Everyone gets a streaming service!

Today, Samsung announced the latest streaming service that has been thrown into the ring: PlayGalaxy Link, which will allow those with a Samsung Note10 or Samsung Galaxy S10 to stream PC games onto their phone. 

To set it up, all one has to do is install the PlayGalaxy app on their PC and Galaxy S10 or Note10 device. The games will add themselves via the PC app, and then you can start streaming. While you can play games via touch control, Samsung recommends a wired or Bluetooth controller, or even a special Samsung-built controller specifically made for Samsung devices. However, the controller is only available in America and Korea right now, and only through the Samsung Mobile Accessory Partnership Program. 

 

In order to stream games, somewhat beefy specs are needed. Windows 10, a GTX 1060 or RX 550 or higher, an Intel Core i5, 8GB of DDR 4 memory, and a Gigabit router are all required. Nothing crazy, but if your 10-year-old laptop can't play Crysis, it definitely won't be able to play Crysis and stream it to your phone.

While Samsung is initially targeting its Samsung Galaxy 10 and Note 10 series, the update will also be coming to the Galaxy Fold, Galaxy S9, Galaxy Note9, and Galaxy A90 in early December 2019. 

 

The service is currently available in the US, Korea, Canada, UK, Italy, France, Netherland, Russia, Singapore, and Australia on the Galaxy Store for those with Samsung Galaxy S10 and Note10 phones. Be sure to download it on both your gaming PC and your Samsung device in order for it to work.

What do you think of this news? Are you going to try streaming it from your Samsung device? If you don't have a Samsung phone, do you want one now? Let us know in the comments!
