Video game streaming services are becoming increasingly popular and it wasn’t particularly surprising when Amazon decided to unveil its own service titled Amazon Luna earlier last year. The service works similar to other video game streaming service allowing players to enjoy titles that otherwise wouldn’t be possible in their devices. While the service supported high-end smartphones at start, the streaming service is adding support for new models on an ongoing basis. Earlier today, Amazon announced the support for Galaxy S21 series.
As mentioned earlier, Amazon’s Luna was revealed earlier last year and a number of Samsung smartphones from 2019 and 2020 already support the streaming service. These devices include the Galaxy S10 and S10+, Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+, the Galaxy S20 as well as the Galaxy Note 20 series. And now, Luna’s official Twitter account revealed that the streaming service will now be supported by the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Similar to other streaming services, you’ll still need to use a specific controller in case you want to play different games through the streaming platform. While Amazon has its own controller for Luna, you can also use Xbox Wireless Controller, Sony DualShock 4 or the Kishi from Razer giving the streaming service an edge compared to other companies in the industry.
As Luna is still in the early access stage, you might want to try out other smartphones. Right now, you can stream different titles on compatible devices through services such as Microsoft’s Project xCloud, Google’s Stadia and NVIDIA GeForce Now.
