Samsung has announced that PlayGalaxy Link is now available to flagships besides the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+. This service involves a wireless connection that puts games from a PC onto a mobile device's screen. It is in fact based on Parsec, which is compatible with more Android devices, but is presumably more optimized for phones of the same brand.

Samsung and the company behind this streaming service collaborated on the PlayGalaxy Link variant so that it could debut alongside the Note 10 series. However, it is now also compatible with the Galaxy S10, S10+, S10e, and S10 5G via its latest beta.

This version of the app (PlayGalaxy Link v1.0.5 Beta) also brings general improvements to the service and adds an auto-update feature to the PC end of the arrangement. However, the entire facility may only work in certain markets, including South Korea, Singapore, the Netherlands, Italy, France, Canada, the US and the UK. Then again, those outside these regions could also just download the Parsec app instead.
