Microsoft has announced that it will make its Xbox Cloud Gaming service available on 2022 Samsung TVs and monitors via an Xbox app on June 30th.
Cloud gaming is already available on PCs, Xbox consoles, and mobile devices, but that means you can play Xbox games on a TV without a console for the first time. Microsoft says it will pursue other TV partnerships for cloud gaming after launching on Samsung devices.
As on the other platforms, Cloud Gaming (which is technically still in beta) is available as part of the Game Pass Ultimate subscription service and offers streaming access to the Game Pass catalog of games, which includes all major Xbox Studios releases such as Xbox One Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite, Minecraft, and future Bethesda titles, along with an ongoing lineup of games from third-party and indie developers. You can play too Fourteen days free on Cloud Gaming without a Game Pass subscription.
The Xbox app for Samsung TVs, Microsoft promises, will be “a seamless experience, similar to using other streaming apps on your TV.” Of course, you’ll also need to pair a game controller to the TV via Bluetooth, and the PlayStation DualSense and DualShock 4 controllers are compatible with the app, as well as Microsoft’s own line of Xbox controllers. Bluetooth headsets will also be compatible for game audio and chat.
The Xbox app for Samsung Smart TVs will be available in 27 countries. Microsoft didn’t list them, but we assume they’re essentially the same countries where cloud gaming is currently available (including the United States, Canada, many European countries, Japan, and South Korea).
Microsoft also announced that Xbox Cloud Gaming is available today in Argentina and New Zealand, and that Game Pass subscribers will receive game demos and the ability to use Cloud Gaming to stream games outside of the Game Pass library within the next year.
