Beating Netflix to the punch, Amazon now has a native Mac app for Prime Video. The app is being rolled out now and will let users watch all their favorite Prime Video content from the comfort of a Mac.

So what kind of features does this new Mac app from Amazon have to offer? There’s nothing really new here, and it borrows a lot of the stuff you can do on the mobile app. Features include downloading content for offline viewing, multiple user profiles, picture-in-picture viewing, and other things like renting or purchasing content.

All of the features found in the Prime Video app for mobile devices are all essentially ported over to the macOS app. One thing that’s worth noting is that users will have access to live sports like Thursday Night Football and soccer matches from the English Premier League.

While a Prime Video app for Mac isn’t the biggest of news, the ability to utilize picture-in-picture viewing while I’m working could definitely come in handy.
