Today, NVIDIA announced some exciting news regarding their game streaming service: NVIDIA GeForce NOW is coming to Android devices. More detail will be coming soon but the announcement states that it will be supported on top-tier Android phones "including flagship devices from LG and Samsung." There's no release window for when it's coming but the app will launch in beta, like on PC.
Additionally, RTX servers are being added, rolling out first for users in Germany and in California, U.S. This means that games streamed will be able to take advantage of RTX hardware features, like raytracing. There are over 500 games now supported by NVIDIA GeForce Now, with more coming in the future. Games in the library can also be downloaded on local PC hardware, so you'll have access to your games on PC without streaming as well.
