The network quality status is an in-game overlay display in the upper right hand corner that is available in the latest GeForce NOW PC, Mac, and SHIELD apps. By default, these settings will appear when you are experiencing network quality problems.
To enable these settings, follow these steps.
- On PC and Mac, click on the gear icon to bring up NVIDIA Settings. You can choose to leave these enabled at all times or disable
- On SHIELD, launch a GeForce NOW game, and bring up the on-screen controls by holding the Start button on the NVIDIA gamepad, or pressing two fingers on the touch screen. Select the three ellipses and toggle the Networks warnings to leave these enabled at all times or disable
This is an example of the network quality status.
Here is what the different labels mean:
· Network quality bars. These are 4 bars that indicate a level of quality. These bars will be shaded in by your level of quality, with 0 being the lowest and 4 being the highest.
· Current streaming resolution and frames per second. This tells you the current mode you are running at based upon your internet bandwidth and network quality.
