Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids (ASHA) launches on Fire TV Cube and Fire TV Omni Series for compatible Starkey Bluetooth hearing aids.

We’re thrilled to announce Fire TV Cube (2nd gen) and Fire TV Omni Series now support Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids, commonly known as ASHA. This makes Fire TV the first-ever streaming media player to support ASHA and allow customers to directly connect compatible Bluetooth hearing aids. The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders reports that Fifteen percent (37.5 million) of Americans over the age of 18 report some hearing loss and nearly 29 million US adults could benefit from using hearing aids.

With this feature, your hearing aids connect with Fire TV at the system level, so you can not only enjoy audio from your favorite apps but also Alexa, music, navigational sounds, and more. Here’s more on how to enable this capability:
