Amazon Fire stick

Any plans for zwift being available as an app on the Amazon Fire stick ?

I don’t think the Amazon Fire Stick has enough graphics power to run Zwift.

Ah didn’t realise that. Shame

How about the 4K Firestick?

I would think a firestick and/or a roku for that matter don’t have the processing power to run Zwift.

The Fire Stick 4K includes 1.5 GB of DDR4 RAM, 8GB internal storage, and a 1.7 GHz quad-core CPU, and Technologies PowerVR GE8300 GPU. It also supports Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HDR10+.

Thank you for your endorsement for Apple products. While I enjoy my iPhones 8 Plus with iOS 13, running Zwift via HDMI to a tv screen, the question posed pertains to Android devices. While lessor CPUs are successfully running the current build of Zwift, comparing apples and androids does not address the question of when can we expect the app to run on Firestick 4K. Speaking with support, it is the requirement of a dedicated graphics processor, in any target device, to be able to successfully render the animation at the speeds as delivered via the AWS servers. Since most graphic processors are now embedded on most of the main boards and not always advertised by the device vendors, Zwift developers are working to test every scenario, directly or via beta testers, in order to provide the best possible experience on each platform that is currently supported. If and when any device passes testing, then it will be released.

Ha Ha - fantastic response Beth. Using different Android TV boxes is something I am researching now as I just am not a fan of Apple. IF I get some working I will share back on here

I did come across this from 2017! https://bournemouthcyclist.co.uk/2017/11/02/zwift-finally-via-firestick/
