Amazon Prime Video’s dedicated app for Windows 10 is now live

Amazon Prime Video’s dedicated app for Windows 10 is now live in the Microsoft Store, the company announced Thursday. It allows you to stream videos and download them for offline viewing. While it’s always been possible to stream Prime Video content through a browser like Chrome, there was no way to download videos on a Windows device to view offline until now.

The Amazon Prime Video for Windows app is now live on the Windows Store, and brings with it a number of features to support your binge watching over the holiday weekend. It's as you'd expect: an app that presents the full Prime Video experience for Prime members, including access to all Prime Video Channels as well as the ability to subscribe to over 150 premium channels (including HBO, Showtime, Starz, and Cinemax) and support for X-Ray and IMDb information.

While it has always been possible to stream Prime Video content through browsers like Chrome, it was not possible to download videos on a Windows device to view offline until now. The Windows 10 app is free, but subscription to Amazon Prime Video costs Rs 129 for a month and Rs 999 for a year. If you want to Buy Amazon Prime Video Membership, I think z2u.com is your best choice, after all, the site has been officially certified,so it's very safe.
 
An initial test by The Verge found the Windows 10 app wouldn’t stream higher than HD (720p) resolution, similar to the limits on the iPad version of the app, even though it’s possible to stream at 1080p HD through a web browser. The download option has three tiers for video quality, Good, Better, and Best, with each tier using progressively more storage. But the app does not indicate the corresponding resolution to each tier. A 52-minute episode of Tales from the Loop at the Best setting took up about 2.74GB of space.

The Windows 10 app is just the latest expansion of the Amazon Prime Video platform, shortly after the service introduced co-watching, allowing Prime members to sync titles with friends in the style of Netflix Party. As per a report by Engadget, the settings menu of the Windows 10 desktop app includes three download quality presets – Good, Better and Best, with the highest quality setting taking up approximately 2.4 GB of internal storage.
