The official YouTube app has finally arrived for Amazon Fire TV devices, with YouTube TV, YouTube Kids, and additional device support launching later this year. The app allows direct access to YouTube content making it easier to stay within the Fire TV platform that hosts other entertainment apps such as Netflix, Hulu, HBO and others.

You can also use Alexa with YouTube. For example, using the command “Alexa, watch music videos on YouTube” will open the app and immediately start playing the top result. Other commands may sound like “Alexa, play Women’s World Cup highlights” or “Alexa, find makeup tutorials.”

Of course, you can also use Alexa voice commands to play, pause, resume, fast-forward and rewind, or go to the next video.

Starting today, the official YouTube app on Amazon Fire TV is available worldwide on Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen)Fire TV Stick 4KFire TV CubeFire TV Stick Basic Edition, and ToshibaInsignia, Element, and Westinghouse Fire TV Edition smart TVs. With the YouTube app, you can access music videos, your favorite creators, movies, shows, news and more.

YouTube will play in 4K HDR at 60 fps (with certain content) on supported TVs and streaming media players.
