Samsung has begun rolling out its Gaming Hub, an all-new game streaming discovery platform that should soon be found across all of the company’s 2022 Smart TVs (Neo QLED 8K, Neo QLED 4K, QLEDs) and 2022 Smart Monitor Series. The platform includes support for what appears to be the majority of today’s biggest cloud gaming services, including Xbox, NVIDIA GeForce NOW, and Google Stadia, enabling those who prefer to game without additional hardware to quickly find and instantly launch their favorite titles on Samsung’s latest Smart TVs and Smart Monitors. Samsung’s new Gaming Hub may also be of relevance to music lovers and video watchers, as it integrates major music and streaming services that include YouTube and Spotify. A separate article from Microsoft can confirm that the Xbox App is now available on Samsung 2022 Smart TVs, enabling owners to play Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and countless other cloud-enabled Xbox Game Pass games without the need for additional hardware such as a PC or console.
“The Samsung Gaming Hub combines Samsung’s leadership in streaming technology with our experience in creating the industry’s most cutting-edge hardware, removing the barriers to entry so people can just play,” said Won-Jin Lee, President and Head of the Service Business Team at Samsung Electronics. “With expanding partnerships across leading game streaming services and expert curated recommendations, players will be able to easily browse and discover games from the widest selection available, regardless of platform.”
Players can also look forward to an amazing gaming experience thanks to advanced motion enhancements and latency reducing technology across Samsung’s 2022 Smart TV lineup and 2022 Smart Monitor Series. Samsung’s latest lineups introduce faster decoding and optimized buffer control technology which reduces the input lag by more than an average of 30 percent compared to the previous models.
Additionally, Samsung’s latest AI upscaling technology optimizes game graphics, providing incredible 4K and 8K resolution with high color accuracy and sharpness.
