Apple Now Allows Game Streaming Apps on App Store Worldwide

Apple today announced that it now allows streaming game apps on the App Store worldwide, in response to feedback from developers. This will pave the way for services like Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce NOW to be available as standalone iPhone and iPad apps, whereas they were previously only accessible via the web.



“Developers can now submit a single app with the capability to stream all of the games offered in their catalog,” said Apple, in an announcement shared on its website.

Streaming game apps will need to maintain an age rating of the highest age-rated content included in the app, Apple says.

Apple also said mini-apps, mini-games, chatbots, and plug-ins will be able to use Apple’s in-app purchase system for digital content and services worldwide. For example, Apple says users could subscribe to an individual chatbot.
