Hands On With The New Fire TV User Interface

To see our hands on with the new Fire TV User Interface please watch the YouTube video at the top of this post.

This is the Fire OS 5.2.4.0 (565189620) If you have a lower number it is the old version. You can try to force a update but Amazon seems to be very slowly rolling this out.

Amazon’s Statement on The New Fire TV & Fire Stick OS 

Coming later this year, a free software update for Fire TV will give customers a new OS. Fire TV will present a cinematic experience, offering video trailers and content screenshots to help customers access the content they want more quickly—without the need to open and close multiple apps. Finding and enjoying apps and games will be simplified with support for a customizable apps list on the home screen. Accessibility improvements will also be included, allowing customers to use Fire TV and any compatible apps with the VoiceView screen reader. These features will be available for all Fire TV customers as a free, over-the-air update, starting with the new Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote and latest generation Fire TV later this year.
