As Netflix did after, the Amazon Prime Video app finally came to Macbooks

As a native macOS application, Summary, the Amazon Prime Prime application is available in the Mac App Store. Prime Video subscribers previously used the TV streaming service on their Macbook browsers.

Subscribers can use a separate desktop application instead, either for streaming content or download for offline use.

Amazon Prime Prime Video application for macOS has all the standard features including native Image-in-Picture support and AirPlay support. It allows for in-app payments for rents as well as on-demand content. This means that users do not need to switch to a browser to complete payments.

Other features in the app include keeping track of what users are watching and their location in a TV or movie series so you can watch it on one device and then proceed seamlessly on another – meaning the Amazon Prime Prime app will remain up to date speed. including your viewing habits elsewhere (say, on a Fire TV Stick or smart TV) and vice versa. It also supports Spatial Audio for AirPods Pro and Airpods Max.

Going through the responses to the new application, one can see that most people who have used the app feel the options for recording and streaming quality are acceptable. But there have been complaints about the user interface, which is not really surprising – or limited to the desktop application of the service.

However, the advent of a macOS desktop application for Amazon Prime Video marked a stark contrast to Netflix, which has yet to offer a desktop application on a Macbook in the same vein as mobile / tablet applications for iPhone and iPad .

Analysis: Did Netflix fall behind?

In-app viewing is a great option for those who want stationary apps for their streaming needs – meaning you won’t be lost between tabs or distracted by a browser notification. Desktop applications tend to offer high resolution streaming, in particular, than offered in streaming service browsers; Netflix’s Windows 10 app can stream in 4K resolution, if your PC monitor supports it.

So it’s a shame not to see Netflix (or Disney Plus, for that matter) offering the same on Macbooks yet.

It’s the same thing in the world of smart displays. Netflix is ​​a rare thing in that area, with its arrival on Google Nest Hub Max last year making headlines. Amazon, along with its various lines of smart Echo Show displays, has made sure its streaming service is more widespread there.

Amazon Prime Prime video for macOS is available on the Mac App Store as a free download. It is compatible with macOS Big Sur 11.4 and later. Physically, an Amazon Prime subscription requires viewing streaming content.
