Check your doorsteps, the all-new Amazon Fire TV is now shipping! The latest addition to the Amazon Fire TV family of devices works seamlessly with 4K Ultra HD or HDR compatible TVs, giving you true-to-life picture quality and sound with vivid colors, 60 fps, HDR, and Dolby Atmos audio – all at an affordable price.
Even more specs
The all-new Amazon Fire TV provides your app with the power it needs to perform its best and truly engage your customers. It’s smooth and responsive because it sports a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor attached to 2GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. Dual-band, 802.11ac Wi-Fi or the optional Amazon Ethernet Adapter provide your app with the bandwidth to ensure the best possible streaming experience.
With the most accurate voice search on a streaming media player, you can ask your Alexa Voice Remote to find, launch, and control content. Press the button on the Alexa Voice Remote and say, “Find dramas,” and Alexa will show you results from apps like Netflix, Hulu, SHOWTIME, Amazon Video, and more. Plus, you can pair Fire TV to any of your Echo devices to enjoy hands-free, far-field voice control, powered by Alexa.
Featuring Fire OS 6
The all-new Amazon Fire TV also marks the debut of Fire OS 6. Based on Android Nougat (Android 7.1.2, level 25), Fire OS 6 includes many new features and improvements. Since the underlying version of Android has changed from previous Fire TV devices, however, your existing Fire TV app or game may require minor updates to maintain compatibility with Fire OS 6 and our all-new Fire TV. For more information on preparing your app for Fire OS 6, check out our documentation.
