  • Amazon Prime has a new interface that’s easier to navigate and simplifies the process of finding content.
  • The layout features a side navigation panel with tabs for different categories of content.
  • Amazon Prime’s new interface is rolling out to Xbox consoles, although it appears to be doing so gradually.

Amazon Prime has a new interface that aims to provide a cleaner experience for the streaming service. The improved layout includes a side panel with tabs for finding content, homepage, store, channel subscription, and live TV. There are also sections for watching free TV with ads through Amazon’s FreeVee as well as My Stuff, which includes watchlists and playlists.

“We’re redesigning the Prime Video experience to showcase our wide selection of content and make it easier for customers to find the content they love,” Amazon said.

We’ve known about the new Amazon Prime interface for weeks, but now it’s making its way to Xbox consoles and Windows devices. It seems to unfold gradually. The people from About MSFT Spotted the new interface on their systems but I don’t see it on my hardware yet. It should be noted that I’m in the UK, which often gets these types of updates later than the US.

Although Microsoft no longer advertises Xbox consoles as entertainment hubs, the devices have a large library of streaming services. All the major apps for watching movies and TV shows are supported, and many people still use their Xbox consoles to enjoy the content. The new Amazon Prime app interface should make it a bit easier to locate things to watch.
