Photos and personal videos you have saved to Prime Photos are automatically available on your Fire TV through the Prime Photos app.
With the Prime Photos app, you can view your photos and personal videos (under 20 minutes long) from Prime Photos directly on your Fire TV.
The Prime Photos app is pre-installed on your Fire TV. You can launch the app from Your Apps & Games on the Home screen. If you are a U.S. customer, you can also ask your Alexa voice remote to “Show Photos.”
Once you've opened the Prime Photos app, you can use the navigation menu to browse your photos and personal videos:
U.S. Prime members can also ask Alexa to search for photos by the time period they were taken and the things in them. You can ask Alexa things like “Show photos from last year” or “Show photos of beaches.”
While viewing a collection of photos or videos, you can press the Menu button on your remote for additional options, including options to sort by Date Taken, Date Uploaded, or Set as Screensaver.
Note: You can also use the PIN Protect Prime Photos App preference in your parental controls settings to block access to the Prime Photos app on your Fire TV. To learn more, go to Set Up Fire TV Parental Controls.
The Prime Photos app features an "Access Prime Photos" setting you can use to manage access to your photos and videos from Prime Photos.
To manage this setting:
When you set Access Prime Photos to "disabled," data from Prime Photos is not downloaded to your Fire TV, and your photos and videos won't show when you open the Prime Photos app.
Any photos and personal videos saved to your Prime Photos are automatically available through the Prime Photos app on your Fire TV, when you register your device to the same account you use to access Prime Photos.
If you want to add or manage photos or personal videos in Prime Photos, you'll need to use the website or Prime Photos mobile apps. To learn more, go to Managing Photos & Videos.
If you are a U.S. customer, you can also ask Alexa to “Play slideshow.” U.S. Prime members can ask Alexa to “Play slideshow of [person/place/thing].”
The slideshow automatically advances through photos and personal videos from your current selection, and restarts when it reaches the end. For personal videos, the first frame of the video displays as a photo in the slideshow.
Use the Left and Right buttons on your Fire TV remote's directional keypad to view the slideshow at your own speed.
You can customize the screen saver that automatically displays on your Fire TV by selecting your most recent 500 photos, Favorites, or a specific photo collection from Prime Photos. You can also select your Family Vault photos.
To use your photos as your Fire TV screen saver:
Make sure the photos from the collection or folder you've set as your screen saver are still available in your Prime Photos account. You may need to check on the Prime Photos website or the Prime Photos mobile app.
If the photos are still saved, restart your Fire TV (by disconnecting the power cord and plugging in back in), then wait for the screen saver to launch again.
You can also send photos and personal videos from your compatible Fire tablet or Fire phone to your Fire TV using Second Screen.
Compatible devices include:
