Xbox Cloud Gaming Announced for Select Amazon Fire TV Devices

While you will not get the full Xbox gaming experience on anything but a dedicated Xbox gaming console, starting in July (next month), a collaboration between Xbox and Amazon will see Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) released on select Amazon Fire TV devices. Specifically, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in over 25 countries will be able to play games directly from the Xbox app on select Amazon Fire TV devices through cloud gaming, bringing more ways to play Xbox on more devices and enjoy your favorite games. 

So… what are these ‘select devices’? The Xbox app will initially be available on the Fire TV 4K Max (2023) and Fire TV Stick 4K (2023), with pricing starting at $79. With the combination of a compatible Fire TV Stick, an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, and a compatible Bluetooth-enabled wireless controller, players will have a portable and affordable option to play the games available on Xbox Cloud Gaming.

Commenting on their collaboration, Daniel Rausch, Vice President of Fire TV and Alexa shared:

We’re committed to making it easy for customers to access their favorite entertainment experiences with Fire TV. We’re excited to work with Microsoft to bring the Xbox app to select Fire TV devices so customers can enjoy a vast library of high-quality games, allowing them to play amazing titles without the need for a console,” said Daniel Rausch, vice president of Fire TV and Alexa. “Now customers have even more ways to play the games they love, wherever they are, with just a compatible Fire TV Stick, Bluetooth controller, and Game Pass Ultimate membership.

Furthermore, Ashley McKissick, Corporate Vice President, Xbox Experiences and Platforms Engineering also shared:

The expansion of Xbox gaming to Fire TV devices offers players another option for enjoying their favorite games using devices they already own. For those who don’t own an Xbox console, this provides an affordable and convenient way to get started. With Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, there’s something for every type of player. We look forward to having more people join the Xbox gaming community.
