Amazon upgrades Fire TV Stick with Alexa voice control

By Anuj Sharma - January 16, 2019
Just say, ‘Alexa, find comedies’, or ‘Alexa, play Mirzapur.’ Users can also view live camera feeds, check sports scores, order food, book a cab and stream millions of songs using your remote.

Amazon today announced the Fire TV Stick with Alexa voice control allowing users to search and stream movies and TV Shows on Amazon Prime Video or launch their favourite apps by just asking Alexa. The Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote is priced at Rs 3,999.

If you are an existing customer, you can purchase the all-new Alexa Voice Remote (with TV control) separately for Rs 1,999. The Fire TV Stick with all-new Alexa Voice Remote is available for pre-order starting January 16, and will start shipping by January end.

You can control your music experience (hands free) by pairing any Echo device with Fire TV Stick. Just ask Echo to play and search for movies and TV shows, launch apps (e.g. Netflix, Hotstar, Voot, SonyLiv, Zee5, and more), and control playback on your Fire TV without lifting a finger, for instance: ‘Alexa, forward 10 mins’ or ‘Alexa, Play ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ on Fire TV’.

“The all-new Alexa Voice Remote is compatible with all Fire TV devices available in India and can control power and volume on thousands of TVs. Fire TV Stick has truly bought back entertainment into the living room. Today, we are delighted to make Alexa an integral part of this experience. The Alexa Voice Remote incorporates a significant customer feedback to include TV Controls and avoid fumbling for multiple remotes,” said Jayshree Gururaj, Director, Amazon Devices.
