Pixel 6 Pro owners now have another reason to try Nvidia’s GeForce Now cloud game streaming service. According to a recently updated support page spotted by developers XDA, the service can now stream games at 120fps on Google’s latest flagship smartphone. It’s unclear when the update went live, but it should make games run smoother and more responsive than they did when limited to 60fps.
As a result, Google’s phone is the first non-Samsung phone to handle 120 frames per second. The capacity was previously accessible for Samsung’s S21 series, as well as the S20 FE and Note 20 phones, according to Nvidia’s Help website. To stream games at this higher frame rate, you’ll need to upgrade GeForce Now’s RTX 3080, which costs $ 99.99 for six months of service. It’s not exactly cheap, but it’s still cheaper than researching one of the graphics cards on your own, and there’s no waiting to join last week.
On Android, GeForce Now can only stream at 1080p, which is lower than the native resolution of the Pixel 6 Pro’s 1440p display. If you want to stream 1440p at 120fps, you’ll need a PC or Mac, while 4K 60fps HDR streaming requires an Nvidia Shield TV. Nvidia recommends connecting to a 5 GHz wireless router for 1080p streaming, which requires 25 Mbps of bandwidth.
It’s a nice addition to Nvidia’s game streaming service, which lets you play some (but not all) of your existing Steam, Epic Games Store, and Ubisoft Connect / Uplay games. We’ve already been blown away by what it is capable of, and new features like this don’t hurt. Support for 4K on non-Nvidia hardware is expected to arrive soon.
If you have a GeForce Now RTX 3080 subscription and a Pixel 6 Pro, you can manually enable the highest frame rate in the Stream Quality menu in the GeForce Now app.
