Amazon Fire TV Update Rolls Out to 2nd Gen Fire TV Stick

Amazon announced today that the updated Fire TV experience will begin rolling out to Fire TV Stick 2nd Gen today.

The company first announced the interface update in December, with only the 3rd Gen Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick Lite devices receiving the update initially. The all-new Fire TV experience then became available on the Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube (1st and 2nd Gen), and Fire TV (3rd Gen Pendant Design) in March.

Changes with the update include an all-new home screen with more personalization. The main menu allows for quick navigation to favorite streaming apps and previews of what’s playing.

An improved search feature allows users to search by genre, free content, and shows and movies already in the user’s content library.

The update also includes the option to make profiles for each member of the family, with up to six profiles available per account. That means everyone can get personalized recommendations and their own watchlist.

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.
