The Xbox One S is a pretty nifty upgrade to the original Xbox One console, offering features such as 4K video play back and UHD gaming it was deemed enough at the time of launch to lure a lot of gamers away from their original Xbox One console.
Microsoft has announced recently that the 4k video playback capabilities of the Xbox One S have now been extended to the Amazon Video app as well. This feature is only available on the Xbox One S due to the original Xbox One not supporting 4K.
While the Amazon app itself now supports 4k that doesn’t necessarily mean that every show supports 4k. Among those that do support 4K are Amazon-produced shows like The Man in the High Castle, Sneaky Pete, and Top Gear successor The Grand Tour.
Amazon’s Xbox One app joins video streaming rivals Netflix and Hulu (if you live in the appropriate country), both of which already offer 4K playback support on Xbox One S. If you have the Amazon video app already downloaded it should update automatically, either as a background download or the next time you try to launch the app.
Are you glad to see the continued support for 4K video playback on the Xbox One S? Will you be watching any of these shows now that they’re available in 4K, or perhaps you’ll re-watch them to see if there’s a noticeable difference in quality? Let us know in the comments below!
