Samsung gaming hub with access to Xbox, Stadia and GeForce now debuts on company’s 2022 smart TVs

0 20

Samsung Gaming Hub has been introduced for all 2022 Samsung smart TVs and monitors to give users quick access to Nvidia’s GeForce Now, Google Stadia, Utomik and the Xbox app. Announced at CES 2022 in January, the new offering functions as an all-in-one streaming game discovery platform that allows gamers to access multiple cloud services from a single screen. The Gaming Hub displays video game consoles connected via HDMI and supports popular Bluetooth headsets and controllers.

The Gaming Hub is deployed on Samsung smart TV models, including the 2022 Neo QLED 8K, Neo QLED 4K, QLED and 2022 Smart Monitor series. This allows users to access Nvidia’s GeForce Now, Google Stadia, Utomik, and the Xbox app. Samsung will also include support for Amazon Luna in the future.

While a list of smart TVs offers access to cloud services including GeForce Now and Stadia, Samsung is trying to grab the attention of some gamers by introducing Microsoft’s Xbox TV app. This was long overdue and promised in November 2020.

The app gives access to Xbox Cloud Gaming and lets you stream Fortnite for free. However, you must subscribe to an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to play over a hundred games on the TV.

In addition to providing access to all the popular cloud gaming services, the Samsung Gaming Hub provides curated recommendations to users based on the “latest and most popular games” available to play.

The Gaming Hub also integrates music and streaming services, so you can connect to platforms such as Spotify, Twitch and YouTube directly from the experience menu. In addition, users can access the latest game news, watch tutorials, listen to music and podcasts, and watch trailers directly from the hub.

Samsung is initially rolling out Gaming Hub in the US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, South Korea and Brazil. It’s unclear when it will be available on eligible Samsung TV and monitor models in India.

Gadgets 360 has reached out to Samsung for comment on India’s Gaming Hub Indian rollout and will update this article when the company responds.
