Most Roblox players are probably aware of Now.gg an online platform that allows you to play Roblox games online. Now.gg is essentially a mobile cloud platform that runs mobile games, including Roblox, on its own operating system and provides an interface for players that allows them to play those games on their browsers both on PC and mobile devices.

What is the benefit of Now.gg?

Now.gg has the advantage of allowing you to use all the resources needed to run any mobile game, including Roblox. These resources will be available on Now.gg and not on your device. Roblox will run on both low-end smartphones or laptops, even though it costs data (in the case where you don't use WiFi), and may be slightly slower than other games.

Additionally, you won't have to download and install Roblox on your device to access its games.

At the same time, Now.gg allows Roblox players to access the game from school Chromebooks and laptops if the website is unblocked by the school firewall. In the past Now.gg was the best way to play Roblox unblocked but now it's being blocked in many schools and workplaces.

Another benefit of Now.gg is that as of the time of writing the service remains free for mobile players.


How does Now.gg work?

Now.gg can be compared to other online video game streaming platforms such as Amazon Luna, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and NVIDIA's GeForce Now. Now.gg targets mobile games, which it runs on the Cloud and allows users to control characters using their device's input.

Every time you pick a game from Now.gg's library a new instance of the game will be run and streamed on your browser.
