Amazon has released an official Weather app for the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. This free app is the first app Amazon has ever released for the Fire TV platform. Once launched, the app displays a left to right scrollable list of added locations with a brief summary of the current weather, including the day’s high and low temperature. Selecting a location from the list brings up a detailed forecast with a 6 day forecast, an eight hour forecast, plus sunrise and sunset times. Locations can be added by entering either a city name or ZIP code. The settings pane has a single option to display temperatures in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. While it’s not the most feature rich weather app available for the Fire TV, it’s great to see Amazon supporting the platform with a first party app.
