LG first said in January that Nvidia’s GeForce Now cloud gaming service is heading to some of its TVs, and now it’s finally here, albeit in beta. LG is launching beta this week for “select 2021 LG 4K OLED, QNED Mini LED and NanoCell TV models in 80 markets,” according to a press release.
GeForce Now lets you play PC games you own on other devices via the cloud, and this new webOS app will make it easier to use the service on a larger screen. That said, games will be limited to 60 frames per second and 1080p resolution – you won’t be able to play GeForce Now games in 4K through the webOS app. (This feature is currently exclusive to Nvidia’s Shield TV set-top box.)
Every GeForce Now level is supported, according to Nvidia The edge, including the new tier that lets you play games on its dedicated RTX 3080 pods. All games supported by gamepads also work, according to the company. If you don’t own any PC games yourself but still want to run the service, there are over 35 free games available on GeForce Now.
Nvidia has announced plans to improve the current app by releasing updates in partnership with LG through 2022.
