  1. Amazon has put the Luna Controller on sale for $48.99 as part of its many early Prime Day deals. That is 30% off its regular price of $69.99. This is also the new lowest price that the controller has ever been, however, it’s just $1 less than the $49.99 introductory price that Amazon offered customers for months after the controller launched. The Luna Controller is unique in that it can connect via WiFi directly to the internet when used with Amazon’s Luna cloud gaming service. This allows it to work for Luna gaming through a number of devices, like Fire TVs, iPhones, iPads, Android phones, computers, and more, without connecting to those devices directly. The direct WiFi connection also results in less input latency than a traditional Bluetooth connection. However, the controller does still support Bluetooth connections, as well as wired connections via USB-C, if you want to use it for something other than Luna gaming. SOURCE: AFTVNEWS.COM
  2. Amazon will be allowing “priority access” to Luna, its cloud gaming service, during Prime Day, June 21-22. This probably doesn’t mean much to the vast majority of you reding this, since Amazon has already removed the need for an invitation if you own a Fire TV. However, if you have been wanting to give Luna gaming a try, the standard 7-day free trial will be open to all Prime members later this month. SOURCE: AFTVNEWS.COM

  10. Amazon has updated Fire TV Edition televisions with a few unique Alexa voice commands. It’s now possible to change the picture mode of the TV using your voice. This lets you quickly switch between Standard, Movie, Game, and other picture modes with a single voice command. Similarly, you can also now change between the various sound modes, like Music mode or Enhanced Bass mode, just as easily through voice commands. For a bit more fine tuning, TV equalizer sound settings can also be changed individually by voice. To change the TV’s picture mode, just say “set the picture mode to [MODE NAME]” into the microphone on the voice remote. I believe this will also work by speaking to a paired Echo device, but I’m not certain. The picture modes available to switch between are Standard, Movie, Dynamic, Natural, Game, PC, and Custom. Each mode will set the different picture settings, like Backlight, Contrast, and Color, all at once. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to change individual picture settings by voice, so if you want to turn down just the Backlight a bit, you’ll still have to do that with your remote buttons. If there are just one or two settings that you change often, like reducing the backlight at night and increasing it again during the day, one tip is to set the “Custom” picture mode to be your usual settings but with those one or two settings changed. For example, if you like a dimmer screen at night to be easier on your eyes, then reduce just the Backlight setting in the Custom mode. That way you can say “set the picture mode to custom” for “nigh mode” and then say “set the picture mode to standard” to go back to “day mode.” For sound settings, you can change between Standard, Music, Movie, Clear Voice, Enhcaned Bass, and Custom sound modes by saying “change sound mode to [MODE NAME].” If switching between modes isn’t good enough, you can change the Bass or Treble settings individually by saying “increase/decrease bass/treble.” You can also jump to a specific value by saying “set bass/treble to [#]” where the number is between -25 and 25. You can also change the left and right speaker balance the same way. To reset these settings, just say “reset bass/treble/balance” or say “reset equalizer” to set them all back to their default settings. These new voice options should be available already on 2020 and newer Fire TV Edition televisions. Older Fire TV Edition models will also receive these voice capabilities in the future.

  16. There have been rumors of Microsoft releasing its own hardware for cloud gaming through its Xbox Cloud Gaming (xCloud) service for many years but now it’s actually happening. The company announced that it is building a standalone streaming device that can be plugged into a TV for xCloud gaming. It also announced that TV apps for xCloud, which currently only supports mobile devices, are coming soon. Microsoft hasn’t provided any details about the standalone hardware they are developing, nor a release date. They’ve simply stated that “Xbox is building its own streaming devices for cloud gaming to reach gamers on any TV or monitor without the need for a console at all.” It is presumed that the hardware will be a relatively low-powered device to keep costs down, since all the computing power needed to run the games will be in cloud servers. Microsoft’s head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, said last year that “you could imagine us even having something that we just included in the Game Pass subscription” when speaking about the possibility of releasing xCloud streaming hardware. Given that comment, the upcoming xCloud streaming device might come free with a paid subscription. Microsoft also says they will be releasing TV apps for xCloud, but, unfortunately, only stated this in regards to “TV manufacturers” and not streaming platforms like Fire TV, Android TV, or Apple TV. Xbox says it “is working with global TV manufacturers to embed the Xbox experience directly into internet-connected televisions with no extra hardware required except a controller.” This could mean that smart TV-only platforms, like those from Samsung and LG, will be the only ones receiving the aforementioned xCloud apps. Hopefully, the wording isn’t literal and that the app release goes beyond TVs to include streaming devices as well. SOURCE: AFTVNEWS.COM
