Samsung has decided to extend the experience of the PlayGalaxy Link app. In case you haven’t heard of this app before, it broadcasts a PC game to your Galaxy phone. This service is similar to services like Nvidia GameStream and team Link Anywhere.
The owners of the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 + were the first to get this service, and now the owners of the Galaxy S10 can join them. The list of supported devices will expand in early December when other devices will be added, including the Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy A90 and Galaxy Fold.
Availability has also been expanded regionally. PlayGalaxy Link now covers the following countries: South Korea, the United States, Britain, Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, France, Singapore, and Russia, which were initially available only in the USA and South Korea.
The PlayGalaxy Link app connects your phone directly to your computer using WiFi, 4G or 5G. This keeps the latency as low as possible, but if you find yourself in an area with intermittent connectivity, Adaptive FPS will do its job.
Because the game runs on your computer, you can get better performance and graphics without squeezing your phone’s battery. Also, you don’t have to pay twice for a game, once on the computer and again on your smartphone, but you can play on both systems, including resuming the game where you left it at home.
The PlayGalaxy Link app you install on your computer will automatically search for any games you have installed and will appear on your phone. You can add games manually as well. Note that Windows 10 is required. You’ll also need a Bluetooth or wired game controller. This was the details of the PlayGalaxy Link app became available for the owners of the Samsung Galaxy S10.
