Amazon Video adds 3D Touch support, Amazon X-Ray, and picture-in-picture

Amazon has updated its Video app, adding support for a number of features in iOS 9, along with support for 3D Touch on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. The app is also now ready for the iPad Pro.

The major additions with this release include Amazon's X-Ray, auto-play for TV shows, and Picture-in-Picture support on supported iPads. Check the list below for all of the changes.

  • With X-Ray you're one tap away from IMDB information on actors, songs, and trivia as you watch videos.
  • Can't wait to watch the next episode of your favorite TV show? With Next Up, when the current episode you're watching ends, the next episode automatically plays.
  • 3D touch quick actions let you access your favorite features faster and in fewer steps (only available on iPhone 6s and 6s Plus)
  • Multitask while you watch videos with Picture in Picture and Slide Over (on supported devices)
  • This version of the app adds support for iPad Pro

You can grab Amazon Video from the App Store now.

  • Hopefully Apple TV coming soon.
  • Works great as a live 2nd screen of X-Ray info if you're streaming via AirPlay to the new AppleTV. Continuously updates, shows what scene you're currently watching, who's in it, etc and from there you touch actors pics for more info. Very nice :-)
