As promised by Amazon in July, Amazon Prime Instant Video is now available for Android devices. The retailer rolled out an update this morning for their shopping app, and added the video service as an optional add-on.
You can find the shopping app inand in the Amazon Appstore, and according to Amazon’s changelog the video app will have to be downloaded from the Amazon Appstore.
Prime Instant Video has long been available on the iPad and iPhone, but until today anyone who wanted to use this service on Android had to jump through several hoops to get streaming video working in a web browser. But no more.
Now Amazon Prime members will no longer have to use the workaround I posted in order to access the free streaming video on their Android devices. This is (potentially) great news for Prime members in the UK and Germany; the workaround doesn’t work in those countries, but this new app might.
Can someone confirms that it works in the UK and Germany?
