Samsung Smart TVs in 2022 will be compatible with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, enough to play video games at a lower cost.
The smart TV are more and more efficient, their components allow them a very interesting computing power, which makes them a medium of choice for the streaming of video games, transforming televisions into very efficient gaming devices, provided, of course, that you have a subscription to a service allowing this to be done.
Samsung Smart TVs in 2022 will be compatible with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
Samsung Smart TVs in 2022 will be compatible with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, as Microsoft recently announced. And to enjoy the service, just install the Xbox client application on the TV and connect. Samsung and Microsoft have already worked to make more than 100 games available directly on Galaxy smartphones, this is neither more nor less than an extension of this partnership.
Microsoft is currently actively seeking to sign similar agreements with other TV manufacturers, but at this time we have no details of the progress of these discussions. In any case, it would seem that Samsung has more internal resources to be able to offer this service so soon. For others interested, it will certainly require the help of Microsoft before such applications arrive on their TVs.
The Xbox application is compatible with Xbox controllers connected to the TV directly. Other controllers should work just as well, however, including PlayStation controllers, and the process for doing so is straightforward.
How to play video games at a lower cost
Stream video games in this way can be very interesting and it could offer a much cheaper solution than having to buy a dedicated device, whether it’s a console or a PC, provided, of course, that you have an excellent internet connection. If you like to test new games frequently, streaming directly from your TV is definitely the easiest and cheapest solution.
Now hopefully more TV makers will join Samsung in making Xbox games streamable on as many TVs as possible. And who knows, maybe other services, like GeForce Now, might be coming too.
