Samsung Gaming Hub will bring cloud gaming to smart TVs

04 January 2022 0

Samsung has announced a new service called Samsung Gaming Hub for select 2022 smart TV models. The aim of the service is to become a single destination for all gaming needs include cloud gaming. It has partnered with Google Stadia, NVIDIA GeForce Now, and Utomik for the time being but is touting it as just the beginning.

Samsung Gaming Hub is essentially a user interface dedicated to gaming. It will show you a comprehensive list of popular games and all the games that you have played recently. There will be a separate row showing all the gaming devices you have and the gaming services you are subscribed to. This will make it easier to switch from one gaming platform to another.

It further has an Accessories & Music section that will allow you to manage accessories connected to the TV. It will also help you control music playback while playing video games. Samsung is further adding support for third-party controllers so that you can navigate through the whole UI without the need to switch between your controller and TV remote.

The official blog post says,

"Samsung’s 2022 Smart TVs come with a new Smart Hub that puts content curation and discovery front and center with their viewing preferences. The new Smart Hub will guide users to their favorite content or help them discover something new all while spending less time searching. The Smart Hub’s sidebar also allows for a seamless transition between categories – Media, Game (Gaming Hub) and Ambient – letting users focus on various in-home activities."

It should be noted that Samsung is not the only smart TV brand adding cloud gaming support. LG added support for Google Stadia and NVIDIA GeForce Now game streaming services in the past couple of months.
