If you fire up your Amazon Fire TV set-top box soon, you might notice some changes to the user interface. That's because Amazon has started rolling out improvements to the menu and how you use the device.
First up, content has been reorganised under a series of categories at the top of the screen. These are: Home, Your Videos, Movies, TV Shows, Apps and Settings. Your Videos is new, and brings together content from all your subscription services, leaving out paid-for films and shows.
There's a new app discovery screen, with three sections: Editor's Picks, Best New Apps & Games, and Trending.
App overlay screens now bear more information, such as a download status bar (so you can see how long until it's downloaded), and icons that tell you if the app is new, in Ultra High Definition (UHD, or 4K as it's also known) or stored in the cloud.
It also has tighter integration with Alexa – this is Amazon's artificial intelligence-powered personal assistant, that comes built into its Echo speakers.
The update is US-only for now, so we'll have to wait for the UK launch to try it for ourselves.
