Mobile gaming is a big and profitable industry these days, but few have tried to develop it beyond just playing games. Social platforms are about games on consoles and computers, but very few people trying to make this happen on mobile mostly revolve around live streaming games only, something that only the most interesting players and characters are keen on. Amazon aims to make this social aspect of gaming accessible to everyone with its new GameOn platform that finally arrives on iPhones and iPads months after its launch.
Although it already has one of the largest live game streaming platforms on the market, Amazon still chose to develop a new platform late last year. While Twitch has centered around long videos in past hours, GameOn has focused on sharing short videos up to five minutes long. Think of it like TikTok for gameplay videos compared to Twitch’s YouTube.
Amazon GameOn It was launched in November last year but was limited to the Android platform, perhaps because of some technical and legal issues that Amazon still has to solve, bearing in mind that Apple has tighter restrictions when it comes to screen recording apps. For the growing community of GameOn users, the wait is finally over and the app is over available now In the Apple App Store.
GameOn lets players record videos from 30 seconds to five minutes, featuring special in-game moments or even brief tutorials. Instead of just uploading these clips instantly to the cloud, the app also allows players to edit videos to add caption or even your face using the front camera. The Recall Recording feature can save the last 30 seconds up to two minutes of gameplay.
However, it depends on the game being played but GameOn prides itself on being compatible with over a thousand mobile titles, including PUBG Mobile, Crossy Road, and even Angry Birds 2. However, Amazon has yet to release some stats showing how Significantly, the social platform has grown in the past four months since its launch.
