Amazon Fire TV Cube blends new with old

08 June 2018

We broke down the Fire TV Cube earlier today. It's pretty great. Up to this point, however, I needed two Amazon smart devices working together to do this - an Echo ($100) and a Fire TV ($70) - but that's changing today with Amazon's newest smart device: the Fire TV Cube ($120). You can also get a live view in the Echo Look app or ask Alexa to take a 6-second video so you can see yourself from every angle.

In contrast to the $69.99 Fire TV, the Cube will have its own Ethernet port, a larger 16GB of storage, and a built-in speaker - circumventing the need to use a TV's audio output.

Another thing users can do is opt not to share your contact list with the device so you're less likely to send a conversation to someone. You can switch channels by saying, "Alexa, switch to channel 15", or, "Alexa, switch to ESPN".

The official ship date for the Amazon Fire TV Cube will begin on June 21st, and as of right now, the product is only available to customers in the United States.

Amazon Fire TV Cube is a hands-free 4K Ultra HD streaming media player with Alexa built in, allowing you to control your TV from across the room. "Amazon Fire TV Cube will only get better over time with the Alexa service always getting smarter".

But Canada was a British colony at the time and did not become a separate nation until Confederation in 1867. The White House was set on fire by British forces in 1814 during the War of 1812 with the United States.

Alexa is one of the most popular and powerful personal assistants. So it sits there waiting for voice commands even when you're not using the TV.

The Cube also has many standard Echo functions, optimized here for the a larger screen.

Not only is this an Alexa-powered streaming box for your TV, but it is also able to control other connected devices like a universal remote. When setting up accounts on the device, like Netflix and Hulu, it's easier to use the remote to type in passwords and account names than to dictate to Alexa.

You can actually change the "trigger" or "wake" word to something else other than Alexa on the Alexa app so you're less likely to accidentally record something and send it to someone.
