Redmi K20 and K20 Pro now support Amazon Prime Video in HD
Earlier this year in July Xiaomi launched the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro in India. Over the last couple of months, both the devices have received several updates, including MIUI 11 based on Android 10. However, there was one feature that was missing in all of these updates — HD video playback in Amazon Prime Video. Xiaomi has finally addressed this issue and you can now play HD videos in Prime Video on your Redmi K20 and K20 Pro.
As reported by PiunikaWeb, the missing HD video playback was first noticed back in September and the company later promised that it would bring the feature to the device sometime down the line. It seems like Xiaomi is living up to its promise as a recent post on the Mi Community forums suggests that the HD video support is now live. If you’re a Redmi K20/K20 Pro user, you’ll need to update the Amazon Prime Video app on your device to gain the new functionality. The post states that you’ll also need to configure the content streaming settings to the highest quality.
It’s worth noting that the HD video playback support is still not available for devices that have an unlocked bootloader. I tested the support on my Redmi K20 Pro and I wasn’t able to stream HD videos as I’ve unlocked its bootloader. However, unlike Netflix, Amazon does allow users with an unlocked bootloader to download the app. The Netflix app, on the other hand, doesn’t even show up on the Play Store and I wasn’t able to sideload it either.
