Amazon officially introduces Family Vault and Prime Prints - photo sharing and printing
Despite Prime being around for a number of years at this point, Amazon has been relentless recently in regards to adding new features to their subscription service that seems to get more and more awesome with every day that goes by. Earlier this month, Amazon took the wraps off of Prime Reading - a new feature to Amazon Prime that would allow subscribers to have access to free books, magazines, and even comics. In the latest update, Prime subscribers will be gaining access to a new feature by the name of Family Vault.

Although it isn't quite as exciting as Prime Reading, Family Vault is still a nice addition to have that we think a lot of people will take advantage of. With Family Vault, Prime subscribers will have the ability to share photos and videos with friends and family members of theirs that aren't already subscribers to Amazon Prime. Each Prime member will now be able to invite 5 other people to join their Family Vault, and once part of it, invitees will have access to unlimited photo storage and 5GB of cloud space for saving videos and other files. 

On top of this, the Family Vault and Prime Photos will also include a robust tool for creating photo albums, cards, individual prints, and more for the photos that you've got stored away in your Vault. The new feature goes by the name of Prime Prints, and Amazon says that these prints will start out at $0.09 each. Additionally, all printed items will be shipped to Prime members at no additional cost.

Amazon Prints is available for Prime Photos and Amazon Drive customers starting today, and the new Family Vault feature has been added to the Prime Photos app on both Android and iOS devices.
