It also removes certain device limitations, where in theory you could stream a PC game to your smartphone. There are several such services in the market today, such as NVIDIA’s GeForce Now. The good news is that if you were considering it, you’ll be pleased to learn that GeForce Now will soon be available on Android.
According to NVIDIA’s announcement, “Just like on PC, Mac and SHIELD TV, when the Android mobile app releases it’ll be in beta. We’ll continue improving and optimizing the experience. To take full advantage of the mobile experience, we’re recommending gaming with a Bluetooth gamepad, such as SHIELD controller, Razer Raiju Mobile, Steelseries Stratus Duo or Glap Gamepad (in Korea), as some games will be unplayable on an Android phone without a gamepad.”
Editor's note: This is part of a series of stories featuring the aesthetic landscapes of Mount Fuji, Hakone in Kanagawa Prefecture and Izu in Shizuoka Prefecture, which have been visited by an increasing number of tourists from overseas. Based on conversations with travelers, the series casts light on sceneries and cultural heritages that gave form to these areas.

Last year Nintendo rolled out its Nintendo Switch Online service. For those who are unfamiliar, Nintendo Switch Online is a subscription service that gamers will need in order to play their games online with each other, but now it seems that if you’re a Twitch Prime subscriber, you will be able to get a free year of Nintendo Switch Online service.
According to Twitch, “Get up to 12 months of access to Nintendo Switch Online at no extra cost. You can claim the 3-month Nintendo Switch Online access offer now, then come back to claim the 9-month individual membership when it unlocks.” Basically this means that upfront you will be able to claim 3 months of free membership, and after 60 days and assuming you’re still subscribed to Twitch Prime, you will be able to claim the remaining 9 months.
