New cloud gaming app launches on Android TV to challenge GeForce Now

27 Feb 2023 | Rasmus Larsen |

Cloud gaming platform Nware offers access to over 20,000 games on Android TV and Google TV. Like Nvidia's GeForce Now, it lets you play your purchased games.

Nware says that users can connect PlayStation, Xbox and other Bluetooth controllers to stream popular games including Call of Duty, Mortal Kombat 11, Doom Eternal, Rocket League and God of War as well as free-to-play titles such as PUBG: Battleground, Apex Legends and Destiny 2. No console is required.

The app is now available for Android TV and Google TV devices including Chromecast and various TV models from Sony, Philips, TCL and others, in addition to Windows PCs and Android mobile devices.

- “Our mission is to break down the barriers to gaming and offer the ultimate freedom to play games anytime, anywhere. We’re very excited to expand our platform to Android TV, providing a more immersive gaming experience and allowing gamers more ways to play the games they want on any device they choose, without any hardware limitations. With Nware for Android TV, users can connect any gaming controllers they already own and play with their friends on their big screen TVs. We’re looking forward to offering as many ways to play as possible with Nware coming to browsers very soon," said Daniel Olmedo, co-founder & CEO of Nware.

Like Geforce Now, not Xbox Game Pass

Like Nvidia's GeForce Now, you can access your own purchased games on Nware through storefronts such as Steam, Epic Games, Ubisoft, Roblox and Minecraft. Nware costs 9 or 11 Euro monthly, depending on the plan, after a free trial period. The cost is a technology fee to use the servers and technology. In that way, it differs from Xbox Game Pass which includes a game catalog as part of the monthly fee. At this time, it has servers located in Spain and Brazil so latency could be a concern in other countries. It supports game streaming in 720p or 1080p, but there is no mention of HDR support. Nvidia recently announced 4K 120fps support for GeForce Now. On the other hand, Nware has a unique "local multiplayer" feature. - "Thanks to Nware's feature to play on Local Multiplayer mode during the streaming sessions, gamers can play with their friends in the same room, thanks to the ability to sync up to four controllers," the company said. The app can be found on the Google Play store here.
