Game Launcher update adds support for non-game apps and Android 12


Last updated: November 19th, 2021 at 15:58 UTC+02:00

Samsung is rolling out a new update for its Game Launcher app, which adds support for Android 12 and introduces a few changes to the UI and the app’s feature set. In addition, Samsung claims that the new update — version — fixes various issues and improves performance.

One of the biggest additions to Game Launcher with this latest update lets gamers add non-game apps to the “My games” list and hide the app’s shortcut from the home screen via Game Launcher settings.

Other additions include the option for Game Launcher to be used with child accounts that have limitations. Furthermore, with Game Launcher version, users can now swipe left and right on the “My games” window.

To grab the latest Game Launcher update, open the Samsung Galaxy Store app on your phone and look for new app updates. As always, the update is gradually reaching devices in more markets, so there’s a chance you may have gotten the update notification without getting the new app version itself. Just be patient and it should reach your device soon. Alternatively, head down to the APK section of our website, where you can download Game Launcher manually on your phone.

Game Launcher now supports Android 12, which is great news for Galaxy S21 owners running One UI 4.0. The Android 12 update was released earlier this week and continues reaching more markets as we speak, not unlike the Game Launcher update.
