Softonic review

Stream your favorites on your Windows 10 device

Amazon Prime Video (Windows 10 App) is the official Windows 10 program of one of your favorite video entertainment collection platforms in the world. Developed by Amazon Development Centre (London) Ltd., it allows you to watch your most loved movies and TV shows—which include the Amazon Originals series such as The Boys, Hunters, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, and more. With its offline playback feature, you are allowed to download and enjoy all these content anytime and anywhere you want.

Better than the web app

This application undeniably provides a better experience than the Prime Video web app. Frankly speaking, when you are navigating through the online platform of this app, you will feel like you are shopping online, just like how you experience its Amazon store website. Oftentimes, you’ll randomly see a Home & Garden tab in this site while you are browsing, which is extremely unrelated to what Amazon Prime Video offers.

Fortunately, with the formal release of its Windows application, you’ll have the best user experience as you browse through and search for content to watch. This time, you will really feel like you are navigating within the actual Prime Video app without any irrelevant sections popping out. Regarding its "offline playback" feature, once you’ve downloaded the movie or TV show you want to watch, it’ll only be available to stream offline for 48 hours. If you wish to keep it longer, then you have to briefly connect to the internet and download that particular content again.

This Windows version app is a blessing but the entire program itself still lacks a lot of features. For instance, it doesn’t support 4K, HDR, or Dolby 5.1 surround sound—which makes it fall behind its strong competitor, Netflix. It also doesn’t have the handy picture-in-picture mode or also knows as the Compact Overlay feature, a function that allows you to play a video app over all of your other windows—which makes viewing content a lot easier.      

Far behind other major streaming apps

It could easily be reasoned out that all of these shortcomings are because this app version is relatively new. However, considering that Amazon has long been running as a development company in the market, the Windows application of Amazon Prime Video could’ve been built up better. Nevertheless, this app is still a finer option to browse Prime Video content than its web app.
