Amazon brings 720p streaming support to Luna cloud gaming service to tackle poor connectivity

Amazon is adding a new streaming option to its Luna cloud gaming platform that will limit resolution to 720p to improve stability for players with slower internet connections. Currently, Luna only streams in 1080p, with 4K at some point in the future. But even at 1080p, internet connections that struggle to keep up with the high bandwidth demands of cloud gaming can result in latency, lag, and audio problems for the player when using a service like Luna. Amazon now says that users of Luna in the early access beta – the platform has yet to be released to the public – can enable 720p streaming mode in the settings panel to improve performance.

“One of the most requested features is the ability to play at lower resolutions to match unique Internet connection speeds and bandwidth requirements,” the company said in a statement to The Verge. “Starting today, we are enabling a new 720p option, which allows for less bandwidth and data consumption by streaming at a lower resolution.” Amazon also suggests that the lower-resolution setting for Luna will help those who have home Internet data caps, such as those Comcast has said it will begin imposing on its customers this July.

Luna came out in early access last fall with a unique channel model that borrows concepts from cable and streaming television. Instead of paying a fee to use a service like Nvidia GeForce Now or buying your games directly like on Google Stadia, Luna itself is free to use, but access to streamed games is shielded behind “channels” with individual monthly subscriptions. The only two currently available are Amazon’s Luna Plus channel ($5.99 per month) and a dedicated Ubisoft channel ($14.99).
