Amazon is working on a new Prime Video interface for mobile devices

Salke said the new interface was “in the middle of being developed and coming soon,” but did not give a more specific timeframe for release. Read more ›

Amazon has given Variety a preview of the new Fire TV interface, in the form of the image you see above. This is our first clear look at the new interface, if you don’t count the screen grabs from earlier this month. You can see the vertical navigation menu from the existing interface has been replaced by a horizontal menu along the top of the Home screen.

There have been small refinements to the interface here and there, but it’s due for a bigger refresh and it looks like it’s happening soon. After noticing that the new Fire TV Stick 2’s product page was notably lacking images of the device’s interface, I did some digging and found a note on Amazon’s developer portal that states the Fire TV image guidelines have been updated “for [an] upcoming Fire TV UI refresh.” Read more ›

However, a flat design wasn’t the only UI considered. Panos Vassiliadis, interface designer of the Fire TV, has posted several screenshots of a bolder, more three-dimensional alternate Fire TV user interface which he himself is more fond of than the interface which shipped on the Fire TV.
