Game Launcher update brings support for DeX

Samsung has issued an update for its Game Launcher application, which transports support for DeX, as well as a plethora of bug fixes and stability improvements. Don’t rush to install it though, as the feature is pretty much useless at this precise moment in time.

When you attempt to play a game listed in the “Supported by DeX” section of Game Launcher, it opens but doesn’t recognize that there’s a keyboard and mouse attached, leaving you unable to progress beyond the title screen.

There’s a good chance that Samsung prematurely flicked the switch on the update, so we expect it to roll out a separate upgrade to introduce support for peripherals in the not-too-distant future.

We’ll have to wait and see.
