What is Amazon Prime Gaming
The first and most important thing is that you know what Amazon Prime Gaming is and how it works. And it is that, probably, as you read the following words, many of its functionalities sound familiar to you.
Formerly known as Twitch Prime, this new Twitch payment service (although we could say that it is from Amazon) it gives us access to a series of benefits by being subscribed to it. On the one hand, as far as streaming is concerned, the advantages are the following:
- Free subscription to a channel: As we said before, if you are a regular consumer of channels on the Amazon streaming platform, you will know what subscriptions are all about. Well, thanks to Prime Gaming (and as happened with Twitch Prime) you can subscribe to a channel of the platform totally free.
- Live storage: on the other hand, if you usually do live broadcasts on this platform, you will also know that these are only stored for 14 days on your wall so that those users who could not see it live have the possibility of viewing it. Well, thanks to the Amazon Prime Gaming service, you can store your live streams for 60 days on your wall so that everyone can see them.
- Exclusive content for chats– Another of the most “coveted” features of regular Twitch users is the exclusive content for subscribers. Well, thanks to having this service everyone will know that you are a Prime Gaming subscriber thanks to the extras that you can use in your chats such as emoticons, colors or a badge.
On the other hand, if you are not one of those who enjoy live content, there are also advantages associated with the Amazon Games store:
- Free games: Amazon will give us games completely free of charge on a monthly basis through its store.
- Free bonus content: Every month Amazon will give us free access to different extras, starter packs, weapons and other advantages of some of the games in their store.
As you can imagine, access to Amazon Prime Gaming is priced at 3.99 euros. However, whether you already had an active subscription to Amazon Prime, or if you just registered, the Prime Gaming service (and all its advantages) will be completely free for you.
All these advantages and the news of the Prime Gaming service can be consulted through its official website. Also, any new deployments coming to this platform in the future will be listed here first.
