THE Samsung announced without much fanfare the service PlayGalaxy Link during the event Galaxy Note 10+: This free application allows you to stream games from your PC to your phone. The connection can be made via Wi-Fi, 4G or 5G; it is initially available to users in the U.S. and South Korea. The service is similar to Steam Link.
To use PlayGalaxy Link, you must have a Galaxy Note 10 or Note 10+; the official website says that “other Galaxy phones will be available soon”. In addition, the user must have a Windows 10 computer; Intel Core i5 processor or higher; video card Nvidia GTX 1060, AMD Radeon RX550 or newer; and at least 8 GB of DDR4 RAM.
The user will have to install a program on the PC and another on the cell phone (available through the Galaxy Store). He logs in with the Samsung account on both devices and, on Note 10, taps “START” to connect to the computer.
PlayGalaxy Link supports Bluetooth controls, mouse and keyboard; it is also possible to play with customizable on-screen controls. He cannot automatically discover Steam games; you will need to add them manually.
This is a service similar to Valve’s Steam Link, which works on more platforms: there is an app for Android 5.0 Lollipop or later, iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.
I wouldn’t expect to see PlayGalaxy Link on Apple platforms, but I hope it will reach more countries. For now, it is in beta and can be used in the US and South Korea.
