Samsung says it’s planning to bring cloud gaming apps to its 2020 smart TVs later this year. Samsung made the announcement during a Gamescom event earlier today, but it’s not yet clear which 2020 smart TV models will be updated with cloud gaming apps, nor an exact release date outside of “later this year.”
“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,” said Mike Lucero, head of product for gaming at Samsung.
While the 2020 smart TVs won’t be getting the full gaming hub, Samsung says cloud gaming apps are on the way, even if we don’t know the exact apps just yet. It’s reasonable to assume popular ones like Xbox Cloud Gaming and Nvidia GeForce Now will be among the first to arrive on these older smart TVs, though.
