Cloud Gaming is a great way to enjoy graphically demanding games on Apple Vision Pro.
Since Safari on visionOS does not support PWA mode, here is how you can access cloud gaming services on Apple Vision Pro.
- A compatible game controller
- visionOS supports game controller from Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.
- visionOS is really opinionated on where to send game controller events so if your controller is not working with the service you're using, try tap the center of the view and that should inform visionOS that this app should receive the game controller events.
- Nexus⁺ app
- Disclosure - I made this because I wanted to access these services myself. Some other apps may also available.
GeForce Now is the ideal cloud gaming service to use on Apple Vision Pro. With 4K resolution support (GeForce Now Ultimate membership required), the visual quality of the games is stunning.
After pairing the game controller with Apple Vision Pro, you can access GeForce Now from the bookmarks.
Before starting your first game session, make sure you go to GeForce Now settings and adjust the picture quality for higher resolution streaming, as the default option may not be optimal for a large canvas. (Due to the lack of H.265 support in Safari's WebRTC implementation, you may experience visual glitch streaming in 4K 120FPS configuration. In that case try switch back to 4K 60FPS instead.)
If you run into issue starting the game session, try turn off Turbo mode from the edit menu.
Xbox Cloud Gaming is also available and offers a wide range of console games that might be interesting to explore. The service currently only supports streaming up to 1080p.
You can access Xbox Cloud Gaming from your bookmarks.
The app also includes an option to use Better xCloud with the website. Better xCloud enables Remote Play from your Xbox console and offers a wide range of options you can tweak. You can enable the script by long-tapping on the bookmark option to open the context menu, select Edit, and enable Better xCloud.
To update the Better xCloud script, long-tap on the row to show the context menu and select
Update to download the latest script.
