LWA for TVs and Other Devices

Your customers don’t have to have a browser to access Login with Amazon from your device. Using a programming model known as code-based linking, you can link devices that have limited or no access to character input to Login with Amazon, devices such as Android or iOS smart watches and TVs and gaming consoles that are not running Android or iOS.
