Playing an online game on the bus. Or in a city park. In a doctor's waiting room. There are many examples of where gamers' favourite games were not accessible.
Blacknut, Post's cloud gaming partner, announced in a press release on Thursday that the incumbent operator has become the first in the world to offer the possibility of playing games on its iPhone or iPad.
To achieve this, the experts from both companies used a technology developed by Google since 2015, the PWA, or progressive web app, which gets around the impossibility of accessing a certain type of game in a mobile situation. And which even allows you to start on your iPhone and continue on your computer at home.
"Apple's stance on cloud-native gaming apps has been well publicised, preventing gamers from accessing streaming services via normal app channels. No mobile operator wants to launch a service that doesn't have as many subscribers as possible, so it was important that we found a solution. Now iPhone users can have fun and experience cloud gaming the way it should be," said Olivier Avaro, CEO of Blacknut.
Launched last October, Post's 5G Power offering has already exceeded the group's expectations, said Post Telecom director . And this breakthrough allows us to serve them even better. Players will have access to Blacknut's catalogue of 500 games.
