Amazon Prime Instant Video has finally arrived in Google Play, allowing those without Kindle Fire tablets to enjoy on-demand movies and TV shows on their Android-powered smartphones and tablets. The service is available to Prime customers in the U.S., the U.K., and other countries.

To access Prime Instant Video on Android, you’ll need the regular Amazon app, plus a new Prime Instant Video Player that’s only available to download from the Amazon Appstore. Once both of these things are installed, an “Amazon Instant Video” link will be available within the Amazon app’s navigation menu.

Just like on iOS and Kindle Fire, Prime Instant Video on Android provides access to hundreds of movies and TV shows that are all available for streaming anytime, anywhere — providing you have a Prime subscription. Users can also make purchases from Amazon’s digital catalog, so if you just can’t wait for that new movie to hit Prime, you can buy it instead.

What’s more, Amazon is also giving customers 5GB of Cloud Drive storage for backing up their photos.

You can download the latest Amazon app from Google Play now by following the link below. Don’t forget you’ll also need the Amazon Appstore app.
