Hey #TeamShadow, 


The remote screen feature is now available on the Official app for Android! 


The goal is for you 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. Please note, you must launch your Shadow on your additional device after starting your Shadow on the original device.


Here are all the changelogs for this week 👇 



Shadow Official

Desktop - Launcher v4.30.6


  • Shadow Renderer v3.16.10

  • Added Wayland support on Linux. Some system adjustments need to be made. Go to the Help-center for more information.

Shadow Beta

inVM Components

New Features:

  • We changed the rules of the "Keep my Shadow’s graphics drivers updated" option. We will no longer automatically downgrade the drivers to a version tested by Shadow anymore if you decide to upgrade to a higher version. Please keep in mind, there’s a possibility that the driver you have installed is yet to be compatible with Shadow. This change will allow you to change environments more quickly.

Fixes and Improvements:

  • Security update of our components

  • Fixed the problem of blocked resolutions in FHD

  • Partial fix of the black screen problem when starting Shadow

  • Fixed minor and internal bugs
