Nvidia GeForce, a brand of GPU (Graphing Processing Unit) has been widely acclaimed as an advanced gaming processor that optimizes game settings and gives the gamers experience, out of the ordinary.
Earlier the GeForce set its launch for Androids and desktop. However this time it is to make its way for Chromebook. Apart from its own gaming library, recently it has amalgamated other services like Steam, Epic Games Store, and many more.
In the context of Nvidia GeForce, various updates have been notified by Nvidia with the earliest being 4th of June,
It looks as though the Android app that could be download and ran on Chromebooks has now been removed from the Play Store (via ChromeUnboxed). Attempting to search for the app will now throw up the “NVIDIA GeForce Now by NVIDIA isn’t available on Google play on this device.” This is not great news for those that might not have grabbed the file already, however, the guys over at ChromeUnboxed note that sideloading is still an alternative — provided you have an ARM-powered Chromebook. We still believe that NVIDIA is intent on bringing a dedicated web player to Chromebooks later this year, but with publishers pulling games from the game-streaming service, then subsequently changing terms recently, it’s still a little “up in the air.” If you are intent on gaming on your Chromebook, you might want to stick with Google Stadia for the foreseeable.
Another anonymous source again has confirmed Nvidia GeForce’s incorporation for the Chromebook:
To note, as per more reports, this only appears to be working on ARM-powered Chromebooks, which points towards this being a happy accident with the Android app. We are still expecting “proper” support for Chromebooks and more Android TV hardware in the coming months. However, if you do have an ARM-powered Chromebook, then you should be able to enjoy gaming on the go right now.
It was earlier decided by Nvidia of bringing a web client for GeForce made with WebRTC in order to allow Chromebook to facilitate gaming site without mediating between any other additional app.
The controversy revolves around it as some of the users have been able to witness this, but the rollout is not recognized worldwide yet. Moreover, it also is rumored to arrive with a back-draw being blocked in the Play Store.
Nvidia is currently working on web-based solutions which will improve the Chrome OS experience. All we can do is wait and play better.
