Save $30 on Amazon's New Fire TV Cube

Amazon launches Echo Look in U.S., could popularize computer vision via Alexa

Amazon’s new smart speaker is a TV streaming box, and vice versa

It can also stream in 4K HDR with Dolby Atmos, at least from services that are supported on Fire TV.

With Alexa's roll-out, Amazon was of course going to make available its first-party devices.

The device, available for purchase starting June 21, lets users adjust the volume on compatible TVs, switch inputs, change the channel and power on and off by using their voice. Over the a year ago we invited customers to use Echo Look and give us feedback, which led to the launch of many new features-we're now excited to make the device available to all customers, with even more fashionable features and functionality to come that will help customers look their best every day. Because the Fire TV Cube works with your cable system, it also shows you what's playing now on TV, including spotlights for premium channels like Showtime or HBO. "Alexa launch Netflix." "Alexa play Ed Sheeran".

Amazon also says that many of your favorite apps now support enhanced in-app voice controls on Fire TV, to help you navigate through content by voice, with dozens more coming by year end. "And, it's just the beginning". Advanced beamforming technology combines the signals from the individual microphones to suppress noise, reverberation, content now playing, and even competing speech to make sure Alexa clearly hears your request, even next to your TV.

"They're always ready, hands-free, and fast", Amazon said of its smart speakers in a release. Simply say "Alexa, tune to NBC" or "Alexa, watch ESPN" and your wish will be granted. The company says cable boxes from providers such as Comcast, Dish, and DirecTV are all supported.
