Hey #TeamShadow,


We’ve been hard at work to make Shadow even better for you!


We are now adapting the Windows scale factor to your local device! No need to do anything, it's completely automatic and relies on the local display settings of your Windows, macOS of Linux device. Feel free to test this feature out in our Beta app for Desktop launchers.


Here are all the nitty-gritty details for this week:  


Shadow Beta - Desktop + Boxes - Launcher v4.17.14


  • Shadow Renderer v3.4.61

  • Shadow Streamer v3.3.11

Fix & Improvements

  • A small update that fixes a problem with the display of the current screen in the Quick Menu and the fix of a crash for Mac users

  • Audio streams are now more resilient to packet loss

  • Unsupported screens should not crash Windows anymore

  • Remove duplicated resolutions in the available resolution list

  • Fix TCP stream that was not working on some bad quality connections


Shadow Beta - iOS - Launcher v3.1.2 

Fix & Improvements

  • Fixed an issue with mouses that were no longer working on iOS 14.0.1.
