If your mates are all “video or it didn’t happen” when you describe your latest mobile gaming triumphs, Samsung has you covered – provided you have a compatible device.

Game Recorder+ gives game-lovers a utility to record and share the things that are important to them, like their new high score […] The ‘floating’ UI doesn’t require any rooting and is safe and easy. Users can choose resolution and bitrate speeds, and Game Recorder+ optimizes device memory when running for a smoother gaming experience

The app can record in up to 1080p full HD resolution, and you can record live audio commentary over the top of the game (muting the game audio is also possible on the Galaxy S6/edge only). Videos can be trimmed after recording … 


By default, the front-facing camera also records your face in a picture-in-picture format, but you can choose to replace this with a profile photo instead. Recorded video can be uploaded to YouTube or saved to a video gallery for manual upload to other sites.

Game Recorder+ is available on the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, Galaxy S5, Note 4, S4, Note 3 and Note 2 when running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and up. The app is a free download from the Google Play store.

If you don’t have a compatible Samsung device, Kamcord has long provided an SDK to allow developers to build recording into their own games for both general and competition use.
