The new feature includes a Prime Video Kids profile, so you can more easily set parental controls restricting what younger family members are allowed to watch.

Amazon Prime Video supports up to six user profiles out of which one is a default profile and the rest for individuals or kids.

Amazon Prime Video is now rolling out its long-awaited profiles feature to everyone worldwide, including its biggest subscriber market: the US.


Each individual Prime Video profile will have access to separate recommendations based on their activity, and will be able track their season progress and maintain their own watchlists.

Prime profiles will be manageable on the Android and iOS versions of the Prime Video app, on the web, on 10th-generation or higher Fire tablets, the Fire TV app and other select devices, such as PlayStation 4.

Starting Tuesday, July 7, Amazon is rolling out Prime Video profiles in the US and other countries. Any adult profile will have access to all that content. Those profiles won't be able to make purchases. And they can be any mixture of kid and adult profiles you want.


Although it has always been possible to stream Prime Videos content through a browser like Chrome, it was impossible to download videos on a Windows device to view them offline up until now. The subscription fee is $8.99 equivalent to R153.51 per month and those that pay $119 which is also equivalent to R2031.45 on an annual subscription will get the Prime video for free. Profile management (create, edit or delete) is now unavailable.
