Amazon: Amazon launches new features for Fire TV Stick (3rd gen) and Fire TV Stick Lite – Eagles Vine

Amazon has added new features for Fire TV Stick (3rd gen) and Fire TV Stick Lite. Available on the new Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick Lite at launch, the features include a new UI, featuring a new Main Menu, Find destination, user profiles, and voice-first experience with Alexa. Amazon says it’s Fire TV’s biggest experience update ever.
With the Main Menu in the centre of the screen, you can navigate to key destinations like Home, Find, Live, Library, Profiles and more. Click up to discover popular content and watch trailers, or click down to browse expanded rows of shows and movies. Here, you can also access your apps, channels and games with the ability to pin and rearrange the order of your apps so you can easily access your favourites. With supported streaming services, you can now scroll over the app icon to peek at what’s inside and begin playback, or simply jump into the app itself. You can also customise the order of your apps, channels, and games in the Main Menu
Redesigned “Home” screen
The Home screen features a new look and feel and features content tailored to each profile and its user’s viewing preferences. You can find show and movie recommendations from subscription-based streaming services plus free content from ad-supported apps. Content recommendations appear in the ‘Popular Movies & TV Shows’ row and will improve over time as you enjoy more shows and movies from your preferred content providers.
Content discovery with newly-designed ‘Find’ tab
You can use the newly designed Find tab to filter by content like Movies or TV shows or search recommended categories like Comedy, Action or Adventure as well. If you’re searching for movies or TV shows, you can also filter by content from subscription-based apps or content which is available for free. Of course, if you know exactly what you’re looking for, you can do that in the Find tab as well, or ask Alexa.
User profiles
You can now create up to six user profiles on Fire TV, providing a personalised experience for everyone in a household. Profiles allow each user to access their viewing history, recommendations, watch list, live TV preferences and select settings, including accessibility features. After setting up your Alexa Voice Profile, you can switch Fire TV profiles by saying “Alexa, switch to my profile.”
