Amazon has just introduced a better and preferable way of accessing the video service, it is the new Amazon Prime video app for Windows 10. You can now stream videos on with app instead of your desktop browsers.
Using app provides better experience than your normal browser but you have to note that the new app doesn’t appear to support streaming rates above 720p. But you will still enjoy all the features along with offline viewing.
Amazon listed the Prime video app as 4K UHD in the app itself, but the company mentioned that the app can stream and download up to 1080p HD, but may vary per content.
Features of Amazon Prime Video app for Windows 10
There are lots of benefits and features of using Windows 10, but attached to that are the disadvantages, however we consider it is safe to say that streaming video content via the new Prime Video app is quite advantageous.
- You can now download videos to watch offline
- You can rent or buy thousands of titles including new release movies, popular TV shows, and more
- With Prime Video Channels, Prime members can subscribe to more than 150 premium and specialty channels like HBO, SHOWTIME, STARZ, and Cinemax.
- You can only pay for the channels you want, no cable required, cancel anytime
- With X-Ray, view IMDb information about the actors, songs, and trivia for videos as you stream.
Another amazing idea that comes in line with the new dedicated Prime Video Windows app, is allowing you to download videos on a Windows device to view offline. It was not possible with the browser version, it is still the same with other video streaming service, such as Netflix.
However, you can download your favorite content in three tiers for video quality, Good, Better, and Best, with each tier using progressively more storage. The app does not indicate the corresponding resolution to each tier. We recommend that you leave a large empty memory space for surprises.
