The long awaited Amazon cloud gaming platform is here. Luna will be launching soon and is now accepting early access. We received access and will guide you through how to install and start playing games on Amazon Luna through the Amazon Fire TV.
Getting the App
The Amazon Luna app is not an app on the Fire TV on default. You will have to search it up and download it. Start by going to your search tab and search: “Luna” or “Luna app”. It should popup as the first option with the purple logo.
Select the app and click “Get” to start your download. The download time might be different depending on your internet and WiFi speeds. When the download is complete it will install the app. When that is complete, hit “Open” to start playing Luna.
Navigating Luna on Fire TV
Once you are in the Luna app, it will ask you who is playing. You have the option to have another user login to play Luna on one account. Choose your user to continue. Luna will then show you a tip screen to get started. Read them over then hit “OK”. After this, you will come to the dashboard.
The Luna Home dashboard is where you will find the latest game releases, featured games, and top game picks, plus your most previously played games. If you would like more information the full app which includes info about the other tabs, click on the Getting Stated with Luna video above.
I have my Luna controller synced to my WiFi and I am ready to play. You can also use your Luna controller to navigate through the Luna app as well. If you don’t have a Luna controller, feel free to sync another Bluetooth controller of your choice in the Settings then Bluetooth devices option. You can also sync your Luna controller here as well.
