can you use Amazon prime/instant video on a yoga?

Been thinking about signing up but need to know if it works on the yoga browser or chrome?

 

If I can only get it working my pc then its probably not worth it

Amazon Prime does not work on the Chrome browser for Android.  The stock Android browser might work with Flash installed, but Lenovo removed the stock browser from Yoga with the update to KitKat.  There's a trick to get it working using Dolphin browser:

It sounds like that trick will not work for amazon.co.uk, so it might not be of use to you.

Yes you can but you need to fool Amazon into thinking the Yoga is an Android phone. You do this by side loading the Amazon phone app apk. You cant download from the Play store because it will only put the tablet app on. Its very easy to do takes just a couple of minutes and it works a treat all your Prime videos will just stream to the tablet without a problem. Here is a link for how to do it, happy viewing.

I just found this, and am glad I did. Just purchased the Yoga 2 8in and was worried that I wouldn't be able to stream Amazon prime and have my Google stuff. Getting harder to find units that do both these days. No one wants to play with each other anymore.

I must have spent hours looking for a tablet that was fair priced and had decent specs with 2gig RAM AND was able to play Amazon and Google.

Well keep this page bookmarked and will refer to it when I get my new tab.
