NVIDIA took the gaming industry by storm a couple of months ago when it launched its GeForce NOW service. This is a streaming service that makes it possible for people from all over the world to play their favorite games on any platform they want, even though their PCs or smartphones might not have the required hardware. The way this works is that GeForce NOW connects the user to a cloud network that streams gameplay from powerful PCs.
The amazing thing about GeForce NOW is the fact that the streaming service is also available on Android-powered smartphones. This means that users can play PC-exclusive titles such as Apex Legends and The Division 2 for example. The only requirement for this to work is for the Android device to support OpenGL ES 3.2 and to have a minimum of 2GB of free internal storage space.
