Amazon has finally developed a dedicated Prime Video client for macOS, allowing customers to watch and manage content directly from their computer. The program, which is now available in the Mac App Store, has several features that are not available in web browsers, such as downloading content for offline viewing.
Even though Amazon Prime Video can be viewed via a web browser, the native video app allows Mac users to watch content in picture-in-picture mode. This will make it easier for people to catch up on a show while working, text, or doing whatever else they normally do on their Mac.
The Prime Video native macOS software also includes offline watching with downloads, the ability to buy and rent material directly from the app, and support for multiple profiles if more than one person uses the same account. AirPlay is also supported in the native app.
Mac users can buy material using the payment method they’ve saved in their Amazon account, or they can make in-app payments through their Apple account. The native program is compatible with Mac systems running macOS 11.4 Big Sur or later, including older Intel-based Macs.
This is a wonderful inclusion for Prime Video customers who like to watch videos on their Apple laptops or desktop. It removes the browser restriction and allows macOS features such as PiP support to be used. The Mac App Store now offers a free download of the native Prime Video app.
