Cloud is the future of gaming (depending on how fast connectivity we can get). To further move away from a hardware-centric model to a ‘service’ model, Xbox is making it even easier to play games without a PC or console. Just the way you can watch Netflix on any smart TV, soon you will be able to play your favorite games on smart TVs.

Xbox is joining Samsung Gaming Hub, a new game streaming discovery platform available on 2022 Samsung Smart TVs including Neo QLED 8K, Neo QLED 4K, QLEDs2 and 2022 Smart Monitor Series.

With this, Samsung Gaming Hub users are now able to stream over 100 high quality games, through the Xbox app, including titles like Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5. Moreover, they can play new games on day one of release from Xbox Game Studios and enjoy iconic franchises from Bethesda Softworks and more.

In addition to the Xbox app offering hundreds of their favorite games via Xbox Game Pass, gamers can also look forward to an amazing gaming experience with minimized latency and amazing visual graphics thanks to advanced motion enhancements and game-play performance technology across Samsung’s 2022 Smart TV lineup and 2022 Smart Monitor Series.

Xbox Cloud Gaming is leveraging many open source and CNCF projects including Kubernetes and Linkerd, to name a few. When you play game on your Xbox, you are consuming many such open source and cloud-native technologies, indirectly.
