Microsoft and Samsung are celebrating the arrival of the Xbox app in the Samsung Smart TVs 2022with which it is possible to play hundreds of Xbox Game Pass titles enabled for cloud gaming or Xbox CloudGaminglike Fortnite, Halo: Infinite, Forza Horizon 5 and Microsoft Flight Simulator, among others.
Last week Microsoft and Samsung announced that the Xbox app was now available in 27 countries, but only on Samsung Smart TVs model 2022. This is possible thanks to the Samsung Gaming Hub or Media Hub, and all you need to do to play is connect a Bluetooth controller to your TV.

To access the Xbox app you need to have a Samsung 2022 Smart TV, and to access the game catalog you need to have an active Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. However, it is possible to play Fortnite with Xbox Cloud Gaming even if you don’t have a subscription.
The official announcement that Xbox Cloud Gaming would be coming to Samsung Smart TVs came in early June, when Microsoft announced its next step in the strategy to bring Xbox Game Pass to all devices. Thanks to this Smart TV application it will be possible to play more than 100 games from the catalog without the need to have an Xbox console.
This will not be the only way we can play Xbox Game Pass titles on TV, as we recently reported that Microsoft would be working on an external device called Keystone, which would connect to the TV via HDMI in a similar way to Google Chromecast and Amazon Firestick.
