LG said first in January that the cloud gaming service GeForce Now has been brought to some of its TVs by Nvidia, and now it’s finally here – albeit in beta. This week, LG is introducing the beta for “selected 2021 LG 4K OLED, QNED Mini LED and NanoCell TV models in 80 markets”. according to the press release.
GeForce Now lets you play PC games you own on other devices via the cloud, and this new webOS app makes it easier to use the service on a bigger screen. However, games are limited to 60 fps and 1080p resolution – you cannot play GeForce Now games in 4K through the webOS app. (This function is currently exclusively for Nvidia’s Shield TV set-top box.)
Every GeForce Now tier is supported, says Nvidia The edgeincluding the new level you can play games at its dedicated RTX 3080 pods. Any gamepad-supported game will work too, the company says. If you don’t own any PC games but want to try it out, GeForce Now has over 35 free games available for you.
Nvidia plans to improve the current app by releasing updates in collaboration with LG through 2022.
