Amazon’s Luna cloud gaming service is now available on Android

Amazon’s cloud gaming service, Luna, is now available on Android. Like the iOS version of Luna, there’s no separate Luna app to download, one can access the service through the Chrome web browser.

Amazon launched Luna in October, where it was available on PC, Mac, Fire TV, and on iPhone and iPad via web apps. The service works on a channels-based model, where one pays a monthly fee for each channel of games wants access to.

Currently, there are two channels available. Amazon’s $5.99-per-month Luna Plus channel has games from many different publishers, and Ubisoft’s $14.99-per-month Ubisoft Plus channel offers Ubisoft games.

Presently, Luna’s Android version works on some Pixel, Samsung, and OnePlus devices, but Amazon says Luna will extend support for more Android devices during Luna’s early access period. An Amazon spokesperson shared a list of currently-supported devices:

  • Pixel 4XL, 4A, 4A 5G, 5
  • Samsung Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, Note 10, Note 10 Plus, S20, S20 Plus, S20 Ultra, Note 20, Note 20 Ultra
  • OnePlus 7, 7 Pro, 7 Pro 5G, 8, 8 Pro, Nord, 7T, 7T Pro, 7T Pro 5G

One needs to be using Android 9 or higher and Chrome version 86 or newer. He will be able to play games using Amazon’s own Luna controller as well as the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One controller.
