Amazon’s Luna Cloud Gaming Service Now Available on Android

Amazon’s cloud gaming service, Luna, is now available on Android, Amazon announced on Tuesday. Like the iOS version of Luna, there is no separate Luna app to download – instead, you will use the service through a Chrome web browser.

Amazon launched Luna in early October, where it was initially available via PC, Mac, Fire TV and web apps on iPhones and iPads. The service operates on a channel-based model, where you pay a monthly fee for each channel you want to reach.

Currently, two channels are available. Amazon’s $ 5.99 per month Loon Plus channel features games from several different publishers, and Ubisoft’s $ 14.99 per month Ubisoft Plus channel has Ubisoft games available. (Paying a $ 14.99 per month fee for the Ubisoft Plus channel gives you the convenience of Ubisoft Plus on PC and on Google’s cloud gaming service, Stadia.)

Luna is only available in the US right now, and if you don’t already have early access, you can request it here. If you have early access and want to start playing Luna on Android, follow the instructions In this video:
