Update 2: The Galaxy Fold, Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 9, and Galaxy A90 are now supported by PlayGalaxy Link. You can download the app from the Galaxy Store or our APK page.

Update: Compatibility with Android 10 has now been added in the latest PlayGalaxy Link beta release. Check our APK page linked in the original story below if you want to download the latest version, or grab it from the Galaxy Store.

Original story follows

Samsung is going to make the PlayGalaxy Link beta available to more devices in December, including the Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy A90, and the Galaxy Fold. PlayGalaxy Link is a streaming app that lets you stream your games from your PC to your smartphone and play them remotely over a Wi-Fi or mobile network (4G or 5G).

While it is already possible to stream your video games from your PC to your Galaxy device using PlayGalaxy Link’s underlying streaming platform Parsec, Samsung’s beta app has, so far, been limited to the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10 series. This will change next month when the beta program will, for the first time, become available on additional Galaxy devices.

PlayGalaxy Link beta remains limited to a handful of markets

PlayGalaxy Link beta is presently available in Australia, Canada, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, the US, and the UK. There’s no evidence that this will change next month when the beta program will encompass additional Galaxy smartphones, and it’s unclear when we can expect the streaming app to become available in more markets.

In any case, the service is aimed primarily at Samsung fans who own a reasonably-powerful computer, as the heavy lifting will be done by the PC itself. An Intel Core i5 CPU is recommended, along with 8GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GTX 1060 / AMD Radeon RX550 or better graphics cards.

If you already own a compatible Galaxy smartphone, all you need to do is download the PlayGalaxy Link beta app from the Galaxy Store or our APK page and visit the official PlayGalaxy website on your computer to download the companion Windows app on your PC.
