Game streaming is a hot topic among players, but the least likely competitor is going a different but not so new way to reach that goal. Samsung is not particularly interested in this emerging industry, but has a strong interest in making its Galaxy phones the portal to this PC-on-mobile gaming experience. That's why the company has partnered with Parsec to enable this game streaming experience without putting your games in the cloud and in the hands of others.
To a certain extent, PlayGalaxy Link, which uses parsec technology, is a mixture of Valve's Steam Link and the typical cloud gaming systems developed by NVIDIA, Google, and soon, Microsoft. Instead of installing the games on a remote cloud, they run on the user's own PC, which can be accessed via the same wireless network or remotely via 4G or even 5G.
That's why PlayGalaxy Link is offered completely for free. All costs are charged to the user, from the purchase of the game to the internet connection required for remote access. This means that the user is exposed to his own hardware and bandwidth, but at the same time their property.
Two software parts are required to create a PlayGalaxy Link shortcut. On the PC side is a Windows 1
Currently the apps are only available in the US and South Korea. Even more restrictive is the fact that the mobile app is currently only compatible with the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+. PlayGalaxy Link supports both on-screen controllers and Bluetooth controllers. However, Samsung recommends the new Glap controller specifically for this purpose.
