Gaming Hub works as a gaming hub for Game Pass, Google Stadia, GeForce NOW and Utomik, where you can launch titles directly and manage connected consoles on your TV easily, without having to search for each HDMI input. The interface still offers access to Twitch, YouTube, Spotify and, soon, it will also have integration with Amazon Luna. Of course, you also need to have an active subscription to these paid services to be able to take advantage of them.
Just check if your TV is up to date or go to the settings menu to check if there are any packages that can be downloaded.
