Amazon Prime Video is one of the most popular video streaming apps in the world. At the moment, it is available on Google's Android mobile operating system via Play Store, on Windows via the Microsoft Store and on iOS via Apple's App Store. However, there is no such app available for macOS users. But this doesn't mean that MacBook and iMac users cannot access the Amazon Prime Video app on their PCs, it simply means that they will have to log into Prime Video's web-based interface to access the content on the video streaming platform. But that changes now as Amazon has rolled out native support for the Amazon Prime Video on Apple's macOS.
