Open up the Amazon Alexa App on the mobile device you have connected to your Echo. This means that it's possible to ask Alexa on the Cube to "tune to CBS", prompting it to send commands to the cable box and switch to that channel. Dubbed the Fire TV Cube, this new product will still let you stream content to your TV in 4K while controlling playback with your voice. Apps like NetflixPrime Video, HBO, Hulu and more will give you access to over 500,000 movies and TV shows. "And, it's just the beginning".
As should be expected by now, the Fire TV Cube also supports 4K HDR content (HDR10, not Dolby Vision, if that matters to you).
As far as internal specs are concerned, the standout points are the eight microphones tucked inside the hardware, allowing for support for far-field voice recognition. You'll find advanced beam forming technology to help suppress noise and enable the device to zero in on your voice even with "competing speech" in the background.
Enjoy tens of thousands of channels, apps, and Alexa skills. Amazon (AMZN) tweaked its Fire TV user interface for the Cube to make it a "more natural way to navigate", the company said in a statement.
As smart and useful as our TV sets have gotten, how we interact with them remains quite dumb.
The Alexa service is always getting smarter with new features and hands-free voice functionality added regularly. Unveiled in April 2017, the Alexa-powered camera is created to sit on your dresser to take photos and videos of your outfits, help you share them to social media, and even give fashion suggestions.
But beyond playing movies and shows and answering Alexa queries, the Fire TV Cube will also work as a universal remote. It comes with an IR extender cable and Ethernet adapter, and will start shipping on June 21.
Priced at $120-it's $90 right now for Prime members-the Fire TV Cube is now the most expensive Fire TV product.
