Xbox Cloud Gaming is coming to select Amazon Fire TV devices

Microsoft has announced a partnership between its gaming division and Amazon, which will pave the way for Xbox Cloud Gaming (beta) to come to select Fire TV devices. This will come into effect on July 25th.

At the beginning, the Xbox App will be made available on the Fire TV 4K Max (2023) and the Fire Stick 4K (2023). It will require a one time, $69.99 CAD purchase. This, combined with a Game Pass membership and a compatible controller, will provide access to a number of games, including:

  • Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II
  • Starfield
  • Forza Horizon 5

More than twenty -five countries will be supported, according to the press release.

Daniel Rausch, Vice President of Fire TV and Alexa:

“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.”

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

“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.”
