HOURHave you ever looked at something Amazon Prime Video and wanted to share an excerpt from the show with your friends? Good, Amazon now we have created a function that will allow users to do just that.
These clips can then be shared on social media or via direct message, but for now this feature is only available to iOS users and Amazon users in the US.
What shows can I share clips from?
At the moment there are only a limited number of shows that will allow you to share from clips, including the first season of the series’Boys‘,’Wilds‘,’Invincible‘and’Fairfax‘.
When watching one of these four shows, you’ll need to hit the new Share Clip button and you’ll be taken to a screen where you can create a 30-second clip.
Before sharing it with others, you will have the opportunity to preview the recorded clip, and when you are ready, you can click the Share button and either download it or share it via Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, iMessage, WhatsApp or Messenger.
Amazon plans with clip sharing functionality
Amazon hopes users will be able to share clips from more of their original movies and TV series in the future, so for now this can only be done with official Amazon films and serials.
Currently similar Netflix, Disney + and Hulu prevent users from taking screenshots or recording content, so Amazon in this respect, they go the other way.
It is believed that Amazonthe goal is to get this content from Prime Video to share with friends and family, as well as get them interested in watching a movie or showing themselves, which can lead to an increase in the number of subscribers.
