Unpacking Samsung Unpacked and Xbox.
Microsoft and Samsung took to the stage at Samsung Unpacked recently to describe how Project xCloud game streaming will gain additional benefits on Samsung Galaxy phones.
With Apple blocking Project xCloud on its iOS devices, Android is now the defacto best platform for Xbox fans, with game streaming set to launch as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on September 13, 2020.

In any case, those of us on Android can rest easy that Xbox Game Pass game streaming will be supported. But those of us with Samsung Galaxy devices are getting some additional benefits. Let's explore what they are, and how the partnership is going to help Xbox reach that tens of millions of new customers.
