Over the years, Amazon has become the most preferred streaming service after Netflix. Amazon Prime offers a decent catalog of entertaining shows and movies. Apart from adding quality content, Amazon Prime has also added impressive features to its web player and other apps across different platforms like Apple’s iPhone, iPad, Android, Roku, Hulu, Apple TV, Fire TVs, etc.
In this article, we will mention some tips and tricks to make the most out of your Amazon Prime subscription:
Amazon offers a video download feature for iOS and Android users. Amazon Prime was the first one who launched the offline streaming option back in 2015. This feature enables you to watch your favorite shows and movies after downloading it. This feature is excellent for travelers and for people who have restricted network connections. To download videos, install the Amazon app, and sign in with your username and password. Hit the download button next to save for later options.
Personalized Watchlist Display
To create your personalized display, you can build a home screen carousel for your movies and shows. Search the Watch Next carousel on your Prime home screen and click a small button above the carousel. This feature will enable you to delete individual titles from the carousel, and you will be left with the ones you want to watch.
Your Full Watchlist
With such an extensive catalog, there are a lot of shows you want to binge on. You can add those shows to your Prime Watchlist. Click on the small +sign in the bottom right corner of the image on the home screen. By doing so, your shows will be added to your Watchlist, and you can find it by going into the menu option on the top of the screen.
Amazon’s search bar is not very much useful as it consumes a lot of time while looking for content. To improve your search experience with Amazon, search for your Amazon Prime content somewhere else and then put the show’s name directly into the Prime search bar.
Almost all streaming services offer an auto-play option that eats up all of your free time. To turn off the auto-play option in Amazon Prime, go to “Accounts & Settings” and then go to the “Playback” tab.
Details of Your Shows
One of the coolest features of Amazon is that it pulls out the information about the shows or movies you are watching and overlays it onto the screen. You can access that information by pausing the video. This feature is also known as X-Ray. You can also expand the X-Ray and learn trivia and access information on the show’s cast and characters.
One of the most fantastic features of Amazon is its Amazon Channel, which turns your Amazon Prime into a centralized hub for all your online streaming services. You can access other streaming services like HBO, Star, Showtime, and some services, even enabling you to watch live channels.
Amazon Prime offers unlimited streaming of your favorite web series, movies, and T.V episodes. As mentioned above, these tips and tricks can surely enhance your viewing experience with Amazon.
