You can now enjoy Amazon Luna cloud gaming on Android devices
Amazon Luna started last October in an early access phase. It worked on PCs, Macs, Amazon Fire TV devices, and also on Apple mobiles and tablets thanks to a web application that works with Safari on iOS 14. It was surprising that Android, the platform that leads the market by far in the number of devices, was left out of the launch.
In principle, and officially, Luna on Android will only work on 21 devices. These are:
- Pixel (4XL, 4a, 4a 5G, 5)
- Samsung: (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)

- Chrome 86 or higher.
