Amazon’s new Fire TV Cube combines Alexa and hands-free streaming

Siri at WWDC 2018

Fire TV Cube has a built-in speaker that lets you check the weather, listen to the news, control compatible smart home devices, and more-even with the TV off. Fire TV Cube is always getting smarter with new Alexa skills and voice functionality.

Amazon has announced a new Fire TV device called the Fire TV Cube. Amazon's Fire TV Cube can be used soon after plugging in, or even through a manual installation.

"Power your TV on and off, change the volume, switch to different inputs and change the cable channel - all with just your voice", Amazon said in a statement.

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

The diesels are underpinned by a turbocharged 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder touting xDrive30d, which offers 195kW and 620Nm. The 2019s available at launch will have five seats; an optional third row with power controls will be available later.

The Fire TV Cube connects to your TV and acts as a 4K Ultra HD streaming media player that allows access to content from Amazon Prime services, Hulu, Netflix and other apps.

The new Echo smart speaker form factors will likely drive greater usage of Alexa.The development of new experiences that arise with the Echo Look and Fire TV Cube will help to expand Alexa's ability to complete more interactions and will likely help the voice assistant and these devices occupy a growing amount of consumers' time. Through voice, users can maintain hands-free voice control, with basic instructions like search, play, pause, and fast forward, among others, while also operating the TV, sound bar, receiver cable or satellite box. In an official statement the company said, "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".

Amazon has designed the Fire TV Cube to be much more than just a set-top-box. And, it's just the beginning. Right now if you are a Prime member you can pre-order you can get it for $89.99 but if you want the $89.99 price you need to pre-order today. On June 7 and 8, Amazon is letting Prime Members pre-order the device for $90.
