AMD Link is a way to connect to your PC from any other device either mobile, smart TV, or Windows device. It has just been majority updated in the newest AMD Software update. So we show you how to enable AMD Link and how to use it. The feature allows you to control your computer from your mobile and game anywhere, use voice recognition, and track performance metrics. If you’re looking for more performance from this update, also check on how to enable RSR for a boost in FPS.

Another part of it is Link Game, which allows a friend to connect to your PC. It will act as a second controller in any game that you are playing similar to what Steam Link offers. So if a game doesn’t have an online multiplayer you can appreciate some couch co-op from afar and in a more broad range of software.

The supported mobile devices that can run AMD Link are phones and tablets running iOS 12.0 and above or Android 7.0 and above. For the TV app, you require a 4th and 5th gen Apple TV running tvOS 12.x and greater or Android TV 7.0 and greater. Then for PC, you require a Windows 10 or 11 system with an AMD Radeon Polaris-based GPU or newer.
