Amazon on Thursday announced an update to the Prime Video streaming app on iOS. Users will now be able to share short clips of Amazon Prime Video content on social networks, which is almost not possible on any paid streaming service.
As noted before the edgeThe new video sharing feature will first be available to iOS users, who will now find a Share Clip button when watching a movie or TV show.
With just one click, Amazon Prime Video will create a short 30-second clip of that moment you’re watching – and the user can edit that clip manually. Once the clip is ready, it can be shared via iMessage, Twitter, or any other social network.
Unfortunately, the sharing option will only be available for specific content, but nevertheless, this is a huge improvement over not being able to even share screenshots of what you’re watching. Most of the streaming apps use DRM protection which makes the screen black when taking a screenshot or recording the screen.
According to Amazon, the clip-sharing option can already be found when watching The Wilds, Invincible, Fairfax, and episodes of Season 1 of The Boys. The company promises to enable clip sharing for more movies and TV shows in the future.
