The Xbox App Is Now Available On Select Fire TV Stick Services, Game Pass Introduces New 'Standard' Tier

Gamers will have a new and fascinating means to enjoy Xbox games, thanks to a partnership from online retail giant Amazon and Microsoft. If you have an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, you will be able to access the Xbox library without the need of a console from an Amazon Fire TV Stick. This is a considerable step forward to marketing the Game Pass as a service and diversifying its availability.

All that's required is your Fire TV Stick (Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K [2023], and Fire TV Stick 4K Max [2023]), download the Xbox App from the Amazon App Store, and a controller that is compatible with the device.

The Xbox Series X console may not be lighting the world on fire, with the market share for the console dipping below 25%. Game Pass Ultimate is certainly a good bargain for the amount of video games you're able to access. The operative word is "access", and being able to play Xbox titles on a Fire TV Stick defines luxury. The Xbox app is also on Samsung Smart TV devices.

Game Pass Tier Adjustments 

In other Xbox news, Game Pass is also seeing a price increase on July 10th, along with a new "standard" tier for new members that will not have day one games available for $14.99USD. Ultimate will be $19.99USD a month and will include all the benefits (Day 1 games, Online Multiplayer, GP Library on PC & Console, Cloud access). The annual price will become $74.99USD.

Game Pass For Console will no longer be available for new members, but if you're already subscribed with auto-renewal enabled, there will be no interruption to your service. 

  • Starting September 12, 2024, the price of recurring charges will change for existing members. Select countries are excluded from this price update. Recurring billing dates will not change. New prices take effect on the next recurring billing charge after September 12, 2024.

For the complete list of changes that may affect the country/region you live in, they can be read here.
