MUMBAI: Amazon’s Prime Video app is available for streaming to Chromecast, Chromecast built-in devices, and Android TV devices. Also, the official YouTube app for Amazon Fire TV is launching today in India on Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick 4K, both of which include the Alexa Voice Remote.

Customers can find the new YouTube app tile in their ‘Your Apps and Channels’ row. The official YouTube app on Fire TV is better than ever with expanded Alexa voice controls that help customers find, launch, and control content (pause, play, rewind, fast-forward) using their voice.
When they open the app for the first time they’ll be automatically prompted to download the app—once installed, they can simply say “Alexa, open YouTube” or click into the app to sign in to their existing YouTube account and access their full library of content including subscriptions, playlists, and recommendations. Plus, they can play compatible videos in 4K HDR at 60 fps on supported TVs and streaming media players. The new YouTube app will be the default YouTube experience for customers using a compatible Fire TV device, effective immediately.
