Nvidia GeForce Now game streaming service reaches M1 MacBooks under ‘beta’ tag
This essentially means that once the service is out of beta and reaches to the masses, it will be possible to visit the GeForce Now website on Chrome browser in your M1 MacBook and create an account to start playing.
Looks like soon it will be possible to play more games on your M1 MacBook Pro and MacBook Air as Nvidia's GeForce Now game streaming service has arrived for the Chrome web browser on these Mac's.
This essentially means that once the service is out of beta and reaches the masses, it will be possible to visit the GeForce Now website on Chrome browser in your M1 MacBook and create an account to start playing.
“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,” states the release note.
According to the same release note by Nvidia, some more changes have been made in the servers for this browser. This includes the ability to create dedicated shortcuts for your games, along with a new way for sharing links that will navigate your friend directly into the game.
Some bud fixes have also been made in the version 2.0.27:
-If you changed your keyboard to non-English, you can now input alphabetical keys during streaming.
-The correct filters will now be applied when you switch from Ansel to FreeStyle.
-You will no longer see an infinite spinner in the feedback dialog box if you lose your network connection.
-The setting page will no longer freeze after pressing the Snap button when using Ansel.
-Fixed a problem where some games that were available on multiple game stores saw the same store repeated when using search or on the game details.
-GeForce NOW will auto update properly after clicking Relaunch Now on macOS Big Sur.
-Your preferred game store will now be properly selected when you launch a game for the second time.
It's worth adding that although the service is available in Google stadia, Amazon Luna, Windows PC, macOS, Nvidia Shield, Chromebook, Android and Safari on iOS, you obviously would need to be in a region where GeForce Now is available.
In addition, the service is not yet there on Microsoft Edge browsers, although they run on the same chromium platform as the Google Chrome.
