New FireTV user interface comes to more devices, new Alexa remote

26 Mar 2021 | Rasmus Larsen |

Amazon's "biggest experience update", with the revamped user interface, is now available on many more FireTV devices. The company also introduced a new Alexa Voice Remote.

Revamped user interface

Amazon introduced its new FireTV user interface in December 2020 where it was limited to the latest Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick Lite devices. It is now also available for Fire TV Stick Lite, Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Stick (3rd Gen), Fire TV Cube (1st and 2nd Gen), and Fire TV (3rd Gen).

New FireTV user interface

It is coming later this year to Fire TV Smart TVs and Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen). Amazon has not announced plans to bring it to older devices. The company also announced a third generation of its Alexa Voice Remote, now with four sponsored buttons. It is available through amazon.com.

FAQ: New FireTV user interface

Q: How do I access the apps and channels that I have pinned to my Fire TV Home screen? Your pinned Apps and Channels will now appear in the Main Menu. If you have not customized your Apps and Channels row on your current Fire TV experience, you will see a selection of preset apps pinned to the first several positions, followed by any app that you selected as part of the setup process or that you have recently launched. You can also click on the three dots on the Main Menu to view all of your downloaded apps. Q: Can I change the apps and channels that I have pinned to my Fire TV Home screen? Yes. You can add and remove apps from the Main Menu using the ‘pin,’ ‘move,’ and ‘remove’ options displayed when you hover over any app tile. Q: How do I access my recently watched TV shows and movies? The ‘Recent’ row is still the first row beneath the Main Menu, but has been renamed to ‘Next Up for You’ and features recently watched TV shows and movies. Q: How do I access my recently used apps? Your recently used apps now appear in the “Recently Used Apps” row below the Main Menu on Home. Q: How do I search and browse TV shows, movies, and apps? I don’t see them in the Main Menu anymore. ‘Find’ replaces ‘Movies,’ ‘TV Shows,’ ‘Appstore,’ and the search magnifying glass you previously saw at the top of your Home screen. Now you can simply go to ‘Find’ to browse, filter, and search across TV shows, movies, and apps. Q: How do I access my Fire TV ‘Settings’? I don’t see it in the Main Menu anymore ‘Settings’ is accessible through the gear icon on the Main Menu. Q: How do I access my purchased and rented content that used to live in ‘Your Videos’? Your Videos’ is now called ‘Library,’ and is located on the Main Menu. ‘Library’ is the new destination that houses all your rented or purchased content, watch list, and videos. Q: I’m a Fire TV Recast customer. Where do I see what was previously on the ‘DVR’ tab? You will be able to see what is airing now from the ‘On Now’ row on the Home screen, as well as in ‘Live.’ Your scheduled, existing, or new recordings will now live in ‘Library.’ Q: Where can I find Free Content? To access thousands of hours of free TV episodes and movies, click into Find on the Main Menu, and navigate to the Free category. You can browse free TV episodes and movies from popular streaming apps such as IMDb TV, Tubi, Pluto TV, and more. Q: How many different Profiles can I create? You can create up to six individual Profiles with the all-new Fire TV experience. Kids Profiles with Amazon Kids will begin rolling out to customers in the US this holiday, with UK, DE, JP and CA following next year. Q: When will my device get the next-generation Fire TV experience? The all-new Fire TV experience will begin rolling out to select devices this year, starting with the all-new Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick Lite. Support for additional devices will follow into early 2021.
