Amazon has announced the GameOn application for mobile gamers to share their gameplay. The app is currently available only for Android devices but will soon be available for iOS devices as well. This is Amazon's newest offering for the gaming community after the release of popular services like Twitch and Luna.
GameOn arrives with support for over 1,000 mobile games including the likes of PUBG Mobile, Angry Birds 2, Gardenscapes, Homescapes, and Final Fantasy. The app will let gamers record gameplay ranging between 30 seconds and five minutes. These clips can be edited within the app and shared with other community members. The best part is that users can even share clips with their own friends who are not part of the app's social network.
As for how to record gameplay using GameOn, the app supports the traditional method of recording the whole gameplay until you find that special moment or epic fail to share. It also has a unique feature called Recall that is beneficial for those who have low storage space. It lets users keep playing the game and once they have a moment that they would like to share, they can tap the Recall option to record the last few minutes of the gameplay. The option lets you configure the duration of the gameplay that the feature should record.
In an attempt to encourage gamers, GameOn has a Featured Challenges section. These challenges are designed in relation to the particular game so that gamers can also have fun while trying to complete them. Once the user has completed the challenge, they can share the gameplay with others to vote. There are special badges to win for top-ranked players,
