Amazon Video is quietly rolling out a new app for Xbox One

Amazon Video customers who watch on Xbox One will have a major reason to celebrate shortly, as a major app update is on the way bringing 4K HDR content and a streamlined interface to the console.

While this app update doesn't seem to be available in the Xbox Store as of yet, users of the current app in the US should be able to find it by going to the "Ready to install" apps list in the Games & Apps section on the dashboard. We're unsure when this app will roll out to customers in other territories, but if you can find it outside of the US, let us know in the comments!

The app appears to be UWP-ready, but there is currently no sign of it on the Windows 10 Store. The new menus are far more responsive than the previous app. It can be a little slow to buffer compared to the likes of Netflix, but it does deliver rich 4K UHD HDR experiences that Prime subscribers with a Xbox One S and a compatible TV can now take advantage of.

Hopefully, we'll eventually see the app roll out more broadly soon, in addition to a version for Windows 10 devices. Are you an Amazon Video customer? Are you satisfied with the service? Let us know in the comments.

Thanks Christian Jolicoeur for the tip!
