According to a recent report from DFC Intelligence, there are now more than 3 billion video consumers globally.
NVIDIA plans to add more partners to the GeForce Alliance throughout 2021 to bring cloud gaming to new regions. The service is currently available on PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, Android, and iOS devices. As announced by the company last year, it is also working on bringing the service to more Chrome platforms.
