[Updated] Game Recorder+ records your gaming sessions on the Galaxy S6, S6 edge and other handsets
Smartphone manufacturers are particularly focusing on mobile gaming in their handsets these days as casual gaming on smartphones takes off, naturally people want to record their gaming sessions and share them with friends and family. Samsung has a solution for that it’s an app called Game Recorder+. The app was initially available only for the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge, which are mean mobile gaming machines as pointed out by Samsung in its latest promo, but now it’s available for more Samsung handsets.
Game Recorder+ has a floating UI is overlaid on top of any game from where it lets users easily record their gaming sessions in up to full HD 1080p resolution. Users can also trim the video after it has been recorded and take advantage of the front facing camera and built-in microphone to record their commentary over the game audio.
The app is capable of recording touch interactions and allows users to upload finished videos directly to YouTube. In countries like China where direct access to YouTube is not permitted the video is saved to the device’s gallery from where users can share it to other platforms. Users who have the Galaxy S6 or the Galaxy S6 edge can record noise-free gaming audio which disables the microphone temporary while the recording is in progress. Game Recorder+ is a free app available for the Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, Note 4, Note 3 and Note 2 in 161 countries from the Google Play and Galaxy App Store.
Update: We tried recording a gameplay video with Temple Run 2, and the final output was considerably laggy. The game itself ran fine when the recording was in progress, but the video didn’t come out as smooth. The app is still great for recording games and adding a video feed and voice commentary, but don’t expect the recorded videos to be too good, especially on high-end games.
