    • For more information on using this feature, please check out our knowledge base article.

    New NVIDIA Account Login Experience

    • GeForce NOW is growing with more service providers around the world providing service. Therefore, we need to upgrade our Login service to support multiple provider logins.
    • During the transition, all users will be logged out one time. Don’t panic: This is expected, and all you need to do is log in again.
    • When you start the new login process, you will go to a website to log in. Once you are done, just come back to the app and you will be logged in.
    • Most NVIDIA GeForce NOW members that go to the website to log in just need to click the NVIDIA button (sole provider in your region). If you are using GeForce NOW through one of our Alliance Partners, select your provider on the website.

    Fit and Finish

    • Every second counts.  We shaved off about two seconds from the time it takes from pressing play in our app to when streaming starts.
    • Our designers made some more small changes to the game details, which reduce the amount of scrolling needed to read about each game.

    • Need help with FreeStyle? Start here.

    • Over the next few weeks, PC users will see support for our first two games - Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and League of Legends. Let no victory go unrecorded! We’ll add support for the feature to more games over time. Stay tuned to see which games get support next and when we add macOS support!

    • All our apps - PC, macOS, SHIELD and Android - will now display patching and maintenance status for games. These messages appear on mouse hover (on PC and macOS), when you search for games from our search box and in game details.

    Game Content Ratings

    More Game Info

    • Want to know if your chosen game has controller support, or includes multiplayer modes? You can find that info under the game’s details.

    Other Changes

    • Fit and finish improvements, designed to make browsing the app easier and faster and improve overall stability. These are little details that maybe you won’t notice, but keep our UI designers up at night. Get some sleep, guys!
    • For instance, switching between rows when expanding the game details is much more comfortable, and it’s now much harder to accidentally change the game in the evidence panel as you move your mouse across the screen.
    • Added a workaround for macOS users with Japanese 106 key keyboard layouts that are unable to type an underscore (“_”) when streaming. Please use “SHIFT + _” when streaming.

    Game Patching Notifications

    • Our new app will now show if a game is patching before you launch it. Know before you go.
    • More info on our game patching process is a big priority for us, and we’re thrilled to make this easier for you.

    • The GeForce NOW app adds support for the following languages: UK English, Latin America Spanish, Slovak, Slovenian, Croatian.

    Improved App Visuals

    • Various tweaks to the way the app looks, including small changes to top-banner game images. Kind of like when Mom licks a napkin to clean your little brother’s face, but it’s a software engineer and somehow less awkward.

    Other Things

    • Parles-tu Français ? Because if you do and you use a French keyboard you might have found our problem with using the “@” symbol to login to digital stores or game launchers.  We have written workaround steps here and are working on a real fix in a future app update.

    Streaming Quality Improvements

    • Streaming quality has been improved on networks with high packet loss.
    • Prevented streaming quality bars from appearing when our app falsely detects poor networks.
    • Improved game start-up-time from when you click a game in our app to when the stream starts by about 400ms. It ain’t much, but it’s honest work.

    Patching and Maintenance Mode

    • All our apps - PC, macOS, SHIELD and Android - will now display patching and maintenance status for games. These messages appear on mouse hover (on PC and macOS), when you search for games from our search box and in game details.
    • Patching status means that game is currently being updated. They’re usually available again in a few hours, though occasionally it can take longer than that.
    Deep Rock
    • Maintenance means that the game has to be taken offline and may not be available to play for several days or, in rare cases, weeks.

    App Polish

    • Performance has been improved when activating the in-game overlay (CTRL+G or CMD+G).  You can use the overlay to access our NVIDIA Highlights feature and other settings while streaming.
    • Fixed fuzzy text UI issues on high DPI displays, such as Retina notebooks and iMacs. This doesn’t change the text you see while streaming, but it will help improve in-app dialog boxes and messages.  
    • Improved search results to no longer show cached games, which may no longer be available to play.

    • Want to try this out? Type in “Wolcen” into the search bar.

    GeForce NOW: GeForce Gaming, Available to All

    • We are excited to announce that our beta test period has ended, and GeForce NOW is open to everyone. Ready to get started? Read on.
    • GeForce NOW members in regions serviced by alliance partners (GFN.ru, LGU+, Softbank) will continue to experience the service as offered by those alliance partners. Look for updates from them for any service changes in their regions.

    Search in More Languages

    • Our Search bar’s been studying - you can now search to find a specific game in our PC and macOS apps if it has a name in your language.
    • Want to find Fortnite? Sure, you can search for the game in English, but in South Korea the game is known as 포트나이트.  Using either name will get you into the action.
    • Even if your chosen game doesn’t have a non-English name, you can now search using keywords or genres in your local language. Give it a try!

    More Game Info

    • We’ve added more info to game details 
    • Want to know if your chosen game has controller support, or includes multiplayer modes? You can find that info under the game’s details.

    Other Changes

    • Fit and finish improvements, designed to make browsing the app easier and faster and improve overall stability. These are little details that maybe you won’t notice, but keep our UI designers up at night. Get some sleep, guys!
    • For instance, switching between rows when expanding the game details is much more comfortable, and it’s now much harder to accidentally change the game in the evidence panel as you move your mouse across the screen.
    • Added a workaround for macOS users with Japanese 106 key keyboard layouts that are unable to type an underscore (“_”) when streaming. Please use “SHIFT + _” when streaming.
    • Other miscellaneous fixes. You may not see them, but they’ll improve overall app quality, stability, and reliability.

    Local Mouse Cursor Added

    • We now draw the mouse cursor locally in your app with games that use a hardware cursor, such as League of Legends and Path of Exile.
    • This improves latency, speeds up cursor response times, and improves game menu navigation, resulting in a better overall mouse feel. 
    • Click the exclamation icon and let us know how the new cursor works for you.  Your feedback helps us dial it in.

    Gotta Go Fast

    • Game sessions will now launch even faster - by as much as 1.3 seconds. Every second you’re not in the game is a moment wasted, right?

    New and Improved Network Tester

    • The time it takes to run a network test has been reduced from around 15 seconds to a mere five seconds. We are rolling this update out to each of our GeForce NOW data centers over the coming weeks, so it may take some time to reach everyone.
    • Need even more help with your connection? Click here.

    New Highlights In-Game Overlay Shortcuts

    • Our new app updates some keyboard shortcuts used to activate the In-Game Overlay and record your content using NVIDIA Highlights.

    macOS 10.15 Catalina Support

    • macOS 10.15 Catalina is now supported. A few Catalina-specific notes below.
    • Catalina users will be notified that “NVIDIA GeForce NOW” is requesting access to your microphone the first time you run a game. You will only need to do this the first time you run a game on GeForce NOW.
    • There are changes by Apple in macOS 10.15 Catalina that change an application’s default access to mouse input. If you are using GeForce NOW with macOS 10.15 Catalina, your gaming experience may be different, and you may experience mouse acceleration when gaming. Please follow the instructions in this knowledge base article to change your experience to feel like previous macOS.

    Other changes and squashed bugs

    • Turbo Mode (120 FPS) has been moved to the Competitive stream profile within the GeForce NOW app’s options. We have updated our apps to remove the Turbo Mode (120fps) from the custom streaming profile in the app settings. However, it is still available for you to use under the competitive streaming profile.
    • Other bug fixes to improve quality and reliability. Itty-bitty stuff that you probably didn’t even notice, but we fixed anyway.

    Get In The Game Faster

    • Game sessions should launch 2-3 seconds faster, thanks to some backend magic in this update. That’s 10% faster on average.
    • Think of what you can do with this extra free time. You can learn a new language, or eat a pre-game snack. We vote snacks.

    Game Patching Notifications

    • Our new app will now show if a game is patching before you launch it. Know before you go.
    • More info on our game patching process is a big priority for us, and we’re thrilled to make this easier for you.

    Additional Language Support

    • The GeForce NOW app adds support for the following languages: UK English, Latin America Spanish, Slovak, Slovenian, Croatian.

    Improved App Visuals

    • Various tweaks to the way the app looks, including small changes to top-banner game images. Kind of like when Mom licks a napkin to clean your little brother’s face, but it’s a software engineer and somehow less awkward.

    Other Things

    • Parles-tu Français ? Because if you do and you use a French keyboard you might have found our problem with using the “@” symbol to login to digital stores or game launchers.  We have written workaround steps here and are working on a real fix in a future app update.
