It looks like Amazon Prime Video will now have a dedicated macOS app. The company has just announced that users on macOS will now be able to stream and download content from Prime Video. Amazon has also said that only users on Big Sur 11.4 and above will be able to access the app. The Prime Video app will be available for download on the Mac App store from November 15 onward.

As awesome as it sounds, Prime Video will only be streaming in 1080p, which is a bit of a bummer as we’d expect 4K streaming to be the standard these days. Amazon has stated that support for 4K content will be coming soon. Users will also receive automatic macOS app updates. The app supports several accessibility features currently available on Prime Video, including audio descriptions and VoiceOver support. The Prime Video macOS app offers content in 9 local languages, including Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Gujarati, Punjabi and Bengali, in addition to global content, and use three local user interfaces – Hindi, Telugu and Tamil, besides English.
