    Watching photos on Fire TV 20th Apr 17 at 3:23 PM
    As Amazon has now stopped free cloud photo storage on Amazon drive, what is the easiest way to view personal photos on Fire TV stick?
    Happiness is buying an item and then not checking its price after a month to discover it was reduced further.

    Really? I just logged in and it still says I've got unlimited photo uploads

    It's just video/other files that are limited if you are a Prime account user

    I've got 185gb of photos up there!

    For free users Amazon no longer provides any cloud storage.

    That'll explain then. As posted the free cloud storage is no longer available to non-prime customers.

    Not sure how you would get photos (or other files) onto the Fire TV stick?
    You might well be able to use something like ES File Explorer to transfer photos to it, but the space would be limited.

    Probably the best option would be to install the Plex app or sideload Kodi, and view photos stored on a network computer or drive.
