With the strong bet that Amazon has made in the last two years around its video platform, it seemed impossible to imagine that one of the easiest options of a video subscription in-stream not available.
Although if we look at others, apps they do not have it either, as is the case with HBO or DAZN, which seem more focused on content than on content. Usability of his apps officers.
The point is that, as published on the XDA Developers forum, Amazon is already putting into circulation an update of its application that will allow us to create different profiles for each user who enters to see series and movies in their catalogue. Something that until now was impossible and that caused, as you surely know, many problems.
Only in certain countries
This novelty at the moment it has not reached all the countries where the platform is present although it is to be expected that the updates as the days go by. In this new version, Prime Video already allows you to create profiles to separate each family member who accesses the platform, which will avoid those inconveniences of two people colliding when they watch the same series and their progress is not saved separately.
This, as you can imagine if there are many of you at home, It is a huge inconvenience that forces us to tell ourselves what each one is seeing Or, as many users do, they get into the habit of organizing weekend marathons so as not to tread on the progress of another of those who use the same subscription.
Be that as it may, and as you can see from the screens that you have just above, the app will notify us when it is possible to create those profiles and, thus, it will be possible to start building one per person. In the options of each one (screen on the right) you can define whether that account is for a child, under 12 years old, or to use the general catalogue.
Total, Prime Video will allow us to have a maximum of six active profiles on the platform, which is not bad since it surpasses, for one, Netflix itself. Remember that in recent times others apps of this type have also added these profiles, like Movistar +. However, we will be waiting for other companies like HBO, or DAZN, to follow this path of separating the history of views and preferences of each user.
