Xbox Cloud Gaming is Coming to Select Amazon Fire TV Devices

Today, Xbox announced a collaboration with Amazon to bring Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) to select Amazon Fire TV devices. Starting in July, 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. 

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 have an affordable option to discover the large library of games through Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta), including Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and Forza Horizon 5, among others, through the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate library. We’ve also included a quote from Amazon and Microsoft spokespeople which you can find below as well.
