Amazon today is rolling out a new experience for Prime Photos, its photo backup and sharing app, on Fire TV and Fire TV Stick.
With the update, you can now ask Alexa to display your photos, including those saved to your various albums, photos taken on a certain day, week or month, those snapped at a particular location, or even those of specific people or things – like photos of your dog, for example.
The Prime Photos app comes pre-installed on Amazon devices, so there isn’t much you need to do in order to take advantage of this update.
After adding photos to Prime Photos through your smartphone app or desktop uploader, they’ll automatically appear in the Prime Photos app on Fire TV.
You can then use the Fire TV voice remote to display your photos, either by date or album.
One of the features of Amazon’s photo service, which is a perk for Prime members, is a group-sharing feature called “Family Vault.” This allows up to five family members to contribute photos to an album they can all access.
