Amazon Luna’s 720p streams help you play with a bad connection

It’s great that some game streaming services let you stream at 1080p or even 4K, but that’s not so good if you’re concerned about data limits or a slow connection. Fortunately, Amazon comes to that realization. It has just introduced a 720p option for its Luna service that can reduce data consumption while maintaining smooth gameplay. You just need to go to the Settings tab in Luna to enable the lower resolution.

Luna isn’t the only platform for streaming games at 720p, of course – Google Stadia and Microsoft’s xCloud have been making it available for a while, and in the case of xCloud, it was the default. Amazon’s move could make Luna viable if you had to rule it out earlier, and it might make the most sense if you play on your phone a lot and maybe don’t miss 1080p as much as you do on your TV.
