Medal Game Recorder Launches Globally, Extends Short-form Gameplay Sharing Service to Mobile
LONG BEACH, Calif. – April 22, 2020 – Medal.tv, the leading platform for sharing short-form gaming videos, has today launched the Medal Game Recorder Android app. Medal Game Recorder is the quickest and easiest way to record and share gaming moments and highlights on any Android device.

“Creators, now and in the future, will capture where the best content is. We see Android as a key platform for current and future gaming experiences” said Pim de Witte, CEO of Medal.tv. “Medal was founded to make games more discoverable and bring people closer together. The saturation of the mobile market, with new games launching constantly, presents a discoverability problem for both players and developers. More and more, players are looking to friends for recommendations on what to play next and moments captured in video are the best way to communicate that.”
The Medal Game Recorder Android app supports over 160 popular mobile games – including Call of Duty Mobile, Fortnite, PUBG Mobile, Mario Kart Tour, Pokémon GO, Harry Potter Wizards Unite, and more – with additional games being added to the platform each day.
Once a user starts up a game and gives Medal Game Recorder proper permission, the app immediately starts recording the screen. The app icon floats atop the game, and can be dragged to any position, for ease of access. Once a match is won, a great move is executed, or a perfect card played, the user can save the last 15 seconds of footage with one tap of the icon. With a long press on the icon further features can be accessed, including the gallery where the new clip is stored and from which it can be shared. Once that game is closed Medal Recorder stops recording and the only content that remains saved is the 15-second clip stored in the gallery.
A long press on the Medal Game Recorder app icon also allows users to hide the app icon button, which can be restored from the Android OS’ drop-down notification bar. Settings can be accessed in this way as well, and users can set the length of clips they want to capture, video recording quality, and more.
Medal.tv is the easiest way to create and share short-form video clips from popular PC, and now mobile, games like Roblox, Minecraft, League of Legends, and more. With the Medal.tv desktop and mobile apps, players can quickly record short clips of epic gaming moments. Each clip is uploaded to their Medal account, where it can be accessed on desktop, mobile, or the web. From there, uploading and sharing via Tiktok, Discord, Twitter, Facebook, iMessage, SMS, and more are only a few taps away.
Launched in 2017 with a focus on PC gaming, Medal raised a $3.2 million seed funding round led by Backed VC and Initial Capital in February 2019, followed in September 2019 with a $9 million Series A round led by Horizons Ventures. Medal’s expansion into the mobile gaming market began in October 2019 with the acquisition of Megacool.co.
