Amazon is expanding access to it Luna cloud gaming service to select Android devices. 

The Android support is coming to newer phones from Samsung, Google’s Pixel brand, and OnePlus. However, the company isn’t delivering Luna through a dedicated Android app. Instead, Amazon is enabling access through the Chrome browser when subscribers visit Amazon.com/Luna on their Android phone. A prompt will appear asking the user to add the cloud gaming service as a web-based app to their device.  

“Launch the web app on your mobile phone, sign in, and you should be ready to start playing,” explained Luna product manager Raghu Chiravuri in the announcement. The phones will also need to have Android 9.0 or higher installed.

The change addresses a key gap in Luna. The $5.99-a-month service received high marks in PCMag’s review for offering an affordable way to stream games without needing to buy every single title. But we were disappointed to see the lack of Android support when other cloud gaming services, such as Google’s Stadia and Nvidia’s GeForce Now, are already available on the mobile operating system. 

Amazon plans on expanding Android support to even more phone models over time. But for now, Luna is still running in an early access mode, so only invited users in the US can try it out. To receive an invite, go to the Luna website and request one. 

Luna is also available on Windows PCs and Macs through the Chrome browser, Amazon Fire TV devices and on the iPhone and iPad via the Safari browser. To stream the games, your internet’s speed will need to be 10Mbps or higher.
