Samsung showed off its gaming platform at CES 2022. After teasing us with a release “near the end of the summer” and a partnership with Xbox, the company’s brand-new Gaming Hub service is now available on some Samsung TVs and monitors.
Right now, the Gaming Hub platform is being rolled out in South Korea, Brazil, the US, Canada, the UK, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy. The service works with a small number of display models, like those in the 2022 Neo QLED TV series and the 2022 Smart Monitor series.
Samsung’s latest Smart TV platform is called “Gaming Hub,” and it lets users stream games without a console or PC.
Games you can play online that don’t need special equipment
As the name suggests, Samsung’s new gaming platform is a digital hub that brings together a number of free and paid gaming and streaming services.
The Gaming Hub gives users access to gaming services like Xbox, NVIDIA GeForce Now, Google Stadia, Utomik, and soon Amazon Luna. Through the platform, users can also access music and video streaming services like Twitch, YouTube, and Spotify.
Xbox, NVIDIA GeForce NOW, Google Stadia, Utomik, YouTube, and Spotify are joined by Amazon Luna and Twitch to offer even more ways to play.
The partnership with Xbox was explained in a recent announcement. Microsoft’s platform should be available today or soon after, depending on the market. Customers with Samsung smart TVs and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate can play dozens of high-quality games hosted in the cloud. Anyone who isn’t a member of Fortnite can play the game for free.
The Gaming Hub is now available on all Samsung smart TVs and smart monitors for 2022. Both of these product lines have faster decoding and better buffer control technology. This means that the input lag is 30 percent less than it was in the 2021 models.
