You may have noticed earlier this month Amazon rolled out some new features to its website when you stream Prime Video. A new section was added for My Stuff that puts all of your content in a single place. Now Amazon has updated its Prime Video app on mobile devices with the new look.
Now when you are looking for your owned movies and TV shows, you will no longer find them hidden in a menu on the top left. Now Amazon has added a row at the bottom for Home, Store, Search, and My Stuff to name a few. This makes navigating through the app far faster.
One of the biggest changes is the new My Stuff section. Here you will find all of your downloads, watchlist, and all the movies and TV shows you have purchased.
You will also notice Amazon has made it easier to download full seasons of shows. In the past you would have to manually download each show. Now you also have the option to, with one click, download a full season. (Or just pick the episodes you want.)
Amazon is also making Amazon Channels a bigger part of the app. All the content has always been there but now Amazon has given it prime placement as it encourages you to use your Amazon account to subscribe to STARZ, HBO, CBS All Access and more.
This update is now live on mobile devices like Android and Fire Tablets. One thing you will notice if you have a Fire Tablet is the Amazon Prime Video app is no longer built into the OS. Now when you go to video on newer Fire Tablets you will no longer find a way to jump to your downloads. Instead, you will find a Prime Video icon in the top right corner that will bring you to a new Prime video app with access to all the features you used to find built into the OS. This is likely a short term patch as Amazon works to update the Fire OS to include the new look and feel of Prime Video.
