The company notes that playing Xbox games on 2022 Samsung smart TVs gives Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members instant access to over 100 cloud-enabled games, including Xbox Game Studios titles on the same day they release. Fortnite will be available to stream for free even if you’re not a Game Pass Ultimate member. You can start playing via the new app by accessing it from the Samsung Gaming Hub and logging into your existing Microsoft account. If you’re new to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you can sign up directly the app. Next, you’ll have to connect your Bluetooth-enabled controller like the Xbox Wireless Controller, Xbox Adaptive Controller, Elite Series 2 Controller or the DualSense controller.

On June 30th, Microsoft will release the Xbox TV app, which will allow users to play Xbox games without having to own a console. The business has teamed up with Samsung to provide the next Xbox gaming experience to Samsung’s smart TVs in 2022. In 27 nations, the new TV app will be available. Microsoft says it will first deliver the Xbox software to Samsung smart TVs, but it will look at more TV partnerships in the future.


  • Microsoft notes that if you’re new to gaming, this is an easy way to start playing without needing to buy a PC or a console. Today’s launch indicates that Microsoft is focused on increasing revenue via gaming content and services, not just simply through console sales. As part of today’s announcement, Microsoft also shared that later this year, it plans to roll out the ability for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to play, from the cloud, select games they already own or have purchased outside the Xbox Game Pass library.

  • “We’re super excited by what this next step means for all you gamers out there,” Ashley McKissick, the corporate vice president of Xbox gaming experiences and platforms, said in a blog post. “With this rollout, we’re making it easier than ever to play games on the devices you already own. With Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and a controller, you can easily jump into the world of gaming and connect with your friends and communities on Xbox.”
