Ah sorry for the delay... not receiving dev notifications on my email for some reason.

You can read pageProps on _app.tsx ( and add that to a global provider. You can read that with useContext on any componeny you want!

Do it on the render function though. If you add a custom getInitialProps on _app.tsx you disable all kinds of static optimizations!
