Five things you should know about Amazon Luna

While most of us have been obsessed with the recent launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, Amazon has not so quietly released a new gaming streaming service.It has a pretty good selection of games with 76 titles and growing currently available. It’s something worth considering. If you don’t take a side in the console wars or desperately wait for them to be restocked in stores again, Amazon is specifically looking for gamers like you.And starting from $5.99/month, it’s a pretty sweet deal, especially if you’re already in the Amazon ecosystem. What’s cool is they partnered with Ubisoft to create an exclusive gaming channel you can add to your subscription for an additional $14.99/month. This is how you’ll get to play all the best titles like Far Cry 6 and the new Assassin’s Creed.Is Amazon Luna the right call for you? Here the five most important things you need to know to help you make that decision.Currently Only Available in the US*Sorry international fans, but you can only access Amazon Luna in the US. That even includes Canada, which has its typically robust collection of Prime Video movies and shows.Fortunately, we have a little trick up our sleeves if you want to try it out and you’re not in the US. You can use NordVPN to change your virtual location to the US.In effect, Amazon thinks you’re browsing from there to enjoy all the great gaming titles and other US-based content. Don’t forget VPNs also have many other gaming benefits, including blocking DDoS attacks and enhancing performance in some situations.You Don’t Need a Luna ControllerThis will shock most gamers, but you can buy the Luna Controller if you want, but you can still play using an Xbox One, PS4, or mouse and keyboard (we haven’t heard yet about controllers from the new consoles). On mobile, you can use touch controls.But you might be interested in picking up a Luna Controller anyway. It’s directly connected to the cloud, reducing lag time, and it comes with Alexa.Play Across ScreensAmazon Luna is powered by AWS (Amazon Web Service). We won’t bore you on the technical details, but that means you’re using Amazon’s vast network of data centers to play.That’s why you can play using the relatively wimpy Amazon FireTV and also seamlessly switch to your mobile.The only thing you’ll need to enjoy these games is a fast internet connection. You can even play in your web browser.You Won’t Need too Much BandwidthIf you’re already gaming online, you likely won’t need to change your internet subscription. Currently, Amazon Luna requires a minimum of 10 Mbps for standard HD games and 35 Mbps for 4K. Do note only select titles are even in 4K for now.If you’re on any limited data plan, keep in mind Amazon predicts that cloud gaming generally can take up 10 GB/hour if streaming at 1080P. Don’t worry, though. Mobile gaming has been optimized for data connections, so you don’t burn through your plan that fast!For Mobile, Android is the Way to GoSorry iOS users, since Apple has gotten way too protective over its App store, you won’t quite find the same native-level support for Amazon Luna. You’re basically playing through the Safari browser.On the other hand, Android phones are better equipped. However, not all Android phones will work. You’ll need a flagship phone from 2019 or newer to support the specs.So far, Amazon confirms these phones can support Amazon Luna:Google: Pixel 4XL, 4A 5G, 5One Plus 7. 7 Pro, 7 Pro 5G, 8, 8 Pro, Nord, 7T seriesSamsung Galaxy S10, Note 10, S20, Note 20 seriesIs it Time To Try Out Luna?It’s a pretty solid offer. Rather than shell out for a console, it can be a better way to enjoy your gaming. If you’ve just sunk $500 on a new Xbox or Sony, we say forget about it.But for those who haven’t made up their minds or are waiting, it’s worth checking out.EDITOR NOTE: This is a promoted post and should not be viewed as an editorial endorsement.

How to use Watch Party with Amazon Prime Video to stream videos together online

We’ve seen a lot of normal every day activities change during the coronavirus pandemic. Some have changed for the short term, but some will be long-lasting changes. Before COVID-19 hit a lot of us took for granted the ability to get together with friends and family to watch movies and TV.Fortunately, many of the streaming services have stepped up with Watch Party features to allow us to stream together while apart. Some of the services that support this include Disney+, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video.Today, we’ll look at how to start a Watch Party on Prime Video so you can watch your favorite shows and movies with others.Heads Up!Before you get started, every member of the watch party must either rent or own the video you’d like to watch. Alternatively, if it is a Prime eligible video title, then every member will need to be a Prime subscriber.Furthermore, Watch Party is only available on the web at this time. Every member will need to use the browser on their computer to join, and Apple’s Safari browser is not supported.Let’s Go!Now, follow these simple steps below and get to binge-watching with your friends and family.1. Open the video title you’d like to watch in Prime Video using your desktop browser.2. Click on the “Watch Party” icon.3. Enter the name you’d like to use while chatting and click Create Watch Party.4. Copy the link to your Watch Party and share it with up to 100 friends.

Once everyone joins in, the host of the Watch Party can start the video. It’s important to note only the host will have control over the playback of the video, just like in the good ole days when one person was in control of the remote.

Amazon’s cloud gaming service Luna now supports a limited number of Android phones

Yesterday, Luna announced via its Twitter page that several Android phones now have support to play games using the service. The list includes a selection of flagship phones from Google, OnePlus, and Samsung. Check below for the full list.Google Pixel 4 XL (Pixel 4 isn’t mentioned for some reason)Google Pixel 4aGoogle Pixel 4a 5GGoogle Pixel 5OnePlus 7/7 Pro/7 Pro 5GOnePlus 7T/7T Pro/7T Pro 5GOnePlus 8/8 ProOnePlus NordSamsung Galaxy S10/S10+Samsung Galaxy Note 10/10+Samsung Galaxy S20 5G/S20+ 5G/S20 Ultra 5GSamsung Galaxy Note 20To access Luna, you’ll need one of the supported phones running Android 9 or above, an active subscription to the service, and the Chrome browser. This is similar to how it works on iOS as well. Which begs the question, why is Luna limited to a specific set of flagship phones if all it requires is the Chrome browser?Most likely, Amazon is starting with a handful of phones that are popular and have been thoroughly tested on the service. We are sure to see the list of devices grow next year, the same way Google started with a limited number of Android phones and added additional ones at a later date. In fact, now you can enable support for most phones by turning on the experimental feature in the Stadia app.Hey @TheCodeB00K, as Raghu from Team Luna explains below, you won’t have to wait very long for Android support (or, like, at all). Play Luna with early access now: https://t.co/IU81kXZouU pic.twitter.com/aVDCbQcP64— Amazon Luna (@amazonluna) December 15, 2020Amazon announced its foray into cloud gaming on September 24, 2020, of this year. At this time, Luna is only available via an invitation after signing up for the early access program. Once you sign up, you’ll get a free 7-day trial, and at the end of it, you’ll be charged $5.99 per month. For that price, you get access to a selection of games on the Luna platform, and you can also subscribe to additional channels such as Ubisoft+ for $14.99/month to play games in its library.Alongside the launch of Luna, Amazon also released its very own controller made for the service. Similar to Google’s Stadia controller, the Luna controller connects directly to Amazon’s servers for low latency gameplay. However, it also works via Bluetooth and USB allowing you to use it outside of the Luna service. Something the Stadia controller doesn’t allow for.The Luna controller retails for $70 but can be picked up for $50 during the early-access program if you’ve received an invite. If you’re not sure about the service, then you can still play using a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One controller by connecting it to your PC or mobile device.
