Amazon this afternoon has rolled out an update to its official Android app that includes several minor new features and bug fixes. Most notably, the update adds the Single Sign On feature to Amazon’s entire suite of app. This means that if you log into your account through the Amazon app, you’ll automatically be signed in to the company’s other apps, such as Kindle, Amazon Appstore, and Amazon MP3.

The update also adds a brand new icon and includes a couple of other bug fixes and interface tweaks. Also, if you happen to somehow still be stuck on Android 2.3 or below, this update does end support for your device, so you won’t be able to update.

The full change log is below:

  • Single Sign On: When you sign in, you’re automatically signed into all of your (downloaded) Amazon apps such as Kindle, Amazon MP3, and Amazon Appstore.
  • New Amazon app icon.
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements.
  • You must be running Android 2.3 or higher to upgrade to the latest version.

The update is available on Google Play Now.
