Amazon introduces Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote in India

Amazon announces the world’s most powerful streaming media stick yet

New Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K packs Dolby Vision and HDR10+ in the same device

"We are delighted to offer Alexa integration with the new Fire TV Stick 4K".

The Fire TV Stick 4K is the next-gen streaming stick to accompany the Fire TV 4K box, replacing the Fire TV Stick with Alexa that was introduced early past year. Once your trade-in is accepted by Amazon, add a Fire TV Stick 4K to your cart and the bonus savings of $20 will be taken out automatically during checkout. The Alexa Voice Remote includes "multidirectional infrared technology" to ensure it will work with any auxiliary devices, as well as your TV.

It will begin shipping on October 31 in the U.S. and Canada.

"Plus, the all-new Alexa Voice Remote lets you control your entertainment experience and use your voice to quickly find the content you want". Amazon unveiled the Fire TV Stick 4K in the United States a couple of weeks ago, and now, it has brought the same to the sub-continent.

Amazon's updated Fire TV Stick 4K also ships bundled with a new Alexa Voice Remote, which aims to be much more of a universal remote than its predecessor. Users in the UK, Germany, and India will have to wait until November 14 before orders begin shipping. It's available here, it's cheaper than Roku's stick, and it supports both HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision - the first device to do so without ditching the stick-shape. "It is a complete 4K solution our customers are looking for, all within a compact stick form factor".

In addition to facilitating voice commands, the Alexa Voice Remote also features features dedicated power, volume and mute buttons for controlling compatible TVs, soundbars and receivers. The same shipping timeline goes for the single Alexa Voice Remote.

The revamped remote is available on its own for $29 and will work with current generation Fire TV devices.
