Hi, I know amazon app can support uhd hdr but for some reason I cannot find uhd category on my app and the only way for me to view such shows is to add them to my list using my Samsung tv app. Very strange. Have anyone seen this?

The initial version of the app with its current UI was capable of streaming 4K HDR video (as can be seen in photos in this post); that version was apparently some kind of beta test, since only a subset of people got it. When it went into wide distribution the capability was removed. Though you can see the UHD badge on any items that you've put in your Watchlist or which you've watched recently (in the Watch Next row of Home) you will never receive UHD video when you play them. You also cannot browse them; there are no UHD rows in the UI.

I have no idea why they removed the capability; maybe it will come back some day.

It's bizarre, I had the version of the app which supported 4K back in December, and 4K was working without issue. Here we are, 5 months later, and there's no 4K, with an "updated" version of the app removing the higher resolution support. Not cool on Amazon's part to have such a long delay to reintroduce this feature.
