This app is specifically for rooted devices. It enables full mouse capturing which is not possible without root prior to Android 8.0 Oreo. This means no double cursor or being limited to the bounds of the screen. If your device is not rooted, download this instead:

Android Oreo/8.0 users: Official support for mouse capture without requiring root is included in Android 8.0. You should use the normal non-root version of Moonlight on Oreo and later Android versions instead of this version. It has the same mouse capture capabilities as this root version, but with better OS integration with multi-window and other features.

Root-specific info: Press Ctrl+Shift+Z to toggle grabbing input devices.

This app streams games, programs, or your full desktop from an NVIDIA GameStream-compatible PC on your local network or the Internet using NVIDIA GeForce Experience. Mouse, keyboard, and controller input is sent from your Android device to the PC.

Streaming performance may vary based on your client device and network setup. HDR requires an HDR10-capable device, GTX 1000-series GPU, and HDR10-enabled game.

Quick Setup Instructions

To have a good experience, you need a mid to high-end wireless router with a good wireless connection to your Android device (5 GHz highly recommended) and a good connection from your PC to your router (Ethernet highly recommended).

Detailed Setup Instructions
See the full setup guide for:
• Adding a PC manually (if your PC is not detected)
• Streaming over the Internet or LTE

MOGA controller users
If your controller has a switch with A and B, it must be switched to B to be used for streaming. If you have no switch, use the MOGA Universal Driver app.

PlayStation 3 controller users
Use the SixAxis app in "Native Gamepad" mode for Moonlight. The default button mapping needs to be adjusted to match the standard controller layout for streaming.
