AI-generated background art feature is now rolling out to Fire TVs

Back in March of last year, Amazon previewed an upcoming Fire TV feature that allowed customers to create AI-generated art for use as background wallpaper on Fire TV devices. That feature is now rolling out to devices that include the Fire TV Ambient Experience, which includes the 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick 4K Max and Fire TV Omni QLED Smart TVs.

The Fire TV Ambient Experience is a screensaver replacement that displays various informational widgets, like the Echo Show 15 does, in front of background images that can be set to curated art or your own photo album. The new Fire TV feature now rolling out allows for those background images to be unique AI-generated artwork created from your own description.

Just say “Alexa, create a [background/image/painting/picture] of [….]” followed by anything you can think of and up to four images matching your request will be generated. You’ll then have the option to further tweak the images using a selection of art style modifier options located at the top of the screen. Once you’re happy with the result, it can be set as the background of your Fire TV Ambient Experience and saved to your Amazon Photos account. As a reminder, you can manually launch the ambient experience by saying “Alexa, open ambient” or by holding the home button on your remote to bring up the shortcut menu which contains an ambient experience menu option.

This feature is rolling out now in the US only and should arrive on all compatible devices by the end of the month. Once again, this is only available to Fire TV devices that support the Fire TV Ambient Experience, which are the 2nd-gen Fire TV Stick 4K Max and Fire TV Omni QLED Smart TVs. While the upcoming Panasonic OLED Fire TVs will also have the ambient experience, those TVs aren’t expected to be available in the US, so will not have the AI-generated art feature for that reason. For now, that means only a tiny number of Fire TV owners will have access to this new feature.

    Those “art” images included in the email scream, “Fake”. No special tech skills, or eyes or expertise needed. Worse than the images on the calendars in the dollar stores. AMZ should be ashamed.
