The ability to watch Amazon Prime Instant Videos has long been available on Amazon’s own mobile hardware (i.e. Kindle Fire tablets). Even Apple’s iPhones and iPads have supported the functionality for years via an app.
Today, however, Android devices are finally getting some loving with an updated Amazon app. Customers simply need to search for the movie or TV show that they wish to watch using the Amazon app to access the full streaming library.
In addition, the new Amazon app provides 5GB of free photo storage via Amazon Cloud Drive.
Interestingly enough, the release of the updated Amazon app for Android smartphones comes just a day after Amazon unexpectedly slashed the price on its own smartphone offering, the Fire Phone, due to poor sales. The Fire Phone was previously available for $199 on contract (32GB model), but as of yesterday is available for 99 cents on contract.
