Amazon Adds AirPlay Support To Amazon Instant Video For iOS

amazoninstantvideo

Amazon has added AirPlay support to its popular video streaming app – Amazon Instant Video. Starting today, the new feature allows iOS users to push video from their iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to the Apple TV. Not quite as good as having an Amazon Instant Video channel on the Apple TV, but the move is sure to satisfy Amazon Prime users for the time being.

The update also includes more IMDB integration with cast info, ratings, trivia and quotes. Amazon also says the updated app is faster, more responsive and now supports concurrent downloads. There’s also a new “Customers who watched this also watched…” feature to help users discover more movies and spend more time and money on Amazon. The free update is available now in the App Store.

    I hadn’t installed the app since I put iOS 7 gold master on my phone… just installed it (11 am EST) and it’s version 1.43.72.27… doesn’t AirPlay video

    Maybe it hasn’t rolled out across all servers yet

    ah, there we go… it took two tries in the App Store “Updates” area to get version 2.1 to show up… weird that a fresh install of the app didn’t give me the latest version right away
