Later, the company confirmed last year that it will launch a TV streaming stick and a Smart TV app soon.

The streaming device is expected to be somewhat similar to Amazon Fire TV Stick. Apart from streaming thousands of movies, shows, and numerous online applications, players could also get access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

If reports are to be believed, tech giant Samsung is partnering with Microsoft to develop the cloud gaming app, which should be launched by the next year. After the launch, Samsung TV users will have an access to the app without subscription.
