Hey #TeamShadow, 


This week, we focused on improving the Shadow Official Desktop, Boxes, and iOS experience for you with various bug fixes and improvements.  


In Beta, we’ve decided to update our components more regularly to improve the reliability of our teams when problems may arise.


Here are all the changelogs for this week 👇 



Shadow Official

Desktop - Launcher v4.29.15 

Fixes and Improvements:

  • Hotfix speedtest for new DCs

Boxes - Launcher v4.29.12


  • Shadow Renderer v3.15.18

New Features:

  • Remote screen (formerly "extra screen" in Alpha, remastered). The aim is to be able to use another device as an additional screen, without having to plug it to the main unit. Simply launch the same Shadow account on both devices and you'll be prompted to activate the feature.

  • Improved the Send Logs feature if your friends in the Support or moderation teams ever ask you for them.

Fixes and Improvements:

  • Fixed a Bluetooth bug on the Shadow Ghost.

  • Support for Xbox controllers with their new update.

  • Fixed several minor bugs and crashes.

iOS - Launcher v3.9.4

New Features:

  • Remote screen - The goal is to be able to use another device as an additional screen, without the need to connect it to the main display. Simply launch your Shadow using the same account on both devices and you will be prompted to activate this feature. Note that you must launch your Shadow on your additional device after starting your Shadow on the original device.

  • Movie mode is now available on Shadow. After a few seconds of inactivity, the home indicator disappears, for a better content viewing experience.

  • Moved the Quick Menu button to avoid interfering with the multitasking button on the iPad.

Fixes and Improvements:

  • Mouse scrolling has been corrected when using an external display.

  • Mouse scrolling now works on iOS 15.

  • Improved behavior of VM shut down and restart when using an external display.

  • Improved rendering on Metal when the resolution of your Shadow is different from your phone screen.

  • A lot of bug fixes regarding controllers, menu interactions, cursor, etc.
