GeForce Now users can sync their Steam libraries with their accounts with Nvidia’s new Game Sync feature. Compatible games will appear in the My Library section of Game Sync, Nvidia announced.
The ‘bring your own game’ cloud service, which launched its paid tier earlier this year, allows users to play games purchased through other platforms, including Steam, Epic Games STore, Battle.net and Uplay , in the cloud. But finding games in your Steam library that are compatible with GeForce Now was a bit of a slog.
The new feature will identify games in a user’s Steam library supported by GeForce Now and automatically add them to the app’s “My Library” list, Nvidia says. To sync your Steam account with your GeForce Now library, go to Game Sync in Settings each time you purchase a new game through Steam.
When Nvidia launched the paid tier of GeForce Now, it sparked controversy among game publishers, who saw it as a way for users to access copyrighted content without publisher permission, and many have withdrawn their games from GeForce Now. Nvidia updated its policy in May, requiring publishers and developers to join the platform to have their games available remotely on Nvidia’s servers.
