However, the most striking option of the Amazon Prime Video app for PC, putting both Windows and Mac in this bag, is the one that allows download content to enjoy offline, just like in the Amazon Prime Video mobile app.

The Amazon Prime Video app for Mac released its version 1.0 last week and this has received its first update with corrections, so it is a good time to give it a try, if you haven’t already done so and prefer the experience of using one. independent application to the web browser.
