Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is one of the most popular gadgets and is also one of the best ways to convert a non-SmartTV to a Smart TV. Back in April last year, Amazon had announced the Fire TV Stick(up to 1080p). Today, the company has announced new Fire TV Stick 4K with Dolby Vision and HDR10+ support and also Alexa Voice Remote in India.
The Fire TV Stick 4K features a new quad-core 1.7GHz processor, delivering a fast streaming experience and gives you access to the vast catalog of content currently available on Fire TV including 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, and HDR10+ titles. It is the first streaming media stick available with Dolby Vision. By saying “Alexa, show me K TV shows” or “Alexa, watch Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” you can get the 4K contents easily. You can also enjoy 3D surround sound when connected to compatible home audio systems. Fire TV Stick 4K also gives you access to thousands of apps and Alexa skills, as well as over thousands of movies and TV episodes from Prime Video, Hotstar, Netflix, Sony LIV, Zee5, and others. With Firefox or Silk browsers, you can visit millions of websites like YouTube, Facebook, and Reddit. Listen to songs, playlists, live radio stations, and podcasts through services like Amazon Prime Music, Saavn and TuneIn. With Alexa available on Fire TV, just press and ask to easily find, search and control movies, TV shows, and apps. Alexa on Fire TV is always getting smarter with new Alexa skills and voice functionality. View live camera feeds, check sports scores, order food, book a cab and stream millions of songs using your remote.
You can also pair any of your Echo devices with your Fire TV for easy control of your entertainment experience using Alexa, hands-free. Just ask Alexa to play and search for movies and TV shows, launch apps, and control playback on your Fire TV without lifting a finger. Alexa on Fire TV, including the far-field control of Fire TV, will also become available on all existing Fire TV devices in India, via a software update, starting November 14.
