Xbox Cloud Gaming lets you stream games to smartphones, tablets, and PCs. Now, a new report states that Microsoft might be expanding its services to televisions as well.
Xbox Streaming For TV
As part of its Xbox Everywhere initiative, the software giant is reportedly working on launching an Xbox cloud-gaming streaming device in the next year. VentureBeat reports that the rumoured Xbox streaming device will not only allow you to access a wide variety of games via Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, but it will also let you enjoy movie and TV services. This new device will supposedly be similar to the Amazon Fire TV Stick or it could even take the form of a puck, like the Roku.
Samsung App For Xbox Game-Streaming
There’s good news for Samsung smart TV owners, as they will not have to buy a dedicated game-streaming device. If rumours are to be believed, Microsoft has teamed up with the South Korean electronics company to create a Samsung-exclusive Xbox game-streaming app for its line of smart TVs. You can expect the app to make its way to the public within the next year.

Reports of the new cloud-gaming streaming device for TVs and Samsung app do not appear far-fetched, as Microsoft has been working on making Xbox games more accessible. One major factor that prevents gamers from enjoying Xbox games is the expensive and mostly elusive console. With free games such as Fortnite being offered, it’s clear that Microsoft is trying to expand its reach to an audience that can’t afford consoles.
Xbos is offering a variety of features to appease gamers. Just recently, Microsoft had announced a new Controller Bar which offers a preview of the Xbox Game bar. it will let users access game shortcuts for recent games as well as launchers. However, this feature isn’t live yet, it is only available for Windows Insiders to test.
