Samsung announces partnership with Xbox’s xCloud game streaming
Game streaming service is currently in preview
Samsung has announced a partnership with Xbox which will see it utilise the xCloud game streaming service.
As reported by Cnet, Samsung’s director of strategy said on stage at the company’s Unpacked event that it is working with Xbox on a “premium cloud-based game streaming experience.”
Park didn’t offer any other details, but in a follow-up statement Microsoft confirmed the announcement was related to xCloud.
“We believe players around the world should have access to great, high-quality games on the device of their choice,” a spokesperson said.
“Working with partners like Samsung is an important step in our Project xCloud journey and will help make game streaming more accessible for gamers. We look forward to sharing more later this year.”
The xCloud preview in North America, UK and Korea already allows users to stream games to Android devices.
Microsoft opened registration for xCloud’s preview in September 2019, before launching the following month with four games.
It expanded the xCloud public preview with 50 new games in November, while also confirming that DualShock 4 support is in the works.
Following the latest additions, Xbox.com now lists over 80 titles available through xCloud, which will launch in further territories later this year.
