Amazon announced that Amazon Cloud Drive users can now access their personal photos and videos through the Amazon Instant Video App on PS3, PS4, and select LG and Samsung smart TVs in the U.S., U.K., and Germany.

"The Amazon Instant Video app is the latest place where customers can view and enjoy personal photos and videos stored on Amazon Cloud Drive, adding to the already extensive library of movies and TV shows for purchase, as well as thousands of movies and TV shows for Prime members with Prime Instant Video," the company said. "Amazon Cloud Drive is already accessible on the web, iOS and Android devices, Fire TV, Fire phone and Fire tablets."

"We know our customers move from device to device throughout the day and crave choice in how they view entertainment and personal content,” added Michael Paull, VP of Digital Video for Amazon. “We expanded the Amazon Instant Video app to include Amazon Cloud Drive to make it easy for our customers to access their personal memories right alongside their favorite movies and TV shows in Prime Instant Video. We are excited to have Cloud Drive integrated with the Amazon Instant Video app on PlayStation, LG and Samsung, and are looking forward to delivering this feature to even more devices in the future.”

Now if Amazon could just add Chromecast support...

At least it did add Prime Instant Video for Android by way of the Amazon Appstore.

Amazon Cloud Drive users can use the Amazon Instant Video app to navigate to the photos area within the app to connect with Cloud Drive.
