LG has announced a partnership with NVIDIA to become the first TV manufacturer to develop smart TV applications for GeForce Now, the first cloud-based game streaming service for webOS.1 TVs.

According to the South Korean company, its TV is completely identical to GeForce Now. This is because they have a large screen, vivid image quality, and a high refresh rate.

LG first announced in January that Nvidia's cloud gaming service will be used on some of its TVs.

The service is currently available on Nvidia Shield TV, Windows PC, macOS, Chrome OS, and Android devices. It can also be accessed through the Apple Safari browser for iPhone and iPad.

Cloud services allow gamers to play games on LG TVs and resume games on almost any device they own.

The app will be available as a beta on the LG Content Store this week. This includes LG 4K OLED TVs, QNED Mini LED TVs, and NanoCell TVs in 80 markets in 2021.

Hence, the app allows LG TV users with a compatible TV to instantly enjoy more than 35 free games with a compatible joystick without the need for additional hardware.

The game includes Rocket League, Destiny 2, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Crysis remake trilogy. They can all run at speeds up to 1080p and 60fps.

However, you cannot play GeForce Now games in 4K resolution through the webOS app. This functionality is currently only available on Nvidia Shield TV.

Preferred GeForce members can now benefit from the most advanced platform for ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and server-based streaming technology. Powered by NVIDIA RTX technology in global data centers. For the most responsive gameplay and high quality graphics.

The powerful combination of GeForce Now and LG OLED TV ensures the best immersive experience. Self-lighting pixels also ensure the brightest colors and deepest blacks. This makes the environment and characters in the game more realistic than ever.

In addition, LG TVs also offer an ultra-fast response time of 1ms and ultra-low input delay. This is for smoother visual effects, better control and a major competitive advantage.

“LG customers expect the best when they play on the big screens,” said Lee Sang-woo, Senior Vice President of Corporate Business Strategy at LG Electronics Home Entertainment.

He added, "Working with NVIDIA to bring cloud gaming services to LG TV owners demonstrates our commitment to providing the best gaming experience on LG webOS TVs.

Nvidia plans to improve the existing app by working with LG to release updates by 2022.
