In another big investment in the game streaming market, the now.gg is a recently launched platform that promises to revolutionize the consumption of mobile games through the cloud, bringing a new business model to democratize access to titles by players and facilitate the publishing and monetization process by developers.

“now.gg allows mobile game developers to acquire a whole spectrum of new users who would otherwise be limited by device and app store specs,” said Rosen Sharma, CEO of now.gg. “The mobile cloud democratizes access to mobile games, removing all the friction and requirements of a device to run a new game. This sets off a new era of unprecedented possibilities for game developers to reach the next billion mobile gamers. The next generation of mobile games is here.”
To provide this service, the now.gg is powered by Android technology on Arm servers, dubbed the nowCloud OS, ensuring game developers easily cloud-enable their existing Android apps and build cloud-native platforms in the future. “This allows now.gg to adapt to endpoint characteristics, bandwidth and latency constraints, optimizing cloud cost performance.”
