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.

Apple also announced that 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.Tag: App StoreThis article, “Apple Now Allows Game Streaming Apps on App Store Worldwide” first appeared on MacRumors.comDiscuss this article in our forums
