Everybody trusts individuals weren’t depending on Samsung’s PlayGalaxy Link to play their PC games on their phone. Samsung has unobtrusively declared (so discreetly that most didn’t see the news in late February) that it’s closing down the game streaming service on March 27th. The Korean tech giant didn’t clarify why other than “internal policy changes,” however it trusted the closure would let it “more effectively focus its resources” toward new products.
There might be a simple clarification. Samsung has just uncovered that it’s collaborating with Microsoft on a game streaming encounter that should make a big appearance later in 2020. It wouldn’t be astounding if Samsung considered that to be more feasible and chosen to close down PlayGalaxy Link to avoid duplicating efforts.
Samsung’s service previously confronted hardened odds. Between direct competition like Valve’s Steam Link as well as subscription services like Google Stadia and GeForce Now (which have there a lot of issues), there’s not as much requirement for PlayGalaxy Link – particularly when others aren’t as intently attached to a particular phone brand. The Microsoft collaboration could prompt a superior service that stands a greater chance of competing with incumbents.
