Amazon launches Prime video service based on UWP app to Windows 10 users

Amazon’s streaming video service, Prime Video, has been appearing on most of the biggest platforms, including Chromecast and Android TV, but has been slow to appear on Windows 10 because it still doesn’t have a native app,media reported. Although the Xbox One has been available for use since November 2017, the only way to use the service on Windows 10 is through a web browser.

Now, that could soon change, as Aggiornamenti Lumia discovered a new universal Windows platform (UWP) version of Prime Video in Microsoft’s App Marketplace, which appears as a preview. The app has reportedly been in development for several months and will be released on Microsoft’s desktop platform, which will be the first time the service’s native client will appear on Microsoft’s desktop platform.

Aggiornamenti Lumia has downloaded the preview and posted some screenshots of the app. Amazon has invested heavily in developing the app over the past three months and will be released in the near future, the site said. As for the app itself, it seems to be the same as the features on the web, but it also includes sections such as “Download” for offline viewing.
