NVIDIA GeForce Now: could have Linux support

NVIDIA GeForce Now

El gaming world advances on the Linux platform. If you told someone a decade ago that Linux would have everything that exists today, in terms of APIs, clients like Steam, or the native NVIDIA or AMD drivers that exist, and the numbers of native titles that exist, it is likely to laugh out loud. But the truth is that all that has changed in an extreme way, and although it is still a long way from Windows, great things have been achieved.

Currently, streaming gaming platforms also open new ways to run triple A video games on any platform, as long as these platforms also support your system. One of them is NVIDIA GeForce Now, which until now was not available for Linux, although that could change ...

And it is that for a long time, NVIDIA GeForce Now has also been available for the Web navigator. However, NVIDIA has forgotten about the penguin platform for now. In addition to Windows and macOS, for which the client app for this service is available, the possibility of using it in ChromeOS must also be considered.

By the way, it is now possible to play with NVIDIA GeForce Now from Chrome on Linux, making a simple change to add a ChromeOS User-Agent in the Chromium based browser. But I am not referring to that in this article, but to a support without having to do those things ...

But this news may go beyond these Google Linux systems. NVIDIA recently made an announcement about bringing GeForce NOW to Safari for iOS as well. And he also talked about other platforms, to take his streaming service as a client webRTC for other browsers, which could imply that it would also work in Chrome web browsers on GNU / Linux and Android, but with much better support.
