It’s not so much American Gods if the Amazon Prime Video app itself is not available in the US.
Kinda ironic isn’t it?
But here’s the thing …
The app was available together with Amazon’s Shopping app in Google’s Play Store at one point of time but you and I both know very well that Google being Google doesn’t want others like Amazon’s App Store from destroying their monopoly on its Play Store. (which in a way makes sense too since an App Store within an App Store though it’s very inception-like, it can be out of Google’s reach to control and regulate the quality of apps in the App Store).
So, what did Google do?
You guessed it right.
Ever since then Amazonians, we had to go rogue to watch our favorite Amazon Prime Video shows on our Android phones.
I’ll show you how to watch Amazon Prime Video on Android too in just 5 minutes. 🙂
How to Watch Amazon Prime Video on Android: 5 Steps
1. Enabling “Unknown Sources” (It’s not really unknown…)
Step 1: Head over to your Settings and then tap on either Security (on Pixel) or Lock screen and security (on Samsung).
Step 2: Next, all you have to do is look for Unknown sources and then right next to it either you tick the box or toggle the switch next to it to turn it on.
2. Time to Install Amazon Underground.
Step 1: Head over to Amazon’s official website in your phone’s browser.
Step 2: Now tap on Get Amazon Underground.
Step 3: Next you will see a message saying “This type of file can harm your device.. blah blah”. Don’t worry about that, it won’t harm your device. Just tap on OK.
Step 4: Once Amazon_App.apk has been installed, all you have to do is just tap on Open.
Step 5: Alright. Now that you have downloaded the app it’s time to install it. So tap on Install.
Step 6: … give the app a few minutes to install …
Step 7: Done? Great! Once you see that the app is installed just tap on Open.
You’re almost done! 🙂
3. Now sign in into your Amazon account
Step 1: Once the app opens, Go ahead and sign in into your Amazon Prime or Amazon Prime Video account. (it works both ways).
4. Install Your Amazon Prime Video
Step 1: Signed in yet? Sweet. Now Amazon Prime Video will automatically start to install on your phone. All you have to do is just tap on Install and then Open to finish. 🙂
5. Amazon and Chill.
Just to be safe from any other shit happening, do make sure that you disable Unknown sources in your Settings (you can follow back 1).
Share this guide with your Amazonians, because it’s fun when everyone comes around and watches together. 🙂
