Nvidia and Valve will bolster the GeForce Now support on Steam Deck

According to some sources, Nvidia and Valve are all motivated to enhance the performance of GeForce Now on Steam Deck for cloud gamers. They are specifically targeting the cloud gamers who utilize portable. It was reported by PC Gamer. The information is retrieved from the Director of Product Management for GeForce Now at Nvidia, Andrew Fear. He reports that currently Steam Deck is not provided with any native application. Users access the Chromium browser for using it. According to him, Nvidia and Valve both are interested in enhancing the experience provided by GeForce Now on Steam Deck. He added that presently there is no official declaration regarding a native app arriving on Steam.

So, currently, gamers have to use the chromium browser for streaming the games via GeForce Now on the Steam Deck. We can’t say that a browser experience is the best. Since it presents certain things as awkward and heavy specifically those associated with game controls and interface. Given this fact, a native app could be a major step forward for the Steam Deck.
