Amazon's cloud gaming service Luna is opening up to more devices, including Fire tablets, Chromebooks and the new Fire TV 4K Max, the company announced Thursday. 

The company is also introducing a new channel, the $3-a-month Family Channel, which includes kid-friendly games like SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom and Garfield Kart Furious Racing.

"Amazon Luna is already available today to all Fire TV customers without an invitation and this week we're adding support for Fire tablets so we're bringing it to the full family of Fire devices. We're also adding support for Chromebooks," an Amazon spokesperson confirmed.

The service is also introducing Luna Couch, which lets you play Luna games with friends online -- whether your friends are subscribers or not.

Amazon Luna is the company's answer to streaming game services such as Google Stadia and PS Now. Luna is also available on Windows PC, Mac, Fire TV and web apps for the iPhone, iPad and select Android phones from Pixel, Samsung and OnePlus.

The company is also offering discounted bundles for a limited time:

Amazon introduced Luna in 2020 and opened access to all Prime members in June with a seven-day free trial. The service currently costs $6 a month; you can also trade up to the Ubisoft Plus channel for $15 a month.
