New Fire TV Interface update begins rolling out today to more devices

Recommended Posts



Amazon has announced that the software update which brings the new Fire TV interface will begin rolling out to more devices starting today. The Fire TV Stick 4K, both 1st and 2ng-gen Fire TV Cubes, and the 3rd-gen Fire TV pendant are the models that will be getting the interface update over the next few days.

As with all of Amazon’s software updates, this interface update is expected to roll out slowly, so while some devices will receive it today, it likely will not be available to everyone all at once. There is no way to manually install the update or jump the line, but you can go to Settings > My Fire TV > About > Check for Updates to manually see if it is your device’s turn to update.

The Fire TV Stick Lite and the 3rd-gen Fire TV Stick already have the new interface. The 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick and all Fire TV Edition devices will be getting the new interface later this year, but we don’t know when exactly that will be. Amazon has already stated that the 1st-gen Fire TV and the 1st-gen Fire TV Stick will not be receiving the new interface.

That just leaves the 2nd-gen Fire TV. It’s supposed to be on the list of devices getting the new interface, but it’s oddly missing from Amazon’s announcement today, so it’s unclear at this time if they simply forgot to include it in the announcement or if it won’t be getting the new interface at all, like the 1st-gen devices. I’ve reached out to Amazon for clarification and will update this article when I hear back from them.
