So, today we are going to talk about Amazon Luna.
What is Luna Amazon?
Luna is a cloud gaming service by Amazon that allows users to play games using compatible devices like Fire TV, PC, and Mac. Moreover, the service can also be accessed web apps on iPhones and iPad. While this cloud gaming service enables you to play already owned games without having a gaming console, or PC. As it is NVIDIA GPU powered so it will work faster and will fetch you quite an immersive gaming experience. Further, it can be integrated with Tweak to stream games more effectively.
How many games will Luna feature?
