Is USB forwarding Oculus Quest possible
I want to know if it is possible to connect Oculus Quest to a computer running Shadow client. I know that there is a VR app for Oculus Quest but I’d like to use it with ethernet and since the OTG ethernet feature was removed from headset the only way I can think of is connecting to PC which has an ethernet connection.
What part should i replace/upgrade on this old pc?
Hi, so i got this old computer Click here for specification and i run it with an old Gpu (Nvidia 9800 GT). Ive been playing some games on it with Shadow, mostly Borderland and nowlots of Tiny Tina Wonderlands, but i notice that i lag alot, my internet is stable 1000/1000, so im all aware its about my crappy hardware. Do you guys have any idea what i might replace in this PC in order for it to perform better in shadow? like an ssd? give me ideas, i wont buy another computer, i just want this one to perform better than it does. Having a hard time telling what components that are compatible and so on. If you were stuck with this PC, what would u start with to change in order to perform better in Shadow? i dont wanna buy a new motherboard with cpu and stuff. So whats your thoughts?
Route audio output to headphones via Xbox or Stadia controller
Hi!This is more à feature request than a bug report.First of all: Shadow is working great on Chromecast with Google TV, so thank you for that!The only frustrating thing is that I was not able to switch to headphones thru my game controller…Indeed, Chromecast does not seem to redirect the audio to that jack audio out port, when I plug headphones into it. Except in the Stadia app, of course ;-)As the Shadow client seems to recognize the type of game controller, would it be possible to switch Windows audio output to the headphones port of the controller?

Portrait mode on iOS
This idea mainly comes from the newly added second screen support. I mostly use Shadow on my iPad Pro w/keyboard, and have my iPhone docked vertically on the desk next to me. I’d love to be able to move a social media window (like Twitter or Reddit) over to it. My iPhone 12 mini is a bit too small to read anything in landscape mode. Same goes for the iPad. When I don’t have it in my Magic Keyboard case, I’d like to be able to rotate it and have Windows automatically adjust. I don’t expect full tablet support (I’m sure that would have been done already if it were possible), but would be nice to have.
I've been using Windows 11 for months, works find
Hi everyone, I know that Windows 11 isn’t officially supported by Shadow yet but I installed it months ago and my Shadow seems to be working just fine since then, in fact I’d say that most of the time it’s been working better than with Windows 10.Any thoughts?
Access to camera on iPad Pro
I just subscribed to Shadow PC and I am loving it so far. The connection quality is great and finally I can use my iPad Pro like „It’s a PC“ 😀 I know that via RDP its possible to also use the iPad‘s camera for Zoom and Microsoft Teams - would it be possible to also include this feature in Shadow PC? Then it would become my one and only machine, both for gaming and productivity tasks
How I fixed Error R-108 on andriod stopping me from using shadow
After I got a warning about my data usage from T-Mobile my shadow app randomly stopped working on my pixel 2. It worked completely fine and I was able to stream No Mans Sky at Ultra detail with little to no lag. And I was exclusively using my unlimited cellular data no wifi. THE WORKAROUND:If you can connect to wifi and the app launches then it might be your provider blocking ya. So we need a simple VPN Proxy to stop this from happening. I downloaded Tomato VPN, it's free, no credit cards or purchases was needed for me to use it. It gives you an hour and a half of free VPN and you can add additional time by watching an ad. (Which if you do repeatedly you'll have hours upon hours of connection.) After downloading and running the app, you can choose were you want to be connected too. If I where you I would look at your shadow PC account and find out which location your shadow is located and match it to the VPN. (Ex. My shadow is in Chicago so my VPN is also set to Chicago) After do

Android flickering screen
I have put up with the shortcomings as far as using it on the Chromebook. The keys not binding, my inability to use shortcuts, the slow mouse at times that requires me to readjust, the useless scroll button, and I can’t use touch properly. But now, since the latest update, it’s flickering at times, making Shadow a paying service that I can’t use properly on a Chromebook, the main reason I got the Chromebook. So, is there some way that this is going to get fixed?Bad enough that Chromebooks are hardly supported, even though there’s a big message about it in the updates.

Add Docker Support to Shadow
I don’t need to explain Docker and its benefits, those at Shadow reading this already understand the value of Docker virtualization.I have had Shadow for over a year, and don’t have any major complaints. The recent price increase has put me in position to look at other options. I am at a cross roads where am considering replacing Shadow with a new high-end PC that can do Docker (and other things) that Shadow does not currently support. I got Shadow as a personal test drive to see if it would be a good alternative to buying a new high end gaming system. For over the past year, the answer has been yes. The answer has shifted to” “Questionable” because of the price increase.I understand that Shadow is geared toward gaming and is not intended for virtualization technology such as Docker. To justify the increase in monthly expense I would like to be able to do more than just gaming partly because I am spending money on other cloud services to get technology that Shadow currently does not su
Mouse Scrollwheel Not Working on iPad OS 15
Describe the bug (required) Upon upgrade to iPad OS 15, the scrollwheel of the Logitech bluetooth mouse connected to the iPad (12.9” Pro) does not work. It had worked prior to iPad OS 15. It also works on the MacOS client. The Windows Shadow system does not register the scrollwheel scroll input however it does recognize the click as Mouse 3. The scrollwheel is established as working in the iPad OS itself. In addition, since this update, Mouse 4 does not register being held down, only a single click. The scrollwheel should be supported and it’s inputs registered in the default behaviors of the Windows system, and should react appropriately in-game (tested it in Guild Wars 2). The mouse buttons 4-5 should recognize being held down until released. Steps to reproduce the bug (required) I tried the same mouse on the MacOS system and it registered the clicks in the desktop environment. I restarted shadow, the mouse and the iPad OS. The bug occurs 100% of the time on iPad OS/iOS 15
Issue using mouse & keyboard through USB on iphone 8plus
I have a usb combo keyboard/trackpad I can plug into my iphone, and while it works fine on the phone itself, when using the Shadow app on my phone the keyboard doesn’t seem to be recognized. The trackpad allows me to move the cursor around the shadow and such, but I can’t seem to do any typing. Is there something I can do to address this or is this an issue that would require an app update to resolve?
Status of Shadow on an ARMv8 x64 Rasberry Pi?
It was almost a year ago when Shadow announced that they would offer an operating system for the Raspberry Pi. What is the status of this project? If it is unlikely that the Pi OS will be released what are the chances of getting the OS for the Shadow Ghost publicly available?
