Samsung is creating a "Cloud Game Platform" that will provide a "seamless and immersive gaming experience." Samsung's Tizen smart TV platform will be used to join the cloud gaming business. The announcement was made during Samsung's Developer Conference keynote, and the firm didn't say what games will be accessible, what other platforms it would be available on if any, or when it would be released. Many of Samsung's large tech competitors are moving into cloud gaming, but it is something the company has experimented with before.

Cloud gaming is gaining traction, particularly now that major firms like Xbox's xCloud, Google's Stadia, NVIDIA GeForce Now, and Amazon's Luna have entered the new entertainment market. Samsung is ready to jump into the game, and it's doing it with Tizen-powered smart TVs.

Samsung is creating a "Cloud Game Technology," which will use Samsung's Tizen smart TV platform to provide a "seamless, immersive gaming experience." The purpose of Samsung's cloud gaming service, according to the company, is to allow "customers to play the latest games on their Samsung Smart TV integrated with the Tizen platform." That appears to be a rather exclusive service, though that may change in the future.

Samsung did, however, reveal some other ideas for Tizen TVs:

  • Samsung says that thanks to cooperation with Google, consumers will be able to enjoy superior video calling on TVs with AI-enabled focus and zoom functions.
  • Samsung Health — Smart TVs with a webcam will be able to assess and deliver real-time feedback on a user's movement during an exercise.
  • HDR10+ for realistic gameplay — Tizen TVs will include HDR10+ with automated low-latency and HDR calibration settings.

Samsung will also introduce "Tizen for Business," a platform that will allow interactive e-boards in schools and kiosks, as well as displays in restaurants, airports, and railway stations, according to the company. Organizations will be able to keep an eye on these displays in a timely manner and adjust settings to several devices with a single touch.

Based on its mission of "Screens Everywhere, Screen for All," Samsung continues to build on its position as the global leader in TVs by innovating new experiences that increase connectivity, functionality, and immersive entertainment.

Non-Samsung Tizen TVs

Samsung has announced intentions to licence Tizen to other TV manufacturers under the "Tizen TV Platform Licensing" programme. Manufacturers who wish to develop a premium TV platform like Tizen may do so fast and at a low cost, according to the report. The decision to licence Tizen for televisions to other manufacturers will benefit both the producers and Tizen's popularity.
