Samsung’s Game Launcher and Game Tools are two unique features that launched inside the Galaxy S7 and will soon be available in the Galaxy Note 7. Samsung recently the applications for its older phones, including the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6, according to SamMobile.

If you’re unfamiliar with Game Launcher, it basically provides a one-stop smart folder for all of your games. When you download a new game, it appears right inside the Game Launcher automatically. It also has some smart functions, including the options to turn off alerts before you start a game, view top player charts, check out featured videos and more.

Game Tools, which is also launching for the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S7, is a separate part of Game Launcher that adds even more control. With it, you can minimize the game you’re playing, take a screen shot, record your gameplay to share, lock your capactive keys so you don’t accidentally back out of a game, and more.

They’re pretty useful functions, so if you find yourself gaming a lot on your Note 5 or Galaxy S6, be sure to check them out. Look for them both in Samsung’s Galaxy Apps store.
