One of the biggest reasons why someone would consider subscribing to Amazon Video over Netflix is that the former allows subscribers to download content for offline viewing. Even though Netflix hasn’t completely ruled it out the company is yet to offer this feature. Amazon Video has made it even easier for Android users to enjoy their favorite TV shows and movies on the go. They can now download content from the online streaming service on SD cards which they can easily swap in their devices.

The ability to view content offline comes in handy when users are without an internet connection. It enables them to keep watching even when they’re not connected to the internet.

Amazon has now released an update to the app for its video service, it now allows Android users to download TV shows, movies, and other content from the online service to their microSD cards.

The company previously allowed users to only save content on the internal storage of their device. This could prove to be an issue for people who had Android devices that do offer microSD card support, and since media content can easily take up the entire storage, they would have been really pressed for choice when it came to saving content for offline viewing.

Unfortunately, iPhone users can’t take advantage of this feature because Apple’s smartphones have never come with support for microSD cards.
