(Pocket-lint) - Luna, Amazon’s cloud gaming service, is now available on Android, Amazon has announced. You do not need to download an independent Luna app, just like the iOS version, because you can access the service through the Chrome web browser on your Android device.

Luna, which launched in early access in October on PC, Mac, Fire TV, and on iPhone and iPad through web apps, costs $5.99 per month for Luna Plus and offers games from many different publishers. It also offers Ubisoft Plus for $14.99 per month. Paying for the Ubisoft Plus channel also means you can access Ubisoft Plus on PC and on Google’s cloud gaming service, Stadia. Just keep in mind Luna is only available in the US right now.

To request early access, go here. But if you already have early access, you can begin playing Luna on Android now. The video below explains more.
