I am sure those who make use of the app Game Recorder+ noticed that there was an update for the app listing today. But, I assume this was not the update you all have been waiting for since November. The update was to let us all know that Samsung plans to send the app the graveyard on February 28th, 2018. Game Recorder+ was launched back in 2015.
Game Recorder+ to get the boot
Those of you who are not familiar with what the app does, it is rather self-explanatory. The app allows one to record the screen as well as internal audio from the game, or external audio from the microphone.
Samsung has been cleaning up some of their unnecessary proprietary apps lately, and Game Recorder+ is the latest to go. Samsung hasn’t said precisely why it’s pulling this app. It could be that it never developed the kind of userbase that the company would have wanted for it.
Game Recorder+ users will no longer be able to record games from February 28th. They should back up the videos previously recorded via the app. If the app is deleted before backing up the videos then they will be deleted. The videos can be backed up by tapping on the save button on the recorded video. They will be saved in the Game Record folder on the handset.
For the heavy gamers into streaming, Samsung still has Game Live, which allows you to do just that; stream your gameplay using your Samsung device. Samsung’s other gaming-focused apps include Game Launcher and Game Tools.
Game Launcher neatly organizes all of your games in one place, allows easy downloads of new and popular games, as well as optimizes your device’s performance specifically for gameplay. Game Tools are in-game settings that allow you to block alerts during gameplay, screen record, screenshot, and eliminate accidental capacitive button presses.
