I got accepted into Nvidia's GeForce Now...now what?

So this morning I got an email saying I got accepted into Nvidia's GeForce Now (it’s been 4 months since I applied), so right away I went and downloaded it on my pc. But...I don’t have a big game library on steam (literally only have bought one game) and I’m not really into a lot of modern games. What should I do with GeForce Now since I have it? Before I had applied because I didn’t have a graphics card.. but now I'm not sure if I really need GeForce Now... what do you guys think I should do with it?

Well, Do you even have the internet connection for it? Even my Geforce Now struggles on 120 Mbps

Lol ok, it seems to perform alright, I mean I’ve only got 40mbps but I haven’t tested it thoroughly because of my lack of games.

I actually probably would try that but it’s kinda against Nvidia’s terms of service or whatever... ?

Give it away.  I am sure someone would enjoy it since you aren't going to use it.

Thanks for the idea... I’ve got a friend who might be able to use it.

So far I'm really surprised by GF Now's responsiveness / performance. I immediately loaded Kingdom Come: Deliverance and was delighted with the response time. My biggest complaint is that there's noticeable compression artifacting when games are in motion, while still scenes look almost identical to the same scene rendered on native hardware. I have a 100MB down / 20MB up connection. 

 

IMO, if the price is right then it's an acceptable substitute for gamers who do not have the funds, expertise, or time for a purpose-built gaming rig. Hopefully we see a Chromium/Android version of the GF Now app, this would be awesome to have on my Chromebook. 

 

Overall, I don't really have a use case for it. But I built and maintain 100% of the gaming rigs in my circle of friends and family. Now I'm in my 30s, with a wife and 2 kids, I just don't have the time to maintain everyone's computers, so I'd love to see something like GF Now make PC gaming more accessible for the casual gamers I support.

I also have GeForce now and a 200mbs internet connection. It seems t work decently although i’ve never given much attention to how much data it uses. I play at 1080p and it seems to work pretty well. I never have played anything competitive with it as I only use it on my laptop since I have a desktop to game on.

Hey, if you grab this APK (https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/nvidia/nvidia-games/nvidia-games-5-17-25543766-release/nvidia-games-5-17-25543766-android-apk-download/) and then log in with your account, you can use GF Now on Android! I don't own a Chromebook so I don't know if you can easily install APKs, but you can give it a shot. Everything works for me, including Steam. I use an Xbox One S controller paired over Bluetooth to my Essential Phone, and everything works flawlessly, just no vibration feedback obviously. I would recommend using a 5GHz network though.
