How to Change Amazon Fire TV Background Ambient Experience | Digital trends

When it comes to streaming platforms that expand our access to a world of services from Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+ and more, there’s no doubt that Amazon Fire TV is one of the biggest on the planet. Millions of users around the world turn to its sticks, cubes and TVs in part because of their low cost, but also because they reliably deliver a consistent experience across them all.

An exception is for what is known as ambient experience. It’s a mix of beautiful backgrounds and widgets with varying degrees of usefulness, depending on how deep you’re actually in the Amazon ecosystem. But for now, Ambient Experience is only available on the Amazon-branded Fire TV Omni QLED TV running on Fire TV and on the 2023 Fire TV Stick 4K Max model.

Backgrounds are what we will focus on here. They are really good and Amazon has given us a ridiculous number of them. So you want to change them regularly. Here’s how.
