Samsung has announced that the company is planning to develop a cloud gaming service for its Tizen smart TVs, similar to the services like Microsoft’s xCloud and Google’s Stadia.
Samsung claims that the gaming platform would help it diversify, and that it has 200 million smart TVs on the market that may serve as a doorway to next-gen gaming experiences without the need for extra gear.
The announcement came as part of Samsung’s annual developer conference (SDC 2021), where the company also revealed new features for Bixby, SmartThings, and other IoT products.
There are currently no additional information on the release date or pricing, so we must wait for the official announcement.
Microsoft has been doing wonders in this business domain. The company added xCloud To Windows PCs Via Xbox App that lets users ease of accessibility, more than that, you can access Microsoft Browser right from your Xbox as the Latest Microsoft Edge Browser is now available on Xbox.
Now, Microsoft users can play Stadia games, communicate on Discord servers, and access steam via Microsoft Edge and sand after receiving a lot of criticism on its first release, the current upgrade of Microsoft Edge is being well received by users.
We’ve also added some new features to help you get started, including easy-to-access information on controller and network status, social features to stay connected with friends, and the ability to invite people – even those also playing on the cloud without the game installed – to join you in a game.”Jason Beaumont, A Partner Director Of Xbox Experiences.
With other companies providing that many features for its users, Samsung’s timing in entering this business arena appears to be off. Its competitors are far beyond the limitations, and in order for Samsung to keep its worldwide reputation, the company must do something out of the ordinary in order to compete with other tech giants such as Google and Microsoft.
Tizen OS hasn’t been much loved when it comes to Smartwatches, a few months ago, Samsung had ditched Tizen OS in favor of Wear OS for its upcoming smartwatch lineup.
