Cloud gaming services are all set to storm the market, but before that, there are various ways to experience the game streaming services for cheap or free. The latest addition to this race is PlayGalaxy Link, which is exclusive to Samsung’s Galaxy devices. Similar to Parsec or Steam Link app, the user must install the client’s application on PC and in the handset to start the stream. According to the notes from XDA-developers, this gaming feature was already available for Samsung Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, S10 5G, and S10e in beta. Now the service is formally available for S9, note 9, Galaxy A90, and S9+.

The new service is simple to use, and it requires a good Wi-Fi router or stable 5G connection for seamless gameplay. With PlayGalaxy Link, users can take their PC games on the go, and the service is known to go beyond cloud gaming. The service allows the users to stream games from their PC games library, and the company is well poised to achieve a new level of gaming. Users can get a customized experience by connecting their Galaxy device to a powerful PC to play pre-owned games. The latency seems great in PlayGalaxy Link because it is designed with a P2P connection for better performance, without the need for a relay server.
