Posted on June 30, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in Amazon, Music + Videos, Windows 10 with 21 Comments

An Amazon Prime Video app is now available for Windows 10 in the Microsoft Store. It’s virtually identical to the web experience. That said, it does support downloading content for offline viewing, unlike the web app.

“Watch movies and TV shows recommended for you, including Amazon Originals like The Boys, Hunters, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, and much more,” the app description reads.

Amazon lists the following app features:

  • Download videos to watch offline – anywhere, anytime.
  • Rent or buy thousands of titles including new release movies, popular TV shows, and more (not available in all countries/regions).
  • With Prime Video Channels, Prime members can subscribe to more than 150 premium and specialty channels like HBO, SHOWTIME, STARZ, and Cinemax. Only pay for the channels you want, no cable required, cancel anytime (not available in all countries/regions).
  • With X-Ray, view IMDb information about the actors, songs, and trivia for videos as you stream.

You can download the Amazon Prime Video app from the Microsoft Store.
