Hey #TeamShadow!  


We are almost ready to push the dual screen feature into Beta testing. We’re not that far from its release, as it just needs a bit more time in development. In the meantime, we are making USB Over IP and its driver’s installation path more stable so please feel free to test this out on our Beta app!


In this new update for the Android App, we removed the first page of the quick game’s launcher. It will come back in another form later. Moreover, we have reworked the settings, now when you are going to apply a setting, we will update your Shadow directly to avoid conflicts on our side. In addition, we have added two new options, streaming protocol (TCP or UDP) and audio quality.


Here are all the changelogs for this week:  


Shadow Official - Android - Launcher v3.6.4

Fixes and Improvements:

  • Removed games quick launcher

  • Added streaming protocol (TCP/UDP) and audio quality settings

With Dual Screen coming to beta, is there any possibility of the Secondary Screen feature moving over as well? That would allow us to use Secondary Screen on Android as there isn't an Alpha version for mobile.

Second screen working great on my iPad AIR. Wow, this is an awesome setup to have. Just need to get my mouse scroll wheel to work :-)
