Nvidia's GameStream tech lets GeForce owners stream PC games to Shield devices. The pairing process is a bit involved, though. Users have to enter a PIN on the PC for each Shield device they want to use, and they need to configure port forwarding on their router to stream games from remote networks. Today, Nvidia updated its GeForce Experience and Shield Hub applications to smooth out the GameStream setup process.
The new pairing process requires that Shield owners use the same Nvidia account to log into the GeForce Experience app on their PCs and the Shield Hub Android app on their Shield devices. Once that's done, Shield Hub should display a list of GameStream-compatible games without any further configuration. Nvidia says Remote GameStream should now work without port forwarding, too.
To take advantage of the simpler setup process, one needs only to update the GeForce Experience app for the PC and the Shield Hub app for Shield devices. Folks who don't have an Nvidia account already will have to sign up for one, as well.
