Remote Galaxy Store

Remote Galaxy Store
Remote Galaxy Store allows you to view your apps in the Galaxy Store of another region or country. Not only can you view your localized app content, you can see what the top apps are in that country.

Remote Galaxy Store launches the Galaxy Store on a Samsung mobile device using Cloud Device Farm. Cloud Device Farm provides remote access to an actual Samsung device over the Internet. Remote Galaxy Store can be launched for Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Italy, Korea, Philippines, Russia, Spain, United Kingdom, and the U.S. Languages supported include English, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and traditional Chinese. For more information about multiple language support and localization, see App Promotion in Multiple Languages or watch the video.

Note: Your apps must be distributed to the country that you select. Otherwise, they will not appear in the Remote Galaxy Store. When you registered your app in Seller Office, you set these distribution countries. For more information about setting an app's distribution country, see the related pages for your app type (Android, Galaxy Watch, or Theme).
