Prime Video not updating the last watched episode.

This started with the lastest app update. I'm currently watching a couple shows, and since this last redesign, after an episode is finished and goes back to the title screen, it is offering me to play next the same episode I just watched. I exited the app and logged in again, but it's still offering the play next the same episode.

 

Please, fix this since it is very annoying.

Re: Prime Video not updating the last watched episode.

The app is created and maintained by Amazon.  Roku just supplies the platform to run it on.  You need to address your concerns to Amazon.

I can't help but just so you know,..

I'm having issues with that same channel- I have to LOG IN each time I view or I can't see my watch list on Amazon Prime. All else seem fine with Prime but my login,.. sounds like they are having s/w issues.

Re: Prime Video not updating the last watched episode.

I am able to easily reproduce this issue on my Apple TV 4K using the latest Amazon Prime Video app (version 1.1.6). I have called Amazon Support several times and reported this issue. Since that time I have factory reset my Apple TV as well as deleted/reinstalled/reregistered their app several times. No workaround other than going to another device (or Amazon's website) and skimming through the episode (or movie) to completion. I feel your pain. Very frustrating!

Re: Prime Video not updating the last watched episode.

Same problem.  Unless I stop watching before the time runs out the bar showing how much of the episode is watched is empty.  I have to go to episodes and find the next one or I restart a previously watched episode.  Very irritating.

Re: Prime Video not updating the last watched episode.

Exactly @ogaebe, the app properly updates the episode's watch history to the very end then it resets the history as if it had never been watched. Thus if I stop playing seconds prior to the end all is good. The watch history is preserved. Super frustrating to say the least!
