Amazon Prime Video To Introduce User Profiles Like Netflix

Netflix and Amazon Prime Video are the biggest OTT rivals in the world, especially in India. At the same time, Prime Video is famous for more regional content, while Netflix focuses more on content accepted worldwide.

Amazon Prime Video’s biggest competitor Netflix provides four profiles per user (ID), meaning that four people can use an account at the same time to enjoy the content they like.

Prime Video is also soon coming with a similar profile system to attract more users to their platform.

According to a report by XDA Developers, the feature is currently limited to certain countries and is rolling out to users gradually.

Prime Video will provide six profiles, two more than Netflix. Profiles will let users track their viewing progress, manage watch lists, and receive personalized recommendations.

Kid profiles can also be added, which may prohibit content that is deemed unsafe for children under 12. However, out of the maximum six users, there needs to be at least one adult (admin profile), while the rest can either be profiles for kids under 12 years of age or adults.

The reports state that a new profile can be created either through the Prime Video’s app or the web browser by tapping on the “My Stuff” button and then the ” ” icon in the drop-down menu.
