Amazon launches 3rd Gen Fire TV Cube in India. It is powered by a new 2.0GHz octa-core processor, which is 20% more powerful than the previous generation. The Fire TV Cube supports cinematic 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Vision, HDR, and also an improved sound experience with Dolby Atmos Audio. It supports Super Resolution Upscaling, which provides enhanced picture quality by seamlessly converting HD content into 4K for greater detail, contrast, and clarity.
The new Fire TV Cube also includes an HDMI input port and allows users directly connect the compatible set-top boxes, soundbars, and more. Apart from the HDMI port, the device supports Wi-Fi 6 and also features a new Ethernet port if you need a wired network connection. Furthermore, Fire TV Cube also includes an additional USB port for easy connection to compatible webcams for video calling with Alexa Communications.
Now, users can just say “Alexa, switch to DTH” instead of manually changing inputs, and browse channels from compatible set top box providers by asking Alexa. With Fire TV Cube, customers can easily control their TV, set top boxes, and on-demand streaming via Fire TV’s Alexa Voice Remote, or hands-free with Alexa. The Fire TV Cube supports Audio Streaming for Hearing Aids (ASHA), allowing customers to directly connect to compatible Bluetooth hearing aids.
Alexa Voice Remote Pro
The Alexa Voice Remote Pro is a new premium remote that is compatible with most Fire TV streaming media players and Smart TVs with Fire TV built-in. It has a new Remote Finder feature that helps you quickly find misplaced remotes. Simply say, “Alexa, find my remote,” or use the dedicated Remote Finder button in the Fire TV app, and Alexa Voice Remote Pro’s built-in speaker will emit an audible ring to attract your attention.
It also includes two new customizable buttons, and you can easily personalize your remote by programming these buttons to create one-touch shortcuts to favorite apps, channels, and anything Alexa can do. For example, you could choose to program a button to have Alexa dim the lights, check the weather, or start an Alexa Routine for movie night. Alexa Voice Remote Pro also includes motion-activated backlit buttons that automatically illuminate when the remote is picked up in low-light settings.
The 3rd Gen Fire TV Cube is priced at ₹13,999 and goes on sale in India soon. You can sign up to be notified when it is available here. The Alexa Voice Remote Pro is available for pre-order today on Amazon.in at ₹2,499.
“With all-new Fire TV Cube, customers can futureproof their home with a superior viewing experience that’s fast, supports cinematic 4K video, and allows for hands-free Alexa to control home entertainment systems,” said Parag Gupta, Director and Country Manager for Amazon Devices India.
