NVIDIA GeForce NOW’s RTX 3080 tier adds 120FPS streaming support for the Pixel 6 Pro

In October this year, NVIDIA launched a new GeForce NOW plan with RTX 3080 graphics. The plan included 1440p and 120FPS streaming support on PC and Mac, 4K HDR streaming on the NVIDIA Shield TV, and 120FPS streaming support on select Android devices. At launch, the plan only supported a handful of Samsung devices for 120FPS streaming, including the Galaxy S21 series, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, and the Galaxy S20 FE. Now, NVIDIA has added support for the Google Pixel 6 Pro, allowing users to play AAA games at 1080p resolution and 120FPS.

NVIDIA recently updated a support page listing all the Android devices that support 120FPS streaming, and it now includes the Google Pixel 6 Pro. If you recently bought Google’s latest flagship, you can now enjoy 120FPS gaming on your new smartphone with NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW RTX 3080 tier.
