Amazon’s new Fire TV Cube allows users to control their television streaming just by using their voice, thanks to Alexa. Users can ask Alexa to power on the TV, browse certain genres of shows and movies, raise and lower the volume, rewind, jump to another season and any other commands you would generally have to use the remote for.
The Fire TV Cube is a small black cube that not only works as a streaming device, it can also tell users the weather, play music and control smart-home accessories just like the Amazon Echo.
Retailing at $119.99, the Fire TV Cube ships June 21 and is currently only available for U.S. customers.
