Amazon Fire Stick supports Alexa Voice remote and TV control

Author at TechGenyz Tech
Amazon Fire TV Stick

Amazon has announced that now the Amazon Fire TV Stick will have Alexa Voice Remote and TV Control. The integration of Alexa with the Fire Stick basically means that users can find the movie or series that they are looking for on Amazon Prime Video just by asking Alexa to do so. Alexa will also be able to launch apps if the users ask Alexa to do so.

Managing the control over the Amazon Fire TV Stick becomes even easier as Alexa Voice Remote will help the users find the shows that they are looking for. It also makes the whole process a lot faster as Alexa is purely voice-activated.

Also, the inclusion of Alexa with the Fire TV Stick has made the entire tech ensemble smarter than before. Now the remote can be used to do multiple tasks simultaneously such as viewing live camera, checking sports scores, ordering food, booking a cab and streaming millions of songs.

To make the experience hands-free, the users can pair any Echo device with the Fire TV Stick which is made possible due to the far-field technology. The users can control the Fire TV Stick without having to move from their seats.

All they need to do is to tell Alexa what it is that they want. Firefox or Silk browsers will help users surf websites like YouTube, Facebook, and Reddit. The Alexa Voice Remote lets users power on and control volume on the compatible TV using a single remote. The Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote is priced at INR 3,999. But the existing Fire TV Stick customers can get the new Alexa Voice Remote separately for only INR 1,999.

It will be available on the market through pre-ordering and will start shipping in the last week of January.

We want to make music listening as easy and enjoyable as possible. The launch of the Hands-Free feature on the Amazon Prime Music app eliminates yet another step between you and your music, giving you the freedom from tapping the Alexa icon and simply asking for your favourite music. Since its initial launch in the US in 2018, providing Hands-Free listening in the app has been one of the top requests by our listeners for the music app. - Sahas Malhotra, Amazon Prime Music director

Amazon has also introduced a new feature both for Android and iOS on Amazon Prime Music mobile app called the Hands-Free feature. This will let users play music without touching the screen. Users can directly ask Alexa to play music just by asking and without having to click on the Alexa icon.

This feature can be turned off or on in the Settings menu on the Amazon Prime Music app.
