Setup Alexa on Fire Tv Cube
Amazon Fire TV Cube: The device that gives the possibility to interact with TV and other devices through voice commands.
Most remote controls have buttons that you probably never use and, just as likely, hide the few that you use instead. Now Amazon has announced its latest news among the compatible streaming devices with Alexa, Fire TV Cube that allows you to scream voice commands to all your devices from one side of a room to another and to access other services of Alexa type weather and sports updates.
On the surface, the Fire TV Cube might look more or less identical to other Amazon streaming devices, including the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick models.
Just like Fire TV, the new Cube device can follow voice commands to play content via streaming apps such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, ESPN, Fox Now, Showtime, Starz, CBS All Access, NBC and PlayStation Vue. To find or browse the various content. You just need to say phrases such as “Find fiction movies”, “Turn on Netflix” or “Play Arrested Development”. In addition, the Cube supports 4K and HDR-10 video and Dolby Atmos sounds.
The biggest difference, when compared to other models, is that the newborn allows. It to be used completely without the use of hands. In fact, the other devices can only be controlled via the Alexa voice remote control. It allows you to speak and then is used only if you hold the microphone button simultaneously held. Fire TV Cube is instead equipped with eight microphones. Thanks to the voice recognition from far can be used to choose commands through the room, removing the underlying noises of the TV.
Fire TV Cube proposes itself as an assistant for the most generic and disparate purposes, focused on entertainment. The Cube can be connected via a Wi-Fi network to control other devices such as TVs, audio systems and decoders. All this allows to include a list of devices wider than those that can normally be activated via voice commands, also simplifying them. For example, with the TV turned off, just say “Alexa, play Orange is the New Black” to broadcast to Fire TV Cube the command to turn on the TV, start Netflix and resume playback of the program from the point where it was stopped.
For all the times when you will not be able to scream commands on the TV, Cube comes with a standard Alexa remote control as well as an IR extension cable. The Fire TV Cube can also connect to other devices connected to the Internet at home, transmitting feeds from security cameras, weather forecasts or sports results on television, or adjusting the lights.
