The full launch, including the removal of the waitlist, follows a successful beta period in which more than 500,000 participants streamed more than 4 million sessions to hundreds of types of mobile devices.
The closed beta gave the GeForce NOW team a chance to test and learn, resulting in streamlined on-screen touch controls and game menus, with gameplay that feels intuitive. The end result is a tactile experience for gamers to enjoy.
We’re thanking beta participants, whose millions of streamed sessions made these improvements possible, with a three-day priority membership, or a three-day extension for existing RTX 3080 and priority members. See below for more information.
