Amazon appears to have recently added its popular "X-Ray" feature to the Amazon Prime Video app on the Apple TV.
X-Ray lets Amazon Prime Video users get more information about the TV shows and movies they're offering, with the feature providing cast and character information, trivia, bonus content, photo galleries, and more.
On Apple TV, the X-Ray feature can be used by tapping on the Apple Remote's main button and then swiping upwards after the "X-Ray" text appears on the screen.
From there, you can view information on the actors in a particular scene, jump to a different scene in a TV show or movie, see a full cast list, or read trivia facts.
On some titles, there's also a collection of bonus photos and videos to look through, with behind-the scenes information, concept art, set design, and more.
X-Ray is a feature that's available on most devices where Amazon Prime Video can be watched, but it wasn't added to the Apple TV until recently and wasn't an available option when the Amazon Prime Video app for Apple TV launched in 2017. X-Ray is also available on the Amazon Prime Video app for iOS.

Which button on the remote is the "main" button? The one labeled "menu" or the home button (or click the trackpad)?
It’s a fun feature for movie buffs. I hope they get it squared away.
1) No sound feedback when swiping, which makes it seem non-native to me and makes it less exacting.
2) The damned Watch Next row keeps disappearing and I must futz with switching screens (go into Watchlist and back) over and over until it shows up. The iPad version does the same but I don’t use that anymore now that it’s on the Apple TV.
This second one drives me insane!
Amazon! Is it really so hard, setting ShowWatchNext = ALWAYS?
