Amazon’s new interface for Firestick and Fire TV is slowly making its way to devices across the world.
This now includes earlier models of Firestick and Fire TV.
If you own one of the following devices, you can expect this update within the next few days:
- Firestick 4K
- 3rd Gen Fire TV
- Fire TV Cube (all models)
For those using Fire TV Smart TV’s or 2nd Gen Fire TV Stick, this update will likely come later this year.
The 1st Gen Fire TV Stick and Fire TV are the only models that won’t receive this new interface.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This update will not automatically install on your device. Instead, it must be done manually.
You can check to see if your device has a software update waiting within Settings:
Many Fire TV users are excited about the new interface change as the device hasn’t received an update like this since 2016.
