Microsoft and Samsung are engaged in cloud gaming.

During a major product event, Samsung announced on Tuesday that it will collaborate with Microsoft to bring cloud gaming capabilities to future phones.

Although Samsung did not name Microsoft’s emerging cloud streaming service, xCloud, the alliance is likely to offer similar or the same services for Samsung devices.

“This is just the beginning of our gaming partnership with Xbox,” said David S. Park, head of Samsung’s US marketing at the Samsung ‘Unpacked’ event on Tuesday.

“Both Samsung and Xbox share a vision for providing great gaming experiences to mobile players around the world. With our 5G-compatible portfolios and Microsoft’s rich gaming history, we work closely together to create a premium cloud-based gaming streaming experience. You will hear more about it later this year. “

As noted by The Verge, xCloud from Microsoft has already started testing xCloud on Samsung phones and is working with the companies to perfect the experience.

“It is of the utmost importance that partners accompany us on our journey to deliver high-quality game streaming to players,” said Kareem Choudhry, head of Project xCloud at Microsoft, in a statement to The Verge.

“We’ve seen positive feedback from Project xCloud preview participants testing different Galaxy devices, and it only gets better if we continue to work closely with Samsung to refine the experience. It’s an exciting time to work on Project xCloud and we can’t wait to share more about our work with Samsung later this year. “

Although Samsung has not given many details about when the partnership will be exactly, xCloud has already started rolling out for test users everywhere and has recently found its way to iOS devices.

With xCloud, users can connect to their own dedicated Xbox console via the internet in the giant server farms of Microsoft all over the world.

With the help of a mobile phone, tablet or other device, the live video is streamed to their device. Using controls on the screen or a joypad, users play in exactly the same way as if they were using a console.

The key to the service, Microsoft admits, is to come fast enough fast enough so that the user does not notice any delay between moving the controller and changing the game.

Microsoft started testing the service last year and said it hopes to have a full release this year.
