Fire TV customers can now watch TikTok videos on the big screen with the TikTok TV app now available exclusively on all Fire TV devices in Canada and the U.S. This includes the new Amazon-branded Omni series Fire TVs.
To call up TikTok, simply say “Alexa, show me TikTok” and the app will be queued up on the TV. From there, you can view and discover TikTok videos.
“TikTok is a household staple in our home, and I’m thrilled the whole family can now enjoy their favorite TikTok videos together on the best screen in the house with TikTok on Fire TV,” says Daniel Rausch, Vice President, Amazon Entertainment Devices and Services. “We love to pull up TikTok hands-free on our Fire TV Omni Series by just asking, ‘Alexa, play TikTok.’ We can’t wait to hear how our customers are enjoying the latest dance craze or viral trends with their families.”
To get started, visit the Appstore to download the app, sign in or create an account, and you’ll be able to view your TikTok feeds, including “For You” and “Following,” as well as some of the most popular content across the service on the Discover page.
The app will also offer AutoPlay, which will serve a continuous content feed without interruptions between TikTok videos. Once in the app, you can also control videos using your voice or with the Alexa Voice Remote with controls such as “play” or “pause.”
TikTok on Fire TV is available now on all Fire TV devices in Canada and the U.S. and will be coming soon to Echo Show devices.
