Amazon has confirmed that it has started rolling out a native Prime Video app for macOS app. Users will be able to download and install the same via Apple’s Mac App Store for free. The app will allow Prime Video users to stream and even download Prime Video content on Apple’s Mac devices for offline viewing.
Amazon says that all of Prime Video’s content will be available in the Mac app. Users will also be able to choose their preferred video quality both for regular streaming and downloads.
The app will come with support for native macOS features like picture-in-picture and AirPlay. The Prime Video app for macOS will also grant users the ability to start content on one device and pick up where they left off on another device. The app is free and works on macOS Big Sur (11.4) and later.
In addition to the regular free-with-Prime-subscription selection, the app also features a dedicated store tab where users will be able to rent or purchase content. Amazon has confirmed that its lineup of live sports will include Thursday Night Football and the English Premiere League (where available).
The Prime Video app will make use of stored payment info when making in-app transactions. Some other options in the app include autoplay and subtitle preferences, parental controls, and the option to view other devices that have been registered to your Prime account.
