Amazon’s Prime Video Windows 10 app is now available

Last week, an Amazon Prime Video app was spotted on the Microsoft Store, showing off a fully-featured client built for Microsoft's operating system. At the time, the app was still unavailable, but that changes today, as the app is now available for anyone to download on the Microsoft Store (via Aggiornamenti Lumia).

The app itself is pretty much the same as what was spotted last week. The presentation is pretty much identical to the web version of Prime Video, with items listed under a number of sub-section in a carousel. The video player itself is also pretty much the same as what's on the web version, so the experience will definitely feel familiar for those used to viewing content in a browser.

A sidebar gives access to a variety of options for discovering new content, managing your own library, and even viewing downloaded files to watch offline, a solid selling point for the app if you plan on being disconnected from the internet for a while and still want to watch some shows. Functionality-wise, this is pretty much the same as the web version, just with a hint of Windows' design language and the addition of offline downloads.

If you happen to be an Amazon Prime Video user, the app can be downloaded here, and it seems to work in just about any region where Prime Video is available.
