Fire TV Edition

Amazon: Guidance Suggested
|This page describes an edition of the game that has been officially discontinued.|
This edition is no longer updated or available for download and has been replaced with Bedrock Edition.
Minecraft: Fire TV Edition was the former title of Bedrock Edition designed specifically for the Amazon Fire TV. Originally, the Pocket Edition Alpha for Fire OS was available on Fire TV, but it was replaced by the more expensive Fire TV Edition on December 19, 2016, the day that the Ender Update and Apple TV Edition released. Pocket Edition for Fire TV was discontinued, and the new edition was a free download for its previous owners. After the Better Together Update, it is no longer named Fire TV Edition.
Amazon naming and pricing
As of March 2019, this product is described as "Minecraft for Fire TV" on the Amazon App Store, potentially deviating from the practice of referring to all Bedrock Edition variants as simply "Minecraft". In Amazon usage, the plain "Minecraft" name refers only to the (Bedrock) edition for (non-TV) Android platforms.
The "for Fire TV" version retains a much higher price point than the vanilla Android versions (about 3x more as of March 2019).
