Nvidia is bringing GeForce Now to Android TVs

11 Jun 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

GeForce Now is no longer exclusive to the company's Shield box. The game streaming service can now be installed in beta on some Android TV devices, with wider support rolling out later.

GeForce Now for Android TV

Nvidia's game streaming service, GeForce Now, lets you stream PC games purchased through participating storefronts, such as Steam, over the internet. TV support was previously reserved for the company's own Android TV-based Shield box. Some users have had luck side-loading GeForce Now on Android TV devices from other brands but with the latest app update Nvidia has officially started rolling out support. The company notes that the app is currently in beta. Full support is expected to roll out later this year. - "Our latest update adds beta support for Android TV devices. Nvidia recommends Shield TV with the Nvidia Games app for the best GeForce Now experience on a TV. Shield TV provides the lowest latency and highest quality on TVs. Other Android TV devices have not been optimized and experiences may vary," said Nvidia.

GeForce Now Android TV

At this time, we have a Sony Android TV listed as a compatible device. 9to5Google notes that it requires an Android TV device running Android 5.0 or higher with at least 2GB of RAM and support for OpenGL ES 3.2.

On the other hand Nvidia may be able to sign up new users to its game streaming service before Google launches Stadia on Android TV. - Source: Nvidia via 9to5Google
