Amazon has announced a new 30-second video clip-sharing feature in the Prime Video app. It is currently available for a limited number of iOS users in the United States. It will allow users to share their favorite moments from TV shows with friends and basically anyone on the internet.
The Prime Video app for iPhone and iPad will now show a new Share a clip option alongside media playback controls while watching a show. Tapping on the option will automatically generate a 30-second video clip depending on what part you were watching at the moment. A user can also move the portion forward and backward to fine-tune the selection.
There is a Preview button that will let you preview the video clip before you decide to share it. Once you are satisfied with the clip, tap the Share button to proceed ahead. The clip can be shared using all the major platforms like iMessage, WhatsApp, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
In the blog post, Amazon said:
"Have you ever been so moved by a scene, so blown away by an action sequence, or laughed so hard at a joke that you couldn’t wait to share it with someone? Now you can send scenes from your favorite Amazon Original series—straight from your phone."
It should be noted that the Prime Video clip sharing feature is currently available only for The Boys (Season One), The Wilds, Invincible, and Fairfax. Amazon says it will be expanded to more Original shows available on the platform in the future. There are no words on the Android availability of the feature yet.
