Xbox Streaming Games Coming to Samsung’s TV App Console not required

Delivering on a promise made in 2021, Microsoft officially announced today that it is partnering with Samsung to create an Xbox app for the company’s smart TVs that will allow anyone to play Xbox games via the cloud, without the need to own an Xbox console. .

Starting June 30th, anyone with a “New Samsung Smart TV 2022” in 27 supported countries can download the Xbox app and start playing over the cloud. Players will apparently also need an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, except in the case of Fortnite. As previously announced, Microsoft and Epic have struck a deal to make Fortnite free for everyone.
