Here's Doom Eternal Streaming On A Smart Fridge Through Game Pass
Xbox Game Pass streaming opens up the "can it run Doom" meme to new devices and Doom games.
Getting 1993's Doom running on unusual devices has become a fun meme, with the most recent example being a monochrome version of the classic FPS running on a pregnancy test. Now, thanks to Xbox Game Pass and its recent addition of Doom Eternal, it's possible to run the most recent Doom on even more devices--even a fridge.
Now that game streaming has come to Xbox Game Pass via Cloud Gaming, you can run your games through Android devices. It's not just phones and tablets, either--one player has got the service up and running on their fancy smart fridge.
In an Instagram post, Richard Mallard (Twisted420) showed off Doom Eternal running on his Samsung smart fridge. It's running through a Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, which has Smart View, allowing him to project the game through the fridge.
In the video below, Mallard says that there's "a bit of latency" playing the game this way, but on the plus side it's easier than ever to grab a drink while you're playing.
It's not just Doom Eternal, either--it looks like a wide variety of games are playable on fridge with the right set-up.
If you want to play Doom Eternal on the go but don't want to use data or link your device up with an expensive fridge, the game is still coming to Nintendo Switch.
