Especially popular among Prime members should be a feature of the paid subscription. Amazon Prime Video gives them an extensive range of films and series, some of which were produced exclusively for the service. Now, however, a special user group has access to a very special feature of the streaming service. It’s new and not found on the competition.

Prime Video gift: Amazon is rolling out a unique feature for members

What’s new? The company has rolled out another, and so far seemingly unique, feature intended solely for subscribers. It affects the Amazon Prime Video offering and is currently in place for first iPhone users to disposal.

So if you have an Apple device instead of an Android phone, you can soon look forward to additional functionality from Amazon Prime Video. As Amazon reported on November 11th, it should be possible to share Prime Video content with your own contacts in the form of video clips. This should work on the following platforms:

  • Instagram
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • iMessage
  • Facebook messenger
  • Whatsapp

The only catch is the version. Because the new function is currently only available for iOS, and for the time being only in the USA. In general, the length of the Amazon Prime Video content that can be shared is limited to a maximum of 30 seconds. The feature is hidden in the X-Ray technology and is currently only applicable to a minimal streaming offer within the Amazon Prime membership.

In the future, the function should be available in significantly more, but only original content from Amazon. This is probably necessary for legal reasons.

Amazon Prime members as advertisers

Of course, the Amazon Prime Video feature is not altruistic. By sharing clips, users also do some free advertising for the company and, in the best case, ensure additional Amazon Prime memberships.

by the way: If you have one, you can pick up several products for free as an Amazon Prime member.

What is the difference between Amazon Prime and Amazon Prime Video?

The Amazon Prime Video service is automatically included in every Prime subscription. So you don’t pay anything extra to be able to watch films, series and other content on it. As a customer, you can watch all of them marked “Prime” for free.

However, content is also available on Amazon Prime Video that requires additional rental fees or has a purchase price. However, these are shown accordingly, so that you do not accidentally pay money.
