With the most recent release of NVIDIA GeForce Now, you will be able to stream games directly to the Chrome browser on more than just Chromebooks. With version 2.0.27, gamers can play their favorite games in the cloud using a Chromium-based browser on Windows, macOS, and Chromebooks. Other platforms, such as Linux devices, may still work, although they are not officially supported.
We know that the web-client of GeForce Now does work on Linux; however, you may have to spoof your browser's user agent.
Oh, and along with the update to allow more devices to officially support the Chromium-based client, gamers that purchased the new M1-based Mac's will be able to download the new macOS client and game straight on the official client!
It is good to note that not all Chromium-based browsers will work with GeForce Now. If you run into issues with your browser not working, you can download Google Chrome, or you can spoof your user agent to make GeForce Now's website think that you are using Google Chrome. Either method should work.
The release of the Chromium-based browser's multi-platform support opens up more options to those that like to use non-windows and macOS operating systems. As someone who primarily uses Ubuntu-based Linux distro's, it is good to see this.
NVIDIA GeForce Now joins the leagues of Google Stadia and Amazon Luna in cloud gaming straight in your browser. Other cloud gaming platforms like Xbox Cloud Gaming and Shadow have browser-based streaming on their roadmaps.
