The new Fire TV Stick 4K ($50) offers robust HDR support along with Amazon's latest Alexa Voice Remote.

The company claims that the remote can control power and volume on thousands of televisions, apart from Fire TV devices in India.

As mentioned before, Amazon also announced a new and updated remote along with Fire TV Stick 4K. While it made headlines for lowering the price of entry for 4K streaming devices this year, there are still some issues with the product line-up. You can buy them together for just $49.99.

This also means that much like Roku, Amazon is moving to a smaller form factor, and away from traditional streaming boxes, for most of its line-up. The redesigned remote has new power, volume, and mute buttons, along with the incredibly convenient voice command feature.

New Alexa Voice RemoteThe company also announced a new Alexa Voice Remote created to control TVs, soundbars, and receivers by using a combination of bluetooth, infrared, and cloud services.


The device will start shipping on October 31 in the United States and Canada, and will be available in November elsewhere in the world.

The "Alexa Voice Remote" is available for standalone purchase at Rs 1,999. “Our new quad-core processor delivers a fast and fluid experience, and support for Dolby Vision and HDR10+ provides an incredible picture. And it's the second recent addition to Amazon's Fire TV lineup. Amazon will sell it separately for $29.99, and also begin shipping to consumers on October 31.

The Fire TV Stick 4K is supposed to provide faster streaming and quicker load times with its new quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz. “Fire TV Stick 4K will allow more people to enjoy their favorite entertainment to the fullest extent, through Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.”.

Amazon's Alexa Voice Remote has a few neat new tricks, too. Amazon's newest Alexa Voice Remote with Bluetooth and multidirectional infrared technology is included as well, and users can also opt for hands-free voice control via a separate Echo device.
