Amazon gives several free games every month via Twitch Prime, included with Amazon Prime. You can play them through the Twitch app, but the Amazon Games launcher is a much better experience. Here’s how to download and install it.
Download the Amazon Games app here
Do you just want to download the software? Click this link to download the Amazon Games app directly from the Amazon website.
The Amazon Games app is much better than the old Twitch app from Amazon for downloading and playing these free games. It includes several basic features not found in the Twitch app, such as a search box to quickly find the games you want to play.
Finding this link shouldn’t be complicated, but it is. Amazon doesn’t have a main download page where you’ll find a download link for the launcher. Read on and we’ll show you where Amazon hides the link on its website.
How to find the download link on the Amazon website
To download the launcher, go to Twitch Prime’s games and loot page. Twitch Prime is included with Amazon Prime for free, so you need to sign in first.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and find the “Bonus Games” section. Claim the games you want to play this month by clicking “Claim”.
After claiming a game, you’ll see a “Download and play” link below it. Click on this link.
Now you will see a link “Download the Amazon Games app (Windows)”. Click on it to download the installer. Run the installer to install the Amazon Games launcher for Twitch Prime games.
Once the Amazon Games app is installed, you can sign in to download and play all the games you’ve ever claimed from Twitch Prime. You can also claim your free games from this app without using the website.
