While traditional console gaming remains to sit in the living room, platform holders are looking to expand that to other forms. Already, Nintendo with the Nintendo Switch since 2017 already created its own answer with a dockable device that can play on the go or on the TV under one flat price. However, Microsoft is also adamant to bring gaming through other means.
So far, xCloud continues to be that path with cloud streaming on mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets. And now with PC also taking advantage of the feature alongside console itself, this suggests more device are to find native apps later on. Already with that is televisions which Microsoft is working closely with manufacturers to implement for its service.
Elsewhere we witnessed Google ship support for its own cloud streaming service, Stadia. In that, the platform last year found more TV makes receiving its own native Stadia app: Hisense, Onn, Philips, And Xiaomi. In a statement from Samsung, Stadia and NVIDIA GeForece Now are both expecting native support on the new 2022 models later this year.
“We are working with partners to bring their best levels of service to our platform. We will be announcing details as we get closer to launch,” Mike Lucero, Samsung Gaming Product Director told in a statement to The Verge. Already, Samsung enabled Xbox Game Pass support through its Samsung Access Subscription earlier on and now its expanding to other devices.
Additionally, Samsung is crafting its own video game streaming platform as well. Previously at Samsung’s SDC21 Keynote in the fall, it was revealed that it will be working to offer a new experience for the collected Samsung audience that uses its displays and other manufactured devices as well later on.
In October 2021, NVIDIA GeForce Now was discovered to be functional on Xbox One. Before, the application through the implemented Microsoft Edge Chromium version did not operate properly. But now it works as it would on other platforms before. You can read the full report by heading here.
