Will We Be Able To Stream Xbox Games To Samsung TVs?

Microsoft is rumoured to be working with Samsung on an Xbox smart TV streaming app.


After all, Microsoft has unveiled the Xbox Everywhere initiative, which aims to make Xbox Cloud Gaming work on as many devices as possible. However, part of it will involve splitting the feature from (Xbox) Game Pass because players will be able to play the games they already own for free. It is currently being tested with Epic Games’ Fortnite. Still, there are rumours that apps are also being considered by the Redmond company alongside some kind of streaming box to make it easier to access cloud services.

Jeff Grubb, writing for VentureBeat, shared more about Microsoft’s plans. He says the company is working directly with Samsung on an app for their smart TVs. It would be a logical move, as Samsung is the largest TV company in the market, and it would also be a move against Sony, as they are among the manufacturing companies themselves. According to Grubb, a streaming device is also in the pipeline, which could take a similar form to the early Roku devices, allowing video and video game content streaming.

It is not official, but it confirms that Xbox wants to become a mainly cloud-based platform, which would seem logical given the chip and hardware shortages going on for years. When announcing Xbox Everywhere, Microsoft said, “It’s our mission at Xbox to bring the joy and community to gaming by putting players at the centre of everything we do. We want to empower everyone worldwide to play the games they want, with the people they want, on the devices they already own. We call this Xbox Everywhere.

As we look to make gaming more accessible to even more people and reach the three billion players globally, we’ve invested heavily in the cloud – both for players to play the way they want. For creators, they engage new, larger audiences and build, run and manage their games using best-in-class cloud tools and services.”

According to Grubb, the Xbox streaming box and Samsung app will be available within a year. We’ll see.
