1) Requirements for Amazon Luna
Playing Amazon Luna it’s simple, since any modern web browser is enough to open the dashboard and start playing immediately. PC browsers, Mac browsers, and any modern device, including Android browsers, are supported. The Amazon Luna app is directly present on Fire TV and compatible Smart TVs, which can be downloaded and associated with our Amazon account.
The technical requirements only concern the speed of the Internet connection, which makes a difference to the quality of the game transmitted on the screen. The requirements are as follows:
- 1080p video quality: Internet connection of at least 10 Mbps speed
- 720p video quality: Internet connection of at least 5 Mbps speed
For maximum performance we recommend using the Ethernet cable connection to the modem, but only if the latter is in the same room, since it is not easy to pass the cable through the wall ducts.
If we want to play with the Wi-Fi network we advise you to use the 5 GHz band of the modem; if we don’t have a compatible modem we can read the ai guide best modern routers for gaming.
Other useful settings to always obtain maximum speed include deactivating the VPN and any active proxy. If we are using the Fire TV to play or directly the compatible Smart TV, make sure that Game or Gaming mode is enabled on the TV.
To test the speed of the Internet network we can read the guides on how to check the speed of your internet connection come on how much internet speed do you need nowadays.
