Microsoft plans to release Xbox TV streaming stick next year



Microsoft plans to release Xbox TV streaming stick next year


With cloud-based gaming platforms, companies like Microsoft can now change their strategy in new ways that weren’t possible before. Nearly a year and a half ago, Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer revealed that it would be possible to stream Xbox games to your TV “within the next 12 months.” The same was repeated in June 2021, when Microsoft confirmed that it would offer a Smart TV app and an Xbox streaming device in the same time frame.

In a new report from Venture Beat, “Microsoft plans to launch an Xbox cloud game streaming device” that will launch within the next 12 months. This, according to “people familiar with the matter.” The delays are likely due to supply chain restrictions caused by major disruptions in Ukraine due to the invasion and in China due to lockdowns.

It is speculated that such a device would resemble an Amazon Fire TV Stick or a Roku-like drive form factor. This device would allow you to stream from Movie and TV apps as well as access Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

It is also reported that Microsoft and Samsung are working closely together to develop this streaming app so that Samsung Smart TV owners do not even need to purchase a dedicated device for this purpose. This would also be released within the next 12 months.
