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?
The main benefit of using Now.gg is that the resources required to run any mobile game on the platform and in our case Roblox will be used on Now.gg platform and not on the user’s device. So at the cost of mobile data (in case you don’t use WiFi) and in some cases a slightly slower experience, you will be able to run Roblox on low-end smartphones and laptops that would struggle to run the game on the device.
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?
You can think of Now.gg as a platform similar to online video game streaming platforms like Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, Amazon Luna, NVIDIA’sGeForce Now, Sony PlayStation Now, and Google Stadia. In Now.gg’s case the primary targets are mobile games that the platform runs on the Cloud while providing the ability to use their devices’ input to control characters.
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.
How to use Roblox Now.gg?
To play Roblox on Now.gg you will have to visit the app’s page on the cloud platform. Once there press the pink “Play in browser” button. Roblox will now start loading and the game will eventually take to you to its login page. You can use your Roblox username and password to log in and then you will be redirected to your Roblox profile.
From there, you can browse the avatar shop and search for any Roblox experiences including some of the most popular ones like Shindo Life, All Star Tower Defense, Grand Piece Online, and more. You can press the green play button to launch the experience on your browser and play, just like you would with any online browser game.
