Analyzing your Amazon Prime Watchlist history enables Amazon to yield better recommendations. That way, it can help subscribers settle with the best streaming suggestions or come up with an updated list of related content. The crucial question to ask here is should you keep a running list of the things you’ve watched? I guess, not! Here’s how you can clear the clutter.
How to remove your Amazon Prime Watchlist history entries?
The recommendation algorithms developed by Amazon review your Amazon Prime Watchlist history and, for each purchase, pull up a list of related content. This makes it computationally feasible to recommend content form a curated menu rather than suggest some from an overwhelming catalog. However, if you don’t want to be trapped in a content loop, delete your watch history.
- Login to your Prime Video account.
- Click your profile icon.
- Select Account & Settings.
- Switch to the Watch history tab.
- To delete episodes, click the Delete episodes from the Watch History link.
- Similarly, to delete movie entries, choose Delete movie from the Watch History link.
What is the Watchlist on Amazon Prime?
Keeping up with dozens of streaming titles under recommendations can be a daunting task. So, to simplify this process, Amazon allows you to create a watchlist. It helps you filter suggested recommendations, based on what sort of content you like and dislike and pick your favorite content. Once you’ve added content to the list, you can stream it by tapping the title you want to watch, and then tap the Watch Now or Resume, if you previously didn’t finish the video.
Alternatively, you can choose to download your video by tapping the Download button
