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
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?
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?
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?
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?
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.
Yes, you can play Shadow on many, many, many devices. Yes, it is amazing. Will it work on your car’s screen? Who knows! Well… us and the rest of the #TeamShadow might know! In order to help each other out, please tell us in the comment section below which device you successfully used Shadow on! And to answer your question: we do have specific hardware and software requirements to make Shadow work that should tell you if it will work on your device: Device Requirements for Shadow And if you’re feeling generous, we’d love to see you come by the Shadow Setups topic to share pictures of your device experimentations. 🙃
So you’re trying to connect your controller to your Shadow but can’t seem to figure out how? Here are some links to popular controllers we support, and how to connect them. How to connect a controller (Xbox, PS4, Nintendo and other controllers) We also have another post here that you might like! There are a ton of devices that can be supported by Shadow.

If you set up virtual desktop with your quest 2 like I did and found your entire shadow PC missing it's sound here is how I fixed it in just 1 click Go to the VR desktop app and open it. Click on Audio Streaming and make it Headset & Computer Also unclick the "use virtual driver " box as well" This worked immediately for me
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
😀 Will Shadow ever consider developing an app for Xbox? This has come across my mind a lot, and it would actually be the perfect solution for me. I use my Xbox Series X on my desk and have it connected to my monitor/keyboard/mouse for gaming. If I could run Shadow PC on it, then it becomes a full gaming PC for me as well! That would save me the $$$ to buy another gaming PC and also save the space on my desk. Will this be a dream come true one day, or will this stay as a dream forever? 😂
