There’s a whole new way to scroll TikTok. Amazon just announced that the TikTok app is now available on Amazon Fire TVs, allowing users to watch videos on their big screen right from the social media app. TikTok on Fire TV is available now on all Fire TV devices in the U.S. and Canada and will be coming soon to Echo Show devices.
To get started, users can download the free TikTok app from the app store and log in or sign up for an account. Once it’s been downloaded, users can also go hands free by just saying Alexa, “Alexa, open TikTok” to access all the latest dance challenges, life hacks, and viral videos on TikTok.
The app will also offer AutoPlay, which will serve a continuous content feed without interruptions between TikTok videos. Once in the app, you can also control videos using your voice or with the Alexa Voice Remote with controls such as “play” or “pause.”
“TikTok is a household staple in our home and I’m thrilled the whole family can now enjoy their favorite TikTok videos together on the best screen in the house with TikTok on Fire TV,” said Daniel Rausch, Vice President, Amazon Entertainment Devices and Services. “We love to pull up TikTok hands-free on our Fire TV Omni Series by just asking, ‘Alexa, play TikTok.’ We can’t wait to hear how our customers are enjoying the latest dance craze or viral trends with their families.”
