Samsung has partnered with the biggest players in cloud-based gaming, adding support for game streaming in the new Samsung Gaming Hub. Join this list today by Amazon Luna, one of the newest game streaming services on the block.
Amazon Luna came out of beta testing back in March, launching the service with several different game channels, ready to cater to every gamer’s needs. Amazon’s bread and butter consists of three channels: Luna Channel +, Retro Channel, and Family Channel. Each has its own gaming category, with Luna+ being the highest category. If you’re already an Amazon Prime member, as with most people, you can also access the Prime Channel, which is updated regularly with some very popular titles.
Amazon Luna and Samsung have announced a partnership to bring all your gaming channel services to the new Gaming Hub, an app on Samsung’s latest smart TVs and displays that brings all your favorite services in one place. The benefit here is that it eliminates the need to download a separate app for Amazon Luna, giving players a place to just jump in and play.
Samsung’s Gaming Hub launched a little over a month ago, bringing in big names like Nvidia GeForce Now, Xbox, and Stadia. When it was announced, it was a huge step for cloud gaming, as it brings more people closer to these services. With the addition of Amazon Luna, this is just another big name that brings more options to users.
Like most streaming services, Amazon Luna offers more than several ways to play. After all, this is the pull to a cloud-based gaming service. Players can jump on a PC, Mac, Android device, iOS device, and even a Chromebook. However, before partnering with Samsung, the only way to play on TV was through Amazon’s Fire Stick.
Now, players only need the basics to get into the game. Simply turn on your Samsung TV with the Gaming Hub and connect the Amazon Luna console. Perhaps the best part about the Gaming Hub is the ability to easily switch from playing on one service to another. Once you’ve finished playing a game from Amazon Luna, switch the Gaming Hub to Xbox Game Pass, where you can find more titles available at your fingertips. To get started, simply link your Amazon Luna account to the Gaming Hub and you are good to go!
According to Samsung, more than 1,000 games are available to play in the Gaming Hub as of today. This is a huge step for not only Amazon Luna but also Samsung. We look forward to seeing more and more companies adopting cloud gaming as the sub-category becomes more competitive.
