Boosteroid (Mac)

What is Boosteroid for Mac?

Boosteroid is an innovative gaming platform that can be used for Mac gaming as it harnesses the power of cloud technology to offer Mac users an extensive library of games that they can play directly from their browsers. This is a game-changer for Mac users, as many Windows-based games are not supported on macOS. Boosteroid allows you to bypass these limitations, making it possible to play a wide range of games on your Mac regardless of your system’s hardware specifications.

One of the main challenges Mac users face when attempting to play Windows games is compatibility. Traditionally, it has been quite difficult to run these games on Mac systems. Boosteroid’s cloud gaming technology overcomes this issue by connecting your Mac to a remote gaming rig, where the game is actually being run. The gameplay is then streamed to your Mac, allowing you to control the game without it being installed on your machine.

This approach to gaming offers two significant benefits. First, it enables you to play games that are unsupported on macOS. Second, it allows you to play games that have minimum requirements that your Mac might not meet. The only real requirement for using Boosteroid is a stable and reasonably fast internet connection, as the gameplay is streamed to your device. This is especially important for multiplayer games, as a slow connection could result in lag and high ping times.

What sets Boosteroid apart?

There are several cloud gaming services available, but Boosteroid stands out due to its ease of use and accessibility. You can use the service on virtually any device with a browser, making it a versatile option for gamers. In the following section, we’ll guide you through the process of setting up a Boosteroid account and using it to play a variety of games on your Mac.

Is there a Boosteroid Mac app?

Yes, this cloud gaming platform offers a dedicated Boosteroid Mac app that is compatible with macOS 10.13.6 and later versions and can be downloaded from the service’s website.

One advantage of the Boosteroid Mac app is that it can potentially reduce package loss some users may experience while using the service through their browsers. This is mostly relevant if your Internet connection isn’t too stable, and you are encountering image quality drops and latency issues. In such cases, using the app may provide a performance improvement. On the other hand, if you have a stable Internet, it shouldn’t matter too much whether you use Boosteroid through its app or through your browser.

Boosteroid requirements

  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Browser: The platform works with most modern browsers, but our extensive tests have shown that Chrome and Firefox are the best options for gaming with Boosteroid.
  • Internet connection: 
    • Your Internet should have a speed of at least 15Mbps and latency of no more than 20 ms to play games with 1080p, 60 FPS, and good responsiveness.
    • It’s recommended to use cable (Ethernet) connection.
    • If you have Wi-Fi Internet, then it’s recommended to use a 5GHz channel (2.4 GHz still gets the job done, but may provide lower image quality).
    • It’s recommended that you aren’t downloading or uploading anything or streaming any videos while using Boosteroid in order to leave more bandwidth available for the service.
    • To improve performance, it’s advised to have as few open browser tabs and windows as possible.
  • Paid subscription to Boosteroid: This is a paid service, so in order to use it, you must have started your paid subscription to it. The registration to Boosteroid itself is free, so you can have an account without being subscribed, and you can start and cancel a subscription at any time.

Additional notes:

  • When using the Boosteroid gaming platform, it’s important to remember that subscribing to the service doesn’t grant you complimentary access to its entire library of games. To enjoy a paid game on Boosteroid, you must already own it in a compatible game store (Steam, Epic, Origin, etc.). However, not all games available on Boosteroid can be played from every store that offers them. So, before subscribing to Boosteroid, double-check whether your desired game is accessible through the specific store in which you own it.
  • Keep in mind that even if a game is free, you’ll still need to register on the distributing game store or the game’s official website (e.g. Steam for CS:GO or DotA 2, or Riot Games for League of Legends) to play it through Boosteroid.
  • Although it’s possible to use Boosteroid if your system doesn’t meet all the requirements, you may experience performance issues during gameplay. So, be prepared for potential hiccups if your setup isn’t fully optimized for Boosteroid’s service.
