All of Your Games in One Place with Game Launcher

From pixelated classics to virtual reality, gaming has come a long way. Your phone can offer even more opportunities to explore your favorite digital worlds. The Game Launcher houses all your gaming apps and includes settings to improve your gaming experience. 

Available screens and settings may vary by wireless provider and software version

Download Fortnite from Galaxy App Store

Fortnite is the biggest thing in gaming right now, and now you can be a part of the zany action, thanks to your Galaxy phone. Follow the steps below to download Fortnite and join the fun.

Navigate to Apps, touch the Samsung folder, and then touch Galaxy Apps. Search for and select Fortnite Installer, and then touch INSTALL.

Open the Fortnite Installer app, agree to the permissions needed, then touch LAUNCH to start Fortnite after the game downloads and installs.

Set Up Game Launcher

Before you get too excited and rush into your game, let's set up the Game Launcher. 

From Settings, search for and select Game Launcher. To use the Game Launcher, touch the slider. If you want to add the Game Launcher icon to your Home screen, touch ADD.

Open Game Launcher from Apps. Review the information and then touch NEXT. Review the Terms of Service and if you agree, select I agree to all and then touch START. Review the following information, and then touch ENABLE. Game app icons will now be displayed in the Game Launcher. 

Your Game Launcher setup is complete. So let the gaming begin!

If you have a game that hasn't been added, you can add it manually by touching More Options > Add apps. Select the app(s) you want to add, and then touch ADD.

Note: If Game Launcher is not available in the Settings menu, you must install and launch a game first.

Game Tools

Whether you are playing an RPG or a simple puzzle game, there are many tools to help you game on.

Navigate to Apps, and then touch Game Launcher.  Select and start the desired game. Touch the Game Tools icon on the lower left-hand side of the screen. Then select and adjust your desired settings. 

Tune Performance

Battery power efficiency may vary by game.

With Game Launcher, you can tune the performance level of your games to save battery power. If you are stuck on a long trip with no charger, you can make a game's performance a little lower, so you can get more battery life. But hey, the game will still be awesome.

Open Game Launcher, and then touch Game performance. Drag the slider to your desired performance level. You can also set individual settings for each game by selecting Settings for each game. Touch APPLY to save the changes.

Navigate to Apps, and then touch Game Launcher. Select and start the desired game. Touch Game Tools, and then touch Record. To stop recording, touch Stop.

Share Recording

You've recorded some good clips, and you are ready to become the next YouTube sensation. Follow these steps to start sharing them on different social media sites.

Sound Set

Maybe you don't like the music or sounds in that horror game. That's no problem with the new Mute feature.
