Samsung has recently rolled out the One UI 6.0 Android skin for Galaxy S23 series users. The Android 14-based mobile operating system is now out of the beta program and has brought multiple changes. With this update, the South Korean tech giant has added a new One UI typeface and renamed several first-party apps. Samsung Game Launcher is one of the apps that now has a new name. Game Launcher will be called Gaming Hub on devices running the One UI 6.0 update.
The company explains: “The service will be named Gaming Hub starting with Android OS version 14, and earlier OSs will also be updated sequentially. Please note that on some OSs, “Game Launcher” and “Gaming Hub” may be used interchangeably in certain menus.”
Samsung may have other ‘plans’ for the app
Users shouldn’t confuse the mobile app with Samsung’s cloud-based gaming platform available on select smart TVs and The Freestyle 2nd edition portable projector. This TV platform is available in select regions and supports game syncing.
Meanwhile, the Gaming Hub mobile app is currently just a game launcher app and doesn’t have any titles or cloud gaming capabilities.
However, it is important to note that Samsung might be planning to turn Gaming Hub into much more than just a simple launcher app. According to a report by Sammobile, the company has said that the mobile app will be getting “many different features over time.”
“Gaming Hub aims to be a gaming platform that not only automatically groups your installed games and provides various convenient features, but also provides a more diverse gaming experience,” the company added.
The report notes that Samsung didn’t go into much detail about what games will be added to the app or if it will cloud gaming capabilities. It is important to note that the Gaming Hub app in One UI 6.0 has gone through no other changes and looks similar to the previous one.
