Trending: Amazon Go is finally a go: Sensor-infused store opens to the public Monday, with no checkout lines

amazoninstantAs app developers everywhere rush to update their code in advance of tomorrow’s iOS 7 launch, Amazon has added two new features for users of its Instant Video streaming app.

According to Amazon’s release notes, it’s now possible for Instant Video users to use AirPlay streaming to stream content from one Apple device to another, including the Apple TV, which does not support Amazon’s Instant Video product. In addition, the Instant Video app now integrates reviews and information from IMDB on top of all the information that Amazon already has.

Given the hostility of the current competitive environment between Apple and Amazon, streaming via AirPlay may be Amazon’s only way to make it on to Apple’s set-top box, where it will now be competing with Netflix, Hulu and Apple for viewer dollars.
