Moonlight for ChromeOS

Moonlight for ChromeOS is an open source client for NVIDIA GameStream, as used by the NVIDIA Shield.

Moonlight for ChromeOS allows you to stream your full collection of games from your powerful desktop to another PC or laptop running ChromeOS.

For Windows, Mac, and Linux, we recommend running the new PC port for maximum performance.
