Developer d3m3vilurr is back with an update to the ever popular Vita Moonlight application that allows us to stream our PC games to our Vita consoles. This is a minor update addressing issues that people were having connecting to older versions of GeForce Experience. If you are one of those people who stayed behind on GFE updates because of the many “improvements” that nVidia added into their desktop application, this update might fix any issues you had.
If you had no issues with Vita Moonlight or connecting it to your computer you probably don’t need to update. While this update is mostly optional it is still advisable since the application was updated to support the latest VitaSDK.
What is Vita Moonlight?
Moonlight is an open-source implementation of the nVidia GameStream client that allows you to stream your Steam games (and some non-steam ones) to a mobile device of your choice. It allows for high-quality streaming with minimal to no input lag of your PC games. Originally the GameStream system only allowed to stream to nVidia Shield devices, but Moonlight allowed people to stream to their favorite devices and now we can use it on our Vitas too. You can check is your GPU is supported here.
