NVIDIA rolled out version 2.0.27 of its GeForce NOW cloud gaming service. The biggest changes include support for Chrome and the Apple M1 SoC. Users of Apple's new MacBook and Mac Mini devices can now enjoy GeForce NOW with native support.

Furthermore, it's now possible to use the service in Google's Chrome browser by surfing to https://play.geforcenow.com/. Other browsers like Firefox or Edge are not supported. The browser-based gaming is supported on Windows and macOS. Via bookmarks and shortcuts it's possible to launch your favorite games faster. NVIDIA says other platforms may work but are unsupported at this point.
