THE Now GG arrived recently, but the platform for games who wants to be the “streaming of games” has already become a success among audiences of different ages. Aimed at the mobile universe, the platform was developed with the objective of democratizing access to mobile games.
Among its features, Now GG allows developers to publish their games in a cloud, so that users can use them without having to download and install the games on your mobile devices.
Based in Silicon Valley, the company is controlled by the same group as Game.tv, the largest sports mobile platform in the world, and BlueStacks, the largest Android gaming platform for PC.

The factor that has been drawing attention and is pointed out as the reason for the high popularity of the streaming is the possibility of playing great hits from the world of games, such as Roblox, even on older or not very robust smartphones.
Planned obsolescence affects everyone, but particularly countries whose economies are not as solidified as is the case in Brazil. In this context, the revolution propagated by the “game streaming” gains even more impressive contours.
Now GG is an innovative format that should be a “game changer” for mobile games. The platform has similarities to established services for consoles and PCs, such as Xbox Cloud Gamin and GeForce Now.

Netflix, Spotify, HBO Max, Disney+ and Deezer. Each in its own way, the services of streaming revolutionized the way consumers and producers of cultural goods interact. Music, movies and series are a given reality, while the pandemic has also put theater on this Ferris wheel.
Despite similar attempts by the Playstation and Xbox, a tool had not yet emerged whose characteristics were in accordance with what we could configure as a service of streaming turned to games. This reality changed when the Now GG emerged.
First, because it uncomplicates a segment still marked by devices with low storage capacity. Second, because the platform is interesting because of the agility in sharing games: you share the title you are playing on the social networks you already use, so that other users can click and access the games within the service, including from third-party applications such as Discord and Snapchat.

Right now, the list of games available on Now GG is still restricted to five titles. Although small, it already serves to give a dimension of the potential that streaming can deliver.
Successes like Minecraft, Toca Life World, Perfect World Mobile e GachaLife share space with Roblox, the Roblox Corporation game that is a worldwide success and currently has more than 165 million monthly users, many under the age of 13 and whose growth was boosted during the pandemic.
With almost 15 years of existence, the “universe of dolls” grew in the pandemic. Recent data show that the number of daily active users of Roblox is 42.1 million and with that, Roblox Corporation’s revenue soared 140% from 2020 to 2021, while the number of daily active users grew by 37% over the same period.
Despite the striking numbers, the manufacturer of the game has not yet made a profit. In its fiscal balance, it was disclosed that in the 1st quarter of 2021 alone the company had losses of US$ 134 million, a surprising number for those who reached 202 million active users in 1 month in the same period.
