Triple A gaming on the Note 10: game streaming to be available on Samsung's new top-tier phone!

Triple A gaming on the Note 10: game streaming to be available on Samsung's new top-tier phone!
Yesterday, Samsung dropped its hot new duo of phones — the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+. There’s a slew of new features and a focus on integration between Samsung products and Microsoft services. This all starts with the Samsung Notes integration with the Word suite and a brand-new “Link to Windows” feature, which allows you to seamlessly connect the Note 10 to a Windows PC and get notifications, reply to messages, or instantly transfer recent photos straight on your desktop.

What Samsung didn’t mention is the new PlayGalaxy Link feature. It will allow you to stream games from your PC right on your phone, so you can pick up a game from where you left off. The link will work over both your home Wi-Fi and cellular connection, so you can literally experience your game library from anywhere, so long as you have a stable connection. Now, that might drive some 5G sales better.

This is just the beginning, though. Word on the street is that the Samsung - Microsoft partnership will result in the ability to stream games from your Xbox library to the phone as well, similar to Stadia. This is just a rumor, but we do know that the team at Redmond is indeed preparing its own game streaming service to rival Google’s Stadia. Picking up a strong partner in the face of Samsung makes total sense and yesterday’s presentation showed that the two companies are in very good relations, with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella making a special appearance at the keynote — not to announce anything, but just to say how much they love Samsung.

We’d also like to remind you that Samsung announced a newly optimized Game Booster feature on the Note 10 as well as seamless Discord integration. Obviously, Sammy understands that its “powerusers” are not just business people or creatives, but gaming addicts as well. We are excited to see how PlayGalaxy Link works, though, we are skeptical that it would be lag-less. No other streaming service — not Sony’s PlayStation stream, nor Steam’s Steam Link — has achieved it thus far.

It's a phone ffs, why the hell would you want to stream any gaming content onto such a small display? or why would you want to stream s**ty mobile games onto a larger display? neither make any sense.

So ypu're saying you've never played games on a smaller screen. Got it. What year were ypu born? Because there have been portable consoles for years. Example, the Sega Game Gear was basically a portable Sega Genesis. TurboGrafx 16 also had a portable. The Playstation also had a portable and those all have console quality games on a smaller screen and no one complained. The smartphone screen is much larger and wider than any of those were. If you don't wanna use it then don;t. But to criticize it, and you haven't even tried it is just dumb. You're just pissed because whatever crappy @$$ phone you have can do this. Not that ytou would care if it could. Let us enjoy our toy dude. Yes I would love to be able to chill in my bed and play Xbox One games with having to have my laptop on the bedside table, or have my Surface in my lap. Tech progress. If you don't wanna progress with it, then stay behind bruh.
