Now Samsung will bring Nfts to our living rooms via smart TVs
Samsung unveiled its vision for the next generation of smart TVs at the ongoing 2022 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The company said its new line of smart TVs will support newer services like cloud-based games, video chats, and even NFTs.
“With the growing demand for NFT, the need for a solution to today’s fragmented viewing and shopping landscape has never been greater,” the company told The Verge.
Samsung will unveil the “world’s first on-screen TV NFT market explorer and aggregator” in its MICRO LED, Neo QLED and The Frame TV models which are slated for deployment later this year.
Users will be able to browse, buy and view their NFTs. They will also be able to view the ownership history of NFTs and blockchain metadata. The TVs will come with an auto-calibration feature that will adjust their display settings to match those recommended by the NFT creator. The company has yet to announce who it will partner with to bring the NFT app to the forefront of its smart TVs.
Other features announced by the company regarding smart TVs are the “Watch Together” app, Samsung’s new “Gaming Hub” which supports cloud gaming, the new HDR10 + GAMING standard and a new “Smart Hub”.
The “Watch Together” app will allow family and friends to watch TV shows or movies on their TVs while being able to chat with each other via video calls.
Samsung’s new “Gaming Hub” presents the company’s big bet in a rapidly growing industry. The company announced partnerships with Nvidia GeForce NOW, Google’s Stadia and Utomik, with more to follow in the future to allow TV users to search and buy game titles right on their TVs and be able to play them instantly without the need for any additional hardware apart from game controllers. The “Gaming Hub” will also allow users to easily access YouTube as well as watch other video game streamers.
