Samsung Smart TVs Are the First to Embrace Cloud Gaming
Samsung is rolling out its Gaming Hub for select 2022 smart TVs, cementing itself as the first smart TV brand to embrace cloud gaming. Gaming Hub provides an all-in-one interface for services like Xbox Cloud Gaming, Google Stadia, and NVIDIA GeForce Now. It even integrates with Twitch!
Gaming Hub is the first home for Microsoft's Xbox Cloud Gaming smart TV app. This exclusivity, combined with the hub's all-in-one nature, is a serious endorsement for cloud gaming. I'm especially impressed by the Gaming Hub's interface, which treats these cloud gaming platforms like traditional streaming services—it even recommends new games to play!
Gaming hub is rolling out to the following TVs:
2022 Neo QLED 8K
2022 Neo QLED 4K
2022 Smart Monitor Series
The rise of cloud gaming presents an interesting opportunity for smart TV manufacturers.
