Six tricks to take advantage of Samsung’s Game Launcher
The game through mobile has become a common practice among millions of users. Phenomena such as Fortnite or PUBG Mobile are a good proof of this and manufacturers are increasingly centralizing efforts to improve this playable experience through their devices.
One of them is Samsung, who is committed to its Game Launcher to improve the experience when playing. We are going to give you some tips and advice to get the most out of Game Launcher since on many occasions we do not squeeze all its possibilities.
Add applications individually
When we download a game, Samsung automatically adds it to Game Booster. However, we can add games manually and even applications. To do this, we open Game Booster and go to the list of games in the Library. Here we click on the three-point menu and we will ‘add applications’.
Game Launcher options are designed for games, but we can add applications to enjoy these benefits within them.
What is the use of adding applications to Game Booster? To enjoy the gaming benefits offered by Samsung within them. For example, you can add WhatsApp and enjoy the Game Booster pop-ups to watch a YouTube video, record the screen directly from the app, make Samsung learn about the usage patterns you have with these apps, etc.
Make the library open by default
When we open Game Launcher, we access an extensive catalogue of games that are downloaded from the Samsung application store. However, we may want Game Launcher to function as an optimizer and launcher for our games, not as a store, so we can configure our library to open by default.
To configure this, we have to open the Library settings (not those of the Game Launcher itself). They are when opening the Library, in ‘Library Settings’, just below the options that we have configured before. Here we will see the option ‘Show Library on the opening’, and configure ‘open in full screen’.
Prioritize performance or energy savings
By default, Game Launcher prioritizes performance in games, allocating resources so that it runs with the highest possible FPS rate in a stable manner. However, there may be situations in which we have little battery and do not want to give up some games, or that we have a high-end processor and want a more balanced profile.
To configure this, we must go to the Game Launcher settings and click on ‘Game Performance’. This will open the options of Game Booster, the optimized Samsung games. In this menu, we find several settings, the most interesting, ‘game performance’. Here we will see the profiles’ Prioritize energy saving ‘,’ Balanced ‘,’ Performance.
Create albums with game captures
If you play any delivery and take a screenshot, it will be added to your gallery as one more screenshot. However, with Game Launcher we can get the screenshots to be added to the game’s albums.
With the game open, click on the Game Launcher icon and take the screenshot. This will be added to an album with the name of the game, so we can manage all the captures we have made in the game within the same section. Remember that, in addition to being added to the Samsung Gallery, within the files of your terminal you will find the folder, so it will be easy to find if we connect the mobile to the PC.
Block notifications and brightness during the game
With Game Launcher we can configure the elements that are locked while we are playing a game. To do this, we open the game we want and run Game Launcher. We will see an option called ‘Block during the game’. We have to click on the letters of the option. By giving it, we can configure five main points.
- Full-screen gestures
- Automatic brightness
- Edge content
Configure pop-up panel applications
The pop-up panel allows you to open applications to work at the same time you use a game. For example, you can take a Fortnite while watching other Gameplays, or answer a WhatsApp while you race on PUBG Mobile. When you open Game Launcher in a game, you will see these applications at the top of the screen.
These apps have their own menu, so we can configure which ones we want to appear and in what order. Remember that you can only choose four, so choose well which ones you want to have on hand when you are playing.
