Amazon Prime Video rolls out user profiles & Windows 10 app

08 Jul 2020 | Rasmus Larsen |

Amazon Prime Video has finally added support for user profiles. The streaming service now also has a Windows 10 app.

Amazon user profiles

Like Netflix, HBO Max and others, Amazon Prime Video now supports user profiles for family members and friends who share an account. Up to six profiles can be created under a single account, including Kids profiles. - "Prime Video allows you to create and manage multiple profiles within your account with content personalized separately to each profile. Each profile will have separate recommendations, season progress and watchlist based on individual profile activity," said Amazon. "You can have up to six user profiles (1 default primary profile + 5 additional profiles either adult or kids) within Prime Video on a single Amazon account."

Users with different profiles under the same account can stream up to three videos simultaneously, or two simultaneous streams of the same video. Payment information from the main account can be shared with other members and various restrictions can be set for Kids profiles. The company said that users can create and access user profiles from the web browser or from within the app on Android, iOS, Fire tables, FireTV, and some living room devices such as PlayStation 4. The feature is rolling out globally but it will take some time for it to reach everyone, the company noted. Amazon has also launched a dedicated app for Windows 10 that can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store. The app features offline viewing (unlike the browser version), rent/buy options, Prime Video channels, and IMDb integration.
