Amazon Prime Video on Android has a button that allows you to randomly play episodes. It is useful for people who do not want the episodes played in their order and don’t wish to choose which episode they will watch next. To randomly view episodes, users can use the “Shuffle Episodes” button.
The new button is also visible, which can be found between the “Download” and “More” buttons. This is how Amazon Prime Video’s “Shuffle Episodes” button works:
