The Xbox App is coming to various Samsung Smart devices on June 30th, including: Neo QLED 8K, Neo QLED 4K, QLEDs and 2022 Smart Monitor Series. Users that want to make use of the new Xbox App streaming for over 100 games will need an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, but Fortnite is playable without a subscription.
“We’re on a quest to bring the joy and community of gaming to everyone on the planet, and bringing the Xbox app to smart TVs is another step in making our vision a reality,” CEO of Microsoft Gaming Phil Spencer said in a presser. “That’s why we’re excited to partner with Samsung, a global leader in TVs, on bringing Xbox to more players. Working with Samsung has helped us provide more access to gaming and enabled us to welcome new players into our thriving community.”
President and Head of the Service Business Team at Samsung Electronics Won-Jin Lee added, “Xbox has been an integral partner for Samsung and shares in our vision and dedication to bring the ultimate game streaming experience to everywhere in the home. We are excited to deepen our partnership with Xbox by adding the Xbox app to Samsung Gaming Hub, which now gives Samsung Smart TV users access to hundreds of Xbox Game Pass games. With the same ease that our customers watch live sports and stream movies on Samsung Neo QLEDs and QLEDs, they can now play their favorite games.”
