Can you watch videos on websites now with it?

I am sure you can. It should be no different from the browsing the web that is done via a pc/mobile with these browsers.

you can also voice search YouTube and Silk. Just use remote as usual to voice search and at the bottom of results it shows search within apps including YouTube and Silk. Also there is a better youtube on firefox and web pages are much better.


Some of the above comment was done on silk but a bit slow to use. It also asks to save passwords but it didn't work.

Considering it's Android anyway, you most likely probably could have just sideloaded it beforehand.

Wow, I didn't realise this box was so locked down. One to avoid for sure

It was a ballache trying to use a browser on the fire tv anyway, at least with these versions they are remote friendly and even use an air mouse of sorts.

It's not. Just activate ADB and away you go...
