Xbox announced a new partnership with Amazon that will bring cloud gaming capabilities to Amazon Fire TVs. The latest Xbox Wire post detailed this, which confirms that the Xbox app will be available for selected Fire TVs in "over 25 countries," granting Game Pass Ultimate subscribers access to Xbox Cloud Gaming for these devices.

This collaboration between Xbox and Amazon will begin in July 2024 when the Xbox app launches for Amazon Fire TV devices, including the Fire TV Stick 4K and its Max version. Players can begin or continue their gaming experiences through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate by accessing an extensive library of "incredible" gaming titles like Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Forza Horizon 5, Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, and Starfield.

9th July 2024 Update: We've updated this news article to reflect that the Xbox app is now available for Amazon Fire TV devices for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers to start streaming their favorite Xbox titles to these devices. The news article continues below.

Xbox further detailed how players can begin their gaming experiences with Amazon Fire TV, which starts with installing the Xbox app on their device. They can sign in or register a Microsoft account before accessing the huge Game Pass library, which, if they're not subscribed yet, they can sign up through the Xbox app.

All that's left is for players to connect any Bluetooth-enabled wireless controller and start playing their games through Xbox's cloud gaming capabilities, with no console needed. This latest collaboration means that players can play their games wherever they go, whether moving from one room to the next or on their next holiday if their Fire TV device is being supported.

It has yet to be confirmed which countries will support Cloud Gaming via the Xbox app through Amazon Fire TV devices. Xbox will announce more details before its launch, so we'll update this news article to reflect the latest developments.
