experience for users and less on an exclusive library of games. Nonetheless, NVIDIA has partnered with many developers to create a library of popular titles.
