Galaxy S7 edge

Samsung's Game Launcher made its debut earlier this year on the Galaxy S7, and the app is now picking up an update that introduces a new user interface and a discovery feature. Game Launcher lives as a separate folder icon, and the app automatically collates all the games installed on your phone. The service provides a set of tools designed to minimize frustrations while you're in a game, and as such you have the ability to disable the back and recent keys, disable alerts, record in-game video, take screenshots, and more.

With the update to version 2.0, Samsung is rolling out Game Discovery, a recommendation service that suggests games based on your preferences. Then there's My Diary, which analyzes and logs your scores over time. The interface now has a more opaque background, making it easier to read text.

The update also allows you to add non-gaming apps to the Game Launcher folder, if you're interested in using the Game Tools features with other apps. Game Launcher is pre-installed on the Galaxy S7, S7 edge, S7 active, Note 5, Galaxy A8, and the Galaxy C series. It is available to download from Galaxy Apps for the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, and S6 edge+.
