Setting up user profiles on Amazon Prime Video gives you the advantage of customizing your streaming activities based on each user’s preferences. For instance, a Kids profile has more animation movies while the other user loves to binge-watch TV series.
User profiles will have different recommendations and their own Watchlist, so you would not end up searching for all the titles you want or not seeing anything you like on the screen.
Amazon Prime Video lets you create up to six profiles for each streaming account. That means you can add five more user profiles to your existing main profile. You can even set up Kid’s profiles for the young ones in the family.
Unfortunately, some users complain that they do not see their profiles when they want to change or switch to it and stream their content on a smart TV. The Amazon Prime Video profiles are not working or not appearing on the screen switcher. Users cannot switch to their own space and navigate to their streaming activities.
