Amazon's new Fire OS update brings picture-in-picture and more to Fire TV

10 monthes ago   |   By Tech Radar

Amazon barely said a word about it amid this week's Echo smart speaker announcements and squabbles with Google over YouTube videos , but there's a new version of the company's Android-based Fire OS headed to the Fire TV. The bulk of the details are relatively hidden in Amazon's developer documentation , where the company announced Fire OS 6 will be based on Android 7.1.2 Nougat. Unfortunately, it looks as though you can only update to the new system if you have the third-generation Fire TV. As Amazon says on the developer page, "At this time, the previous Fire TV devices will not uplevel...

Amazon's Nougat-Based Fire OS 6 Is Here And It's Got PiP Mode

Amazon's Nougat-based Fire OS 6 is here and it's got PiP mode, that is, if you're running a Fire TV device that has Fire OS 6, as Amazon notes that this is one of the features that will be coming to Fire TV with this new version of the software.
