The Loudplay dashboard is where you will start your remote PC service. To use the service, you will need credit or time added to your account so you can play. But first lets run the interface tutorial.
The main button here starts you PC. There are popular preinstalled games on the bottom here to start without taking the time to install them to your PC. Then, there is the game time available to use. You use the button below that to add time to your account.
Before we get into our PC, let’s check out the rest of the app.

Feel free to chat with support if needed. The next icon is you app information icon. And the last icon is to change languages. They currently only support Russian and English.
Starting the Loudplay Service
To get started with your free hour, it will open up a payment gateway to YooMoney to enter your credit card information as displayed here. The first line is your CC number, next it’s the month, year and the CVC last. After this you should be good to go. Hit the button to start you PC and it should log you in.
This is your Loudplay Windows PC. This is primarily a gamer’s platform so they have automatically installed the most notable game launchers for you to install you games from. Steam, Ubisoft Connect, Origin, Epic Games, Battle.net and more are all here for you to start.
Let’s dive into how to operate your Loudplay PC. As you can see at the top, they have a hotkey list so that you can manipulate the client how you see fit by pressing Alt+1. If you do not want to use the hotkey list, they have a Loudplay client icon at top which acts as the client menu once clicked.
Adding More Gaming Time
Say you have run out of time and you want to add some time to play. Hit the “Top up my balance” to add time. If you have a referral code, use the Present icon to enter that before you pay for a package. They have 4 different packages for the number of hours you want to play. The 10 hour package is their most popular. Apparently, PayPal is the only way to pay for these packages at this point in time. Also be aware that they will autocharge you if you go overtime and if your credit card is saved.
Once the transaction is complete, you will have more time allotted to your account. If your PC is currently active, you will have to shut down your PC for the time to show up. Now you can start your PC and play normally.
Ending your session
To end you remote session, hit the hotkeys Alt+Q or use the client menu and choose the “Disconnect” option at the bottom. You remote PC will forward you to the dashboard. From here you remember to shut down your PC so you don’t get charged for any additional time. Then you can close the app.
