The Amazon prime instant app for Android has always been seen as a bit of an afterthought, only working on certain tablets at present. But Amazon are said to be rectifying that situation by launching a universal working version.
The news of an android app comes from PC Advisor, who say the app is imminent after speaking to Russell Morris, who is the marketing director at Amazon Instant Video.
The Amazon Prime Instant Android app will offer Prime subscribers access to unlimited streaming of a number of titles on Android smartphones and tablets, along with access to the Instant Video library which is pay-per-view .
Many presume that the app has taken so long to be released just so that Amazon could promote and sell their Kindle Fire tablet more, as it happened to have a working app.
Morris also said that 4K streaming is also coming to the Prime Instant Video service later this year, with all the Amazon Studios original content being filmed in 4K Ultra HD quality.
Morris did not specify a date for the Amazon Instant Android app, or even confirm that it will work with all android smartphones and tablets. But as Netflix have managed to make it work, one would assume Amazon can as well.
