Exclusive: Samsung to release improved Game Launcher with tons of new features


Last updated: June 15th, 2016 at 16:42 UTC+02:00

Samsung started focusing on mobile games with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, which are the first smartphones in the world to support the Vulkan API for 3D graphics. The company introduced Game Launcher and Game Tools with its latest flagship smartphones, but it isn’t stopping there. Samsung will soon launch an improved version of Game Launcher with tons of new features for mobile gamers.

The new version of Game Launcher will bring Game Scene, a full-screen section where all the installed games are listed in a tiles format along with a separate area for game notifications. There will be a dedicated area in the Game Launcher where trending games are showcased. Any game can be marked as a favorite, while others can be pinned to their current locations in the list.

The list of games can be sorted in multiple ways, and manual arrangement will also be possible with Game Scene. Users will be able to subscribe to specific YouTube channels for things such as video walkthroughs. Apps, web links, and images can also be listed in Game Scene.

Moreover, the Game Tools floating button inside games will also show battery percentage, free storage, and RAM consumed so that gamers can stay informed about these parameters at all times. Meanwhile, the ability to record gameplay and share it on social networks will become easier after the update.

What do you think of the new features Samsung will be introducing to Game Launcher? Do you use Game Launcher and Game Tools on your Galaxy S7 or S7 edge?
