Record your mobile gaming sessions with Samsung's Game Recorder+, now available on select Galaxy devices

Game Recorder+ is now available for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 2.

The app comes with a slew of features, such as the ability to capture video and audio commentary through your device's front camera and microphone. If you're on the Galaxy S6 or S6 edge, you'll be able to record in-game audio directly from the source as well. The app has built-in tools that allow you to trim and upload videos directly to YouTube, and there's a Game Boost feature that optimizes games.

As for supported titles:

Games from GALAXY Apps and Google Play are supported. If you do not see any of the games you have installed, you can manually register games from the list of installed apps and then record them. However, you cannot record games for which recording has been disabled at the developer's request or applications that are not games.

Recording through the utility is fairly standard. Once you launch Game Recorder+, you'll see a red Record button at the bottom of the home screen, which you can use to start and stop a recording session. You can configure video resolution, audio bitrate, as well as YouTube sharing settings directly from within the client. You can also launch your favorite games from within Game Recorder+, and the Quick Record mode (enabled by default) enables you to start recording from the get-go.

There are alternatives available (opens in new tab) for those looking to record in-game footage on non-Galaxy devices.

  • How is this different from an app like Shou, which does the same thing? (Besides the added fluff like YouTube upload and other stuff like game booster) If someone can explain, that'll be thankful.
  • Shou requires root for many features and many other screen recorder apps also don't record the internal sound without root. But it might be worth mentioning that this app isn't available in Europa and Korea.
  • Ah, right. That explains why when I used Shou to record gameplay footage on my One M7, it had sound. Probably because it was rooted and running a custom ROM. Thanks.
  • most android screen recorder under 5.0 version need root authorize the app access for screen recording, however, SmartPixel has developed an one click authorization tool to record the android screen without root, that's amazing.
