After announcing the integration of Xbox Game Pass via the Cloud on Samsung Smart TVs from 2022, Microsoft has just expanded the list of TVs compatible with this feature.

Along with Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft has also entered the nascent cloud gaming market with Xbox Cloud Gaming. If the experience ended in a bitter failure for some like Google with Stadia, the service offered by the Redmond firm is doing particularly well.

Indeed, Xbox Cloud gaming surpassed 20 million users in October 2022, and that number is growing steadily. As a reminder, thanks to this service, players can access via the cloud to many games in the Xbox Game Pass catalog without requiring the need to have a console or a PC.

For example, you can access Xbox Cloud gaming on iOS, on Chromebooks or since June 2022 directly on Samsung Smart TVs launched in 2022 via a dedicated application and the Samsung Gaming Hub. Gold, Microsoft has just announced good news this Wednesday, November 16, 2022.

Xbox Cloud gaming is coming to Samsung Smart TVs in 2021

Indeed, the manufacturer has decided expand the list of compatible devices with the Xbox Cloud gaming beta. Now the Xbox app is compatible with a selection of Samsung Smart TVs launched in 2021. Please note that at the time of writing, Samsung has not yet updated the official list of TVs compatible with the service on its website.

For now, only models from 2022 are displayed. However, thing should be changed soon and we will update this article accordingly. Also, be aware that this is not the only novelty announced by Microsoft.

The cloud experience will take on a new dimension with the addition of vibrations on compatible Bluetooth controllers like the Xbox wireless controller or the DualSense of the Playstation 5. Regarding the latter, however, do not expect support for haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. This is not the case. Vibrations will be available at the end of 2022 on Samsung Smart TVs from 2021 and 2022.
