Those days look to be a thing of the past as now there is a one size fits all solution using GeForce NOW.

Before jumping in, it's important to know the version you will be playing on GeForce NOW is the full version of the game, as stated by HoYoverse. It includes all the content added since the game's initial release and will continue to receive updates in the future, including the 2.8 patch and the new region of Sumeru said to release sometime later in 2022.

To begin the setup for GeForce NOW, the first step is to ensure your HoYoverse account is registered and properly set up. From there, launch GeForce NOW on either your PC, Mac, or Chromebook, and after signing in, search from Genshin Impact, and launch the game.

After signing in to your HoYoverse account, you will be able to begin playing Genshin impact on any device of your choosing. A quick and simple process that lets you avoid the struggle of Mac's compatibility and Chromebook performance.

The last thing players should know, is that with the free tier of GeForce NOW, players can only play for an hourly session for free before GeForce NOW boots them out of the game. To gain access to longer gaming sessions, players need to purchase a subscription to the platform.
