Unfortunately, there is no Kodi official app available on Amazon App Store however, the Android version of the app is perfectly compatible with Firestick and that’s the one you are going to download right now.
If you are using Firestick 4k, you should download the 64-bit version and for other Firestick models, the 32-bit version would be just fine for you.
