Samsung has released PlayGalaxy Link, a streaming service available from the Galaxy Store on the Galaxy Note10 that allows you to bring your PC games with you on the go.

The new service goes beyond cloud gaming by allowing you to stream your game library to your device if you already have a powerful PC. With PlayGalaxy Link, Samsung is achieving a new level of gaming, enabling you to create a customisable streaming experience by connecting the Galaxy Note10 to your own powerful PC and the games you already own.

You can use the PlayGalaxy Link app on the Galaxy Note10 to connect to your PC using Wi-Fi or mobile data (4G/5G) and pick up right where you left off in the game.

When accuracy matters most, lag and latency will be less of a problem as PlayGalaxy Link is designed with a P2P connection which provides you with simplicity for better performance without a relay server. The service also uses Adaptive FPS to ensure better connectivity even in poor network environments.

However, it should be noted that speeds are dependent on your network connection and reliability will vary depending on local network providers and regional stability. You will also find major improvements to the longevity of their gaming sessions and device performance.

Without the need for local storage or graphics performance, you get high-fidelity gaming while only using about as much battery as streaming video. Since PlayGalaxy Link uses a PC to power your gaming session, the Galaxy Note10 avoids becoming hot and dropping frame rates as a result. PlayGalaxy Link is also compatible with all graphics card manufacturers, allowing you to get the best experience out of their gaming stations when linked to the app.

PlayGalaxy Link is expanding the opportunities for gaming on the go by opening up a library of PC exclusive titles for your mobile device. Whether you’re into casual side-scrollers or hardcore RPGs, you can extend your gameplay with both a game controller1 or a traditional keyboard connection.

Setting Up PlayGalaxy Link

Getting started with PlayGalaxy Link is easy. All you have to do to get set up is install the PlayGalaxy Link app on both your PC and Galaxy Note10, add your games, and then start streaming. For a better experience, you can connect wired or Bluetooth-enabled controllers to your device.

In addition to the Galaxy Note10, Galaxy S10 owners can now download the MR software update to access PlayGalaxy Link. The update will be coming to the Galaxy Fold, Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note9, and Galaxy A90 in early December 2019.
