#1. Using an Android phone or tablet

  • Tap on the Download button and choose the Download Quality from options such as Best, Better, Good or Data Saver.
  • You can also check the Make this my default setting after choosing the option so that the same option can be selected the next time you are downloading a movie.

Can I download movies from Amazon Prime to my computer?

No, as we mentioned earlier, you can’t download movies from Amazon Prime to your computer’s local storage.

Instead, you can download them on your Amazon Prime app on PC or Android device for offline viewing.

Also, screen recording is illegal on Amazon Prime as per Amazon’s terms so it is better not to try that as well.

Amazon also says that they don’t recommend you to download movies from Amazon Prime onto a flash drive such as an pendrive etc.

Also, the downloaded movies from Amazon Prime are stored on the following path of your Android device but you can’t play them as a standalone file and you need Amazon Prime app as we have already tried the same 🙂

  • internal storage/android/data/com.amazon.avod.thirdpartyclient
  • /data/data/com.amazon.avod.thirdpartyclient

Basically, all you can do in order to download movies from Amazon Prime is to have them downloaded in the app only.

You can watch the content downloaded inside the app offline as well but you can’t extract that content out of the app and it is against Amazon’s rules to do so as well.

Conclusion

As we mentioned earlier, it is quite possible to download movies from Amazon Prime to your device in 2022 but only via the Amazon Prime app and not on your local storage.

Also, you need to have both the Amazon Prime app and an active Amazon Prime subscription to download movies and shows for offline viewing.

Without a subscription, you can watch free content on your device via the app but downloading the content is not possible.
