Merging the Steam Client vs WG Client: For GeForce NOW Users

Why is the Steam WG client different than the WG Client? 

If you open it via Steam, it forces you to create a new account.

This has implications for Geforce NOW users who are streaming as the Geforce Now Forums were flooded with requests for the Geforce admin engineers to update the WG Client on their cloud machines once every lil patch goes live. They have taken 4 days for Update 0.9.1.0 and taken 36 hours for Update 0.9.1.1 

While this may be a GeForce Now issue and has been discussed in their forums, people has noticed the Steam client is immediately updated but given the log in screen (shown above) is locked to creating a new account, it prevents people from immediately accessing an updated version. 

Can WG allow the Steam client to have a login screen that doesn't only allow new account creations? 

See the number of posts that were on the Geforce Now forums regarding the slow WG client upgrade.

There is a way to link them but I don't know how, I just use the WOWs client.

Unfortunately, Geforce Now users are unable to modify the Steam files on the cloud machines to link them.

 

I have tried the WOT Blitz Steam Login method but that did not work either.
