Microsoft and Samsung have partnered on X-box cloud-based game streaming service
The partnership was confirmed by Microsoft in a statement by its Project xCloud chief, Kareem Choudhry, “Having partners join us on our journey to delivering high-quality game streaming to players is of the utmost importance. We’ve seen positive feedback from Project xCloud preview participants testing a range of Galaxy devices, and it will only get better as we continue to work closely with Samsung on refining the experience. It’s an exciting time to be worki
ng on Project xCloud, and we can’t wait to share more about our work with Samsung later this year.”
Head of Samsung’s marketing in the U.S, David S. Park, speaking on the merge said: “This is just the beginning of our gaming partnership with Xbox while unveiling Microsoft’s Forza Street game for Galaxy devices.
Both Samsung and Xbox share a vision for bringing great gaming experiences to mobile players around the world. With our 5G-enabled portfolios and Microsoft’s rich history in gaming, we are working closely together to create a premium cloud-based game streaming experience. You’ll hear more about it later this year.” Park added.
This is however not the first time Microsoft will be partnering with Samsung. Last year, they bost partnered to bring Android and Windows together thereby combining apps like OneDrive and Your Phone into Samsung’s devices.
That is not all, the designers of both tech giants are working on this project together. I am sure both companies will benefit from the new merger. For now, we are all waiting for the arrival of Microsoft’s xCloud game streaming service later in the year. The device will have a complete PC streaming and PS4 controller support. For those interested, the xCloud is now in open beta.
