This is most likely Schlumbergera, the Christmas Cactus.
They are not the same as most plants that go by the name of cactus, as they don’t have spines.
The segments of the plant are actually parts of stem, modified for water storage. More about that here; Definition of Succulent.
See more about Schlumbergera.
There are several other similar plants that all look similar, and are grouped into the name ‘Holiday Cactus’.
