When it comes to playing PC games from your Android device, we’d know that this practice isn’t new as the “NVIDIA GameStream technology” lets us stream games from a GeForce GTX-powered PC to our Android device or TV. This concept however supports only the NVIDIA’s Android-based SHIELD device. But if you want to access and play your favorite PC games on your android device, then you can use a ‘third-party’ service known as “Remotr” to achieve this. Remotr brings the opportunity to enjoy PC games from our mobile with the same performance & visual quality.
