Fire TV users may have noticed a message from Amazon today, announcing the launch of Fire TV News.
Here’s the message, as shared by Dave Zatz on Twitter.
Here’s a preview of the app:
Here are the news partners Amazon has teamed up with:
- CBS News
- Yahoo News
- Yahoo Finance
- Yahoo Sports
- Yahoo Entertainment
- AOL News
- Al Jazeera
- Entertainment Weekly
- Sports Illustrated
If you’re using a Fire TV or Fire Tablet, you should see the new app with the title “News.” You won’t need to download anything as it will come built-in to all Fire TVs. You will also be able to ask Alexa to just “play the news” to access the new free news app.
If you don’t see the new app, your device may have not gotten the update just yet. Amazon announced that the app would be rolling out over the coming weeks, so keep an eye out.
