Mumbai: Amazon Prime Video has announced the rollout of a native macOS app. The app will allow customers to stream and download Prime Video content on Macs for offline viewing. Mac users worldwide with Big Sur 11.4 and above can download the app for free from the Mac App Store starting 15 November, said the platform in a statement.

The macOS app has been designed to deliver a streaming experience that is similar to the Prime Video website, but with slightly different capabilities that offer even more convenience to users. For example, the app will offer streaming over AirPlay, using Picture-In-Picture and the option to download movies and series for offline viewing (when available). Customers using the macOS app will also be able to use the search/browse functionality, as well as, fan-favourite features like IMDb’s X-ray, continue watching, watchlist, etc.

Prime Video macOS app has the same content and language (20+ languages) offerings as the Prime Video iOS app and currently supports streaming in 1080p, with 4k support coming soon. It will be available in all the countries where Prime Video is available. Users will also receive automatic macOS app updates. The app supports several accessibility features currently available on Prime Video, including audio descriptions and VoiceOver support, said the statement.

Prime Video macOS app users in India will be able to enjoy content in nine local languages, including Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Gujarati, Punjabi and Bengali, in addition to global content, and use three local user interfaces – Hindi, Telugu and Tamil, besides English.
