Amazon Prime Video adds clips sharing feature for TV shows and movies

San Francisco: Amazon has announced a new feature for its Amazon Prime Video users which allow them to share video clips from TV shows and movies they are watching on the platform. The users can share the video clip on social media platforms as well through direct message.

However, this new feature in the Prime Video will be limited only to the iOS users in the US. We expect that the feature will be rolled out for Android devices soon and in other countries across the globe.

The company said that the clips can be shared on social media (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter) or via direct message (Apple’s iMessage).

“While watching an episode in the Prime Video app on your iOS mobile device, hit the ‘Share a clip’ button. This will pause the show and open a clip, edit and share screen,” the company said in a blogpost.

“Prime Video will generate a 30-second clip of what you just watched, and you will be able to move the clip forward or backward to fine-tune. You will also be able to preview it before sharing,” it added.

Once you are ready to share a clip, tap the “Share” icon on the screen, and you can upload it via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, iMessage, Messenger and WhatsApp.

For the initial rollout, users can only share clips from a limited number of shows.

This feature will be initially available for ‘The Boys’ (Season One), ‘The Wilds’, ‘Invincible’ and ‘Fairfax’, with more Amazon Original movies and series to follow.

Amazon’s decision to allow users to share its content marks a change from other streaming services like Netflix and Disney+ which do not currently allow users to upload video clips from their series or movies.

Currently, in India Amazon Prime Video has announced a change in subscription plans in the near future. The subscription will cost Rs 1499 for a year. The three month plan will cost Rs 459 and the monthly plan will cost Rs 179. Currently the plans costs Rs 999 (yearly), Rs 459 (three months) and Rs 129 (monthly).
