Cloud gaming is expanding its “territory” right now, with each company making its services available on as many platforms as possible. Microsoft has enhanced its Edge browser with Xbox cloud gaming specializations, Google Stadia is using NVIDIA technology, and NVIDIA itself has landed on LG TVs. It’s all about lowering the barrier to cloud gaming and reliance on PCs as much as possible.
Microsoft announced a month ago that the Xbox Cloud Gaming App would be coming to Samsung’s 2022 smart TVs. Today, the feature has officially launched and is available in all countries where the Xbox Cloud Gaming service is currently supported. This will allow those with an XGP Ultimate membership subscription to play a wide range of games currently supported by XGP directly on their TV in the cloud, without any additional hardware.
Of course, players need to have a Bluetooth handle. The good news is that most consoles come with Bluetooth connectivity, such as the PS4, PS5 DualSense handle and Xbox’s own handle can be used directly.
Although there are many games for players to download and play, cloud games are sometimes not ideal in effect, so XGP is a major selling point that many players do not get to experience. But according to reports, XGP is currently planning to launch a family program in the future, so that the whole family can use a subscription to play games, which makes the original inexpensive XGP even more attractive.
