TikTok is making its way to Fire TVs in the US and Canada, according to an Amazon blog post. It comes just four months after TikTok launched a Fire TV app in the UK, France and Germany – a TikTok representative has confirmed The edge that the American version is the same. Once you’ve downloaded TikTok from the Amazon Appstore, you can open the app by simply saying, “Alexa, open TikTok.”
Unlike the existing More on TikTok Fire TV app, which limited viewing to a curated selection of videos, this newly launched app works just like TikTok on mobile. You can sign in or create an account and start exploring the For You, Follow, and Discover pages as you normally would.
The app has an autoplay feature that lets you play a continuous stream of videos. You can even use your voice to control videos and use commands like “play” and “pause” with the Alexa voice remote. Amazon also notes that the TikTok app is “coming soon” to Echo Show devices.
The Fire TV isn’t the only smart TV you can watch TikTok on, but it’s the only one in the US — until now, TikTok was only available as an app for smart TVs in Europe. Last December, TikTok rolled out an app for Samsung smart TVs in Europe and later announced its rollout to Android TVs in the UK, France and Germany. Last October, TikTok said it would also be coming to LG’s new smart TV models in the UK, France and Germany.
