Nvidia's GeForce Now streaming service is now available for Android

Mobile gaming, and especially game streaming to mobile devices, is about to hit the market in a pretty big way, and Nvidia is ready to join the fight. After it initially announced back in August that it would be bringing its GeForce Now streaming service to Android devices, the respective app is now available on the Play Store, at least in South Korea, according to 9to5Google.

The GeForce Now app for Android does pretty what you'd expect it to do. Just like on PC, Mac, or Nvidia's own Shield, it enables you to play your games by streaming them from the cloud, rather than rendering them on the device. For Android, it also enables touch controls if you don't have a separate controller at hand - though you'll probably want to.

While the Play Store listing is currently not working in many countries around the world, you can find the installer package online and sideload the app. Note, however, that downloading software from unofficial sources can be risky, and you shouldn't do it if you're concerned about keeping your device secure.

Nvidia's GeForce Now service has been in beta testing for a while, and it's been free during that period, though you will have to pay for it once it's out of beta. It includes over 1,000 titles, which should give the company a bit of a head start over rivals coming into the market now. GeForce Now's launch on Android comes as Google and Microsoft have their own streaming services coming soon. Samsung also recently released a streaming app for some of its own devices, though that one isn't cloud-based.
