Dolby Atmos Box With Built-In Echo For Alexa Control

Alexa Smart Plugs

Amazon's other voice-controlled Fire TV devices require a push of the remote's mic button or a separate Echo device with Amazon's Alexa voice assistant. However, there is no word on whether or not Amazon Plans to bring the Fire TV Cube in India.

The Amazon Fire TV Cube is powered by a quad-core processor and comes with Ethernet port and Wi-Fi support.

Amazon also used the launch of the Fire TV Cube to announce that you can now use your voice to control Netflix - in addition to other apps you could previously use your voice to search and access like Prime Video, Hulu, ESPN, FOX NOW, SHOWTIME, STARZ, PlayStation Vue, CBS All Access, and NBC.

With its HDMI CEC, Fire TV Cube is also capable of invoking and turning the TV set on, making it possible for audible commands received via Alexa which can turn all services on and start playing a specific show or movie.

The earlier Fire TV devices did let you summon Alexa, but for that a remote was required. Amazon has today unveiled the Fire TV Cube, a hands-free cube-shaped box which is capable of streaming 4K UHD content and immediately goes head-to-head with Apple TV 4K.

It uses multi-directional infrared technology, which will help users control compatible TVs, sound bars, A/V receivers and a cable or satellite box.

"It "suppresses" noise and competing for speech to make sure 'Alexa clearly hears your request, even next to your TV, '" Amazon said.

Amazon's Fire TV Cube is able to catch audio from every direction through its far-field voice recognition, eight microphones. The move to couple Echo smart speakers with TV screens will offer brands and developers the ability to introduce a host of new visual features to their Alexa skills. And, it's just the beginning.

The unveiling of the Fire TV Cube came as Amazon became the first internet streaming service to buy rights to Premiere League soccer matches, though they will be available only to Prime members in Britain under a three-year deal.
