Wow, I can’t believe it’s taken this long to finally get Prime instant videos on Android devices. It’s a good start, but personally I’d rather have seen a dedicated video app just for Prime instead an add-on to the shopping app. Anyway, yes it’s nice now to be able to access my Amazon Prime Instant Videos on my Android devices, but I have to wonder what too so long. Oh and as a bonus I guess, you can get 5gb of photo storage as well on Amazon Cloud Drive.
Amazon today announced that Prime members in the US, UK and Germany can now enjoy Prime Instant Video on their Android phones.
