After announcing an interface update in December, only the third gen Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick Lite devices got the update initially. Now, Protocol reports that the Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube, and third gen Fire TV pendant are next in line to get the update. Amazon reportedly plans to update Fire TV OS and other devices in the coming months.
The update includes a new home screen with profiles front and center. Each member of the family can create a profile, with up to six profiles available per account, to get personalized recommendations along and to allow each member of the family to control their own watchlist.
A navigation bar gives you quick access to your library, live
content, and a search function. You’ll also see icons for top apps. The main
menu allows you to easily navigate to the content you want to watch with blocks
for genres and categories.
Your Fire TV devices should automatically check for the
update and install the update when not in use. You can check for the update by
going to your device’s settings, selecting My Fire TV, selecting About, and
finally Check for Updates.
