The Fire TV Cube is a 4K Ultra HD streaming media player powered by Alexa, offering users to control content with their voice. It contains eight microphones and uses beamforming to ensure requests are heard clearly, explains Amazon.
Fire TV Cube can also control your smart home devices and has a built-in speaker as well, for your Alexa queries and interaction with the voice assistant. The device can control compatible TVs, soundbar and A/V receivers from major brands such as Samsung, Sony, LG, Vizio, and more, explains Amazon.
The device has 16GB of storage and supports Dolby Atmos audio and has a micro USB, infrared and HDMI port on the back. Included in the box is an IR extender cable, ethernet adapter, power adapter and Alexa voice remote.
The Fire TV Cube is available for pre-order right now at $149.99 on Amazon.ca and ships on October 10. There’s also a Fire TV Cube and Ring Video Doorbell 2 bundle available for $358.99, offering $40 off.
“Fire TV Cube was the first hands-free streaming media player powered by Alexa, and since launching last year we have gathered a wealth of feedback from customers about how they use voice in the living room,” said Marc Whitten, Vice President of Amazon Fire TV, in an issued statement, from Berlin, Germany.
Fire TV Cube launches pre-orders today in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Japan.
