In October, Amazon launched its cloud gaming service called Luna in early access, making it available on Windows, macOS, Fire OS, and iOS devices via web apps. Android was notably left out in the list, although that changes now.
Amazon announced today that Luna is rolling out to some Android devices in early access in mainland U.S. The announcement was made via the service's official Twitter account, complete with an instructional video.
Hey @TheCodeB00K, as Raghu from Team Luna explains below, you won’t have to wait very long for Android support (or, like, at all). Play Luna with early access now: https://t.co/IU81kXZouU pic.twitter.com/aVDCbQcP64— Amazon Luna (@amazonluna) December 15, 2020
Since it's cloud-based, Luna does not require a separate app to download. You can directly access the service through the Chrome browser on Android. For now, Luna’s Android version only works on Chrome's version 86 or later on the following devices:
Google Pixel (4XL, 4a, 4a 5G, 5)
Samsung Galaxy (S10, S10+, Note 10, Note 10+, S20 5G, S20+ 5G, S20 Ultra 5G, Note 20)
OnePlus (7, 7 Pro, 7 Pro 5G, 8, 8 Pro, Nord, 7T, 7T Pro, 7T Pro 5G)
Its availability is further restricted to Android 9 or later. Amazon vows to add support for more devices as part of Luna’s early access release. If you want to give it a try now, you can request an early access here.
