Fire TV customers in the UK can now use an Amazon Echo to enjoy far-field voice control of their Fire TV. By pairing Fire TV with any Echo device, users can simply ask Alexa to play a movie, launch an app, control playback, or show live video from compatible smart home cameras – all hands-free.
Users can ask Alexa to search by title, actor or genre, control video playback and launch apps, as well as start apps or popular content available on Fire TV such as Amazon Video, Netflix, UKTV and more.
Far-field control is available in the UK on all generations of Fire TV and Fire TV Stick and can pair with any Echo device. Other recent Alexa features and capabilities include lyric search for music, music alarms, reminders, named timers, local search and movie show times, multi-room music, short term memory, and more.
