This makes it possible for GeForce NOW to stream games with settings and frame rates that exceed what is possible on most PC laptops, underpowered desktop PCs or even to content-deprived Macs. PC gaming continues to grow in popularity, and with a service like GeForce NOW you can be sat downstairs, or at an airport, playing PUBG on your Ultrabook or 2-in-1 PC. GeForce NOW service will allow gamers to connect to their library of games from numerous top digital stores including Uplay PC, Ubisoft's PC games portal.
Nvidia Freestyle is available now through the GeForce Experience Beta. Then there's night mode, which reduces blue light so you can get off to sleep quicker after a gaming night. Not to be confused with the identically named GeForce NOW subscription service for NVIDIA SHIELD, the GeForce NOW service for Macs and PCs is a compute time rental service, with players renting a stipped down virtual machine that can be used to run already-owned games from Steam and other services.
Nvidia will make available the above settings within the latest GeForce Experience app (release 3.12) and Game Ready Driver (release 390) later today. You can sign up for the GeForce Now public beta waitlist to be notified when you're granted access. Though now available for PC and Mac gamers in the U.S. and Europe, the GeForce Now service is technically still in beta testing and therefore, you may come across bugs when playing.

"Ubisoft is excited that gamers playing acclaimed franchises such as Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege on Uplay PC can now enjoy outstanding play experiences on PCs and Macs thanks to NVIDIA's futuristic GeForce NOW service, without needing a high-end PC", said Chris Early, vice president of Partnerships and Revenue at Ubisoft. Do this by clicking your account in the top-right corner and selecting "Test my network". Over 150 popular titles are included in the game compatibility list, though the Rockstar Games catalog appears to be missing. Conveniently, save games, achievements and so on are synced with the digital game platforms so you can keep your progress and so on. There are some that aren't - these games can be found by clicking on your username and clicking "Manage Steam". It's not the best compromise, so hopefully this is something that Nvidia fixes before the service comes out of beta form later this year.
