Samsung television owners can now play cloud-based Xbox Game Pass titles on their 2022 smart TV models.
A few weeks ago, Microsoft announced a partnership with Samsung to get the Xbox App along with Xbox Game Pass integrated into the South Korean electronics giant’s televisions.
Xbox’s official blog has more details (via Xbox Wire):
Today, we’re excited to celebrate the launch of the Xbox App on Samsung 2022 Smart TVs, enabling you to play hundreds of cloud-enabled Xbox Game Pass games like Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5, and Microsoft Flight Simulator without a console.
Starting today in 27 countries, you can turn on your Samsung 2022 Smart TV, navigate to the Xbox App in the new Samsung Gaming Hub or Media Hub, connect your Bluetooth controller, and play. It’s as simple as using any other streaming app on your TV.
In order to play the games on your smart TV without an Xbox console, you will need a 2022 model Samsung smart TV. Make sure to download the Xbox App. You also need an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Most Bluetooth-enabled controllers work with the app including the Xbox Wireless Controller, DualSense controller, and more.
