    Default AirPlay Support Added to Amazon Instant Video iOS App Along with Several Other Features


    Amazon recently updated its Instant Video application for Apple’s iOS platform with a number of new features, including support for the AirPlay standard for wireless streaming to an Apple TV set-top box. The official Amazon Instant Video app now allows customers who buy video content from the online retailer to view movies and television episodes. It also enables Amazon customer’s access to more than 150,000 videos available for rent or purchase. In addition, more than 40,000 titles are available to Amazon Prime subscribers at no additional cost.


    Version 2.1 of Amazon Instant Video adds the ability to AirPlay stream content to Apple TV. The other features in the update include the following:


    • IMDB cast and director information, ratings, goofs, trivia and quotes
    • Read customer reviews
    • Find other videos featuring cast or director
    • Customers who watched this also watched…
    • Concurrent downloads
    • Improved offline experience
    • Faster and more responsive interface
    • Bug fixes and stability improvements


    With Amazon Instant Video, purchased or rented videos can be downloaded for offline viewing. Content is also synced through Amazon’s Whispersync feature, allowing users to pick up where they left off on another device. For those of you who are unaware, Amazon Instant video first debuted on Apple’s iPad in August of 2012, when Prime subscribers had access to just 20,000 titles (half of what is available today). Support for the iPhone and iPod Touch were eventually introduced last December. The app continues to grow in terms of features and functionality as times goes on.

    Exactly. I never understood why Airplay wasn't implemented a long time ago. The only thing I could think of is Apple, for some reason, wouldn't allow it.
