Earlier this year in May, OnePlus released a major update for the OnePlus Game Space app. The update introduced a couple of new features, including new sections for Instant Games and Game Statistics. Now, Samsung is rolling out a similar update for its Game Launcher app, which adds a new tab for Instant Games and a section for in-game notifications.

The feature was recently spotted by @testingcatalog on Twitter, who shared the following screenshots. The screenshots reveal that the Samsung Game Launcher now has a new section that lists down all the Instant Games available on the app. These games require no installation and can be played immediately by just tapping on the Play button next to them.

A vast majority of the new Instant Games in Samsung’s Game Launcher are provided by FRVR Games, including titles like Drag Race FRVR, Basketball FRVR, Hex FRVR, Gold Train FRVR, and more. As of now, it isn’t clear if the app hosts Google Play Games’ library of Instant Games.

The Samsung Game Launcher has also received a new tab for in-game notifications. You can access the tab by tapping on the menu button in the top right corner and then selecting the new Game notifications option.

The tab lists down all the notifications pushed by the games installed on your device. The notification section requires separate system permissions to work and it gives you the option to filter notifications by date or by game.
