According to The Verge, Pixel 6 Pro owners will have more reasons to experience Nvidia’s GeForce Now game service. It’s a service that can stream games at 120 FPS on Google’s latest flagship smartphone, according to XDA Developers.
It’s unclear when the update will roll out, but many players expect the new feature to make the game experience smoother when capped at 60 FPS.
GeForce Now supports 120 FPS gaming on GeForce Now
This also suggests that a Google smartphone will become the first non-Samsung device to support 120 FPS. According to Nvidia, this feature was previously only available on Samsung’s S21, S20 FE and Note 20 product lines. You’ll need to pay $99.99 for 6 months to get GeForce Now’s RTX 3080 premium plan and be able to play games at 120 FPS.
However, GeForce Now is limited to 1080p resolution, which is lower than the Pixel 6 Pro’s 1440p native resolution. If you want to stream games at 1440p at 120 FPS, you will need a PC or Mac, while HDR and 4K quality at 60 FPS will require an Nvidia Shield TV. It is essential to ensure a 25Mbps bandwidth connection, and Nvidia recommends connecting to a 5GHz wireless network.
As a small upgrade to Nvidia’s game streaming service, you’ll be able to play some (but not all) of your existing games purchased on Steam, the Epic Games Store, and Ubisoft Connect/Uplay .
If you have a GeForce Now RTX 3080 subscription and are using a Pixel 6 Pro, high frame rates can be enabled manually from the Stream Quality menu in the GeForce Now app.
