Samsung is launching its gaming hub for its 2022 smart TVs and monitors today. The hub brings together the best game streaming apps in one place, with quick access to Nvidia’s GeForce Now, Google Stadia, Utomik, Twitch and Microsoft’s new Xbox TV app.
Even Amazon Luna will be available soon, neatly integrated into the Samsung Gaming Hub UI.However, the gaming hub does not only function as a starting point for cloud gaming. HDMI-connected video game consoles will be included in the hub alongside pass-through controller inputs, allowing you to use a single controller rather than having to pair multiple.
That means popular Bluetooth headsets and controllers work with multiple apps, services, and devices through the Samsung Gaming Hub.
The biggest addition to the gaming hub is Microsoft’s Xbox TV app. While Stadia, GeForce Now and Twitch are available on a variety of TVs, the Xbox app is currently exclusive to the Samsung Gaming Hub and offers access to Xbox Cloud Gaming.
