Fans of game streaming services like Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce NOW can now download a special app from Apple’s App Store for iOS.
Previously, gamers had to use the Safari web browser to take advantage of cloud gaming experiences. Still, an announcement today from Apple will change the game for cloud gamers on iPhones and other Apple devices.
Apple has announced that it has rolled out changes to the iOS App Store, introducing new options for streaming services like Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now. The new guidelines will require the services to "adhere to all App Store Review Guidelines and its host app will need to maintain an age rating of the highest age-rated content included in the app."
"Today, Apple is introducing new options for how apps globally can deliver in-app experiences to users, including streaming games and mini-programs," Apple says. "Developers can now submit a single app with the capability to stream all of the games offered in their catalog.
"Apps will also be able to provide enhanced discovery opportunities for streaming games, mini-apps, mini-games, chatbots, and plug-ins that are found within their apps."
