Xbox Cloud Gaming Is Coming To Amazon Fire TV Devices

One of the most accessible ways to play Xbox Game Pass yet!

Xbox has just announced a brand-new way to access Xbox gaming without a console, and it’s also one of the simplest and most attainable solutions yet – Amazon’s range of Fire TV sticks.

Both the Fire TV Stick 4K and the Fire TV Stick 4K Max will get access to the Xbox app , allowing Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in over 25 supported regions to access the library of available games from just about any TV or monitor. It is, essentially, what Xbox’s scrapped “Keystone” streaming device (early concept images of which just started circulating online) would have done only it’s ready for a device that’s affordable and that millions of people already have.

The app will be available for the two Fire TV sticks “soon,” and will work a number of different Bluetooth-enabled wireless controllers aside from an official Xbox Wireless Controller, including the PS5’s DualSense or the PS4’s DualShock 4. It’s clear that Xbox is intent on breaking down as many barriers as possible to get Game Pass and cloud gaming onto every screen imagineable, and this is definitely looking like the most attainable version of that yet.

Here’s everything you’ll need to get going and instructions on how to get started once the app is available:
