NVIDIA has announced that it is bringing its GeForce NOW cloud gaming service to a number of cars for the first time, with no special hardware required.
The announcement comes as part of NVIDIA’s CES 2023 news and confirms that Hyundai Motor Group, BYD, and Polestar will be among the first car companies to add support.
The new GeForce NOW support will allow people to play games on big in-car screens, a press release confirmed.
Thanks to cloud technology and the mobile internet, vehicle occupants can keep boredom at bay with the ability to enjoy music, movies and now video games in the car. Drivers and front seat passengers can access games while parked or charging, while those in the backseat of vehicles where rear entertainment is enabled can play anytime on the road.
NVIDIA promises that gamers will be able to enjoy more than 1,000 games anywhere and at any time, adding that its new car-building partners are “taking a significant step into this new era of personal transportation.”
There’s currently no word on when this will all happen, but the streaming will happen via an in-car web browser or Android-based infotainment system, depending on the car in question.
This news comes hot on the heels of the revelation that recent Tesla electric vehicles can also play games from Valve’s Steam library, too.
