Amazon Luna hits Android – These devices are supported

One of Google’s Stadia biggest competitors is Amazon Luna, and now the platform is getting a remarkable expansion. Amazon Luna is now available on Android devices.

At launch, Amazon Luna surprised most people by launching on Windows, Fire TV, the web, and Apple’s iOS, which at the time had no support for cloud gaming platforms. Meanwhile, Android remained on the waiting list. Now Amazon has opened the doors to Luna on Android.

Like on iOS, Luna for Android is a web app accessible at Amazon says you should use the Chrome browser and Android 9 or higher. The company also mentioned that its own Luna controller, as well as Bluetooth controllers such as the DualShock 4 and Xbox One Controller, are also supported. You can even “install” Luna as a Progressive Web App on your home screen, complete with a new user interface when you do that.

Oddly, Amazon limits this web app to only a limited number of devices. For now, you will need one of the following to play Amazon Luna on Android:

  • Pixel 4 XL
  • Pixel 4a
  • Pixel 4a 5G
  • Pixel 5
  • Samsung Galaxy S10
  • Samsung Galaxy S10 +
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10+
  • Samsung Galaxy S20
  • Samsung Galaxy S20 +
  • Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra
  • OnePlus 7
  • OnePlus 7 Pro
  • OnePlus 8
  • OnePlus 8 Pro
  • OnePlus Nord
  • OnePlus 7T
  • OnePlus 7T Pro
  • OnePlus 7T Pro

It’s a bit strange that Amazon has a restriction on the web app in the first place, given that your device’s specs shouldn’t matter that much in theory. Even stranger, however, is that this list omits some obvious devices. For example, why is the Pixel 4 XL supported but not the Pixel 4? And where is the Galaxy Note 20 series? If you try to access Luna from an unsupported device, the page will show errors, at least in some cases. My Note 20 Ultra was working fine, but a Galaxy Z Fold 2 failed after choosing my account. Your results may vary. In particular, Stadia supports all Android devices.

Regardless of the odd limitation, seeing Luna appear on Android is great. Amazon says more devices will be added while Luna is in early access. You can request an invite to the service at $ 5.99 / month here.
