Playing online games is better on the bigger screen. That said, LG is bringing in two of the most popular cloud gaming services. LG recently announced that it will now have Google Stadia and Nvidia GeForce Now apps on its smart TV this 2021.
LG uses its operating system called webOS instead of the usual Android TV OS that most smart TV manufacturers use. It will be the first non-Google smart TV to offer Google Stadia to its users. At the same time, 2021 models of LG smart TVs with “Game Optimizer” settings will also be the first to offer Nvidia GeForce Now in a TV.
Google Stadia is a cloud gaming service by Google. GeForce Now is run by Nvidia. Both gaming services offer games that users can stream and play with an Internet connection. Google Stadia is best known for its games like Assassin’s Creed, Baldur’s Gate 3, Destiny 2, Rage 2, and Red Dead Redemption 2. GeForce Now gives you Fortnite, Warframe, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, League of Legends, and Dota 2.

Once released, you can download and install both the Google Stadia and Nvidia GeForce Now apps from the LG Content Store on your 2021 LG smart TVs.
