Mobile gaming has been around for as long as mobiles have, but the advent of power mini-computers in our pockets has changed it. Today we can play the most graphic-intense games on our smartphones, and to support this hobby, Samsung allows you to use Game Launcher on Galaxy devices.

However, since smartphones are not gaming consoles that do just one thing, phone calls, and constant notifications can be annoying. This is where the Game Launcher comes in to save the day, helping you significantly improve your mobile gaming experience.

How to Use Game Launcher on Galaxy Devices

From your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge device, head over to the app drawer and you will find the Game Launcher app preinstalled. Tap on the app icon and you will be able to see the games installed on your phone on a single screen.

It is also important to know that not all of your games will show up in the Game Launcher, and there is no way to add games yet. You will be able to see two toggle button right below the game screen – “No alerts during game” and “Game Tools”.

The first toggle will do just as it says and disable all alerts and sounds when a game is running in the foreground. However, the second option comes with some additional options, which is visible as a tiny floating button on the corner of the screen.
