Users will be able to turn on your Samsung 2022 Smart TV beginning today in 27 countries, connect to the Xbox App in the new Samsung Gaming Hub and Media Hub, connect your Bluetooth controller, and begin playing on the Xbox platform.

To get started, users must have one of Samsung’s 2022 Smart TVs to access the Xbox app.

  • In addition, if you want to play any of the hundreds of cloud-enabled titles that are included in the Game Pass catalogue, you will need to have an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership. And if you don’t have an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership but still want to give Fortnite a try before you commit to paying for it, you can do so without spending a dime by playing the game without a subscription.
