Cloud gaming service Nvidia GeForce NOW will be able to stream games in 4k to Windows and macOS systems. Previously, that was only possible with Nvidia’s Shield media players.

The update will be implemented on Thursday in the GeForce NOW apps for Windows and macOS, Nvidia writes in a press release. This makes it possible to play games at 4k with a maximum of 60fps via the cloud gaming service. However, 4k streaming is not supported in the browser version of the streaming service, but only in the native apps.

Nvidia introduced the 4k streaming option last year for a GeForce NOW RTX 3080 subscription, but the feature was limited to its Shield TV media players. On Windows and macOS, up to 1440p was supported at 120fps with that plan. Nvidia previously said that 4k streaming would later be expanded to other platforms.

Furthermore, Nvidia is bringing the streaming mode for 1080p at 120Hz to a number of new smartphones. This includes the Galaxy S22 series, the Z Fold 3 and the Z Flip 3. The OnePlus 9 Pro also gets 1080p120 streaming with GeForce NOW. This option was previously only available for the Galaxy S21, Note 20 and S20 FE, in addition to the ASUS ROG Phone 5 and the Google Pixel 6 Pro.
