Samsung’s 2020 Smart TVs to Get Cloud Gaming Support Later This Year

The 2020 smart TVs from Samsung will reportedly get cloud gaming apps later this year. Samsung announced the update during a Gamescom event earlier today, although it is not yet clear which 2020 smart TV models will receive the cloud gaming apps update or a specific release date other than mentioning later this year. In addition, Bethesda’s most recent game, “Starfield,” which opens on September 6 and is being developed by the studio, was referenced in the Korean OEM’s statement at Gamescom 2023. This sci-fi RPG game is accessible via Xbox Game Pass to interested gamers.

The industry has seen a rise in the popularity of cloud gaming, which enables players to engage in high-quality gaming without the need for specialized technology. By integrating cloud gaming apps into its 2020 smart TVs, Samsung enables consumers to enjoy immersive gaming without the need for pricey consoles or gaming PCs. While the entire gaming hub won’t be available on the 2020 smart TVs, Samsung claims cloud gaming apps are coming, even though we don’t yet know which ones.

Popular ones like Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now should be among the first to be made available on these older smart TVs, though. In-app purchases made through the App Store will enable Samsung to add cloud gaming to previous 2020 TV models. Although the precise list of cloud gaming apps supported, the distribution schedule, and the models that will receive the feature have not yet been confirmed, Samsung’s gaming ecosystem is moving in the right direction.

However, we can expect that low-end TVs like the Crystal series will not be listed under the models receiving the cloud gaming software. During a speech at Gamescom, Mike Lucero from Samsung stated, Today, we are thrilled to announce that we will expand cloud gaming apps to our 2020 model-year TVs later this year, giving tens of millions of players access to their favorite games and services.”
