Samsung Smart Fridge Can Play Xbox Titles via xCloud?! A weird Breakthrough with a Lot of Questions

We know that Samsung recently added support for xCloud. This allowed the company to actually run Xbox Cloud gaming, those who have Gamepass, on their Samsung devices. A selling feature of the Note 20 lineup. Now though, something weird has coming up. Weirdly interesting, that is. Samsung is known for other products as well and mixing tech with home appliances is something recent that they have started. In this interesting tweet from blue nugroho, we see that Richard Mallard on Instagram posted something interesting.

Now, xCloud is an interesting service from Xbox and they have included different titles, Gamepass exclusives to them as well. Now, this person right here has managed to run the program on the fridge’s smart display. This is still unsure how this was possible but the screen seems to be running a version of android. This is quite apparent from the status bar up on top.

Now, we are still unsure of the experience altogether. Since it is a fridge and not a dedicated machine for this, we do not know how well the games would run. Not to mention, the WiFi chipset on these devices would not be the best one out there. Furthermore, these would not have the best, high-resolution panels or even those which are higher refresh rate ones. The aspect ratio is a big concern as well. But then, this is something just odd and not everyone would be doing this. Let’s see, when the person releases the video, how the experience really is.
