Amazon Prime Video has launched its Prime Video website and the app in a Hindi interface. This includes search, navigation, browsing and customer support in Hindi. While Prime's original and Bollywood films will be available with Hindi show descriptions and show-titles, Hollywood films would have either Hindi dubbing or Devanagari subtitles. However, it is unclear if the regional content streamed on the platform will be available in Hindi.
