Fire TV app: deeplink to the app download page within the app

Hi :

I am developing a Firetv/Firestick app, within my app I need to redirect user back to this app's downloading page in FireTV/Firestick's main interface, in order for them to update the app when there is a new version with some breaking change.

So is there any way that I can do this redirecting, or is it even supported?

Another question is, if there is a new version of an app, there will be an "upgrade" button on the app downloading page, right? if not, is there any other page I should redirect to for the user to upgrade this app?

Thank you

Hi there,

Thanks for posting! Yes, when a new version of your app is available, your users will see the "Update" button on your app's details page in Appstore. As for deep linking, please see the following article:
