Amazon Luna gaming service reaches Android


Amazon said Tuesday that its Cloud Games Service (Luna) is now available for Google's Android mobile devices.

Like apple's iOS version, the Android version does not require a separate Luna app, as the service can instead be accessed through a chrome web browser.

Amazon announced luna's early access last October, when it was only available to Personal Computers, Apple's Mac computers, fire TV platform, iPhone smartphones and iPad tablets through web applications.

The service operates through the channel-based model, where the user can pay a monthly fee for each of the gaming channels they want to access.

Two channels, the first, Luna Plus, are now available for a monthly fee of $5.99, which allows users to access games from many different publishers. The other channel, Ubisoft Plus, is available for a higher fee of US$14.99, but offers all of the company's games. By participating in this service, users can access Ubisoft Plus for personal computers and Google's Stadia cloud gaming service.

Luna is now available to users in the United States only, and those who do not yet have early access to the service can request it here.

Currently, the Android version of Luna is working on some pixel phones from Google, some Samsung phones, and some OnePlus phones, but Amazon says it will add support to more Android phones during the early access phase of the service.

It should be noted that the service only supports Android phones running version 9 and beyond, and uses version 86 and beyond of chrome browser. Users can play games with The Luna Control Arm, as well as Sony's PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's Xbox One console.
