Amazon Luna is a cloud gaming service that can turn your living room into a gaming hotspot. Using the service is easy-peasy; sign up to Amazon Luna and start playing!

Not having to spend a load of money just to get a gaming rig setup sounds great!
Hence, it is obvious that a lot of people will be taking advantage of this deal. If you too have signed up on Amazon Luna on your Firestick, you will have to connect a controller to get started. Connecting a controller is not that difficult, but users can get confused with the Firestick settings. To help you out with the same, here is a quick guide on how to connect the Luna controller to your Firestick. Take a look, and start gaming!
Steps to connect Luna controller to Firestick:
Turn on the Luna controller and put it in Bluetooth pairing mode. To put the controller into Bluetooth pairing mode, press and hold the Action button and B button for 3 seconds. You should see a pulsing white light, indicating that the controller is in Bluetooth mode. Make sure that there are no devices nearby with their Bluetooth turned on.
Now, in your firestick, go into Settings > Controllers and Bluetooth devices > Game controllers > Add New Game Controller. You should see your Luna controller appear in the list of available devices to pair. Select the device, to pair. This will connect your Firestick to your Luna controller.
Once, the devices are paired, you can use the controller as a remote for the Firestick. This is applicable even after you exit the Luna app. The controller will automatically switch modes to adapt. To track the change in the type of connection, just look at the light color of the Home Button. When the color changes from purple to white, your controller has switched the connection type. This is done for the best user experience. The Luna controller switches to Cloud direct mode when the user is actively playing games.
