This voice remote allows direct interaction with the Alexa Commands. A fun option is also bypassing this and utilizing a smartphone with Bluetooth capabilities. Within the box, there is the fire TV stick, which comes with Alexa voice remote and an HDMI extender. This helps with better Wi-Fi connectivity. A powerful micro USB charging block for two Triple-A Batteries needed for this remote. As the AD says; “Just plug Fire TV Stick into your HDTV and start streaming in minutes. Use the included Alexa Voice Remote to find the best way to watch across more than 200 channels and apps with universal search.” This is by far one of the fastest Wi-Fi and accurate voice search of any streaming media stick.
The Fire TV Stick is an outright steal for only $40. A perfect sized remote control device will make streaming your favorite HD flicks and DV shows quick and simple. A setup time of about five minutes. Additionally, there is a great option to install and use Kodi, a free media streaming app. A nice touch to help keep from paying typical fees generally accompanied with certain TV services. For an additional $40 it is pretty easy to upgrade to a “smart TV”. Giving you more options to enjoy a device perfect for kids and adults. This particular model is a 2nd generation upgrade released back in 2016. Compared to the previous versions the speed is noticeably faster.
With a great deal of storage space in its 8 gigs of memory, it can easily hold tons of games and apps. Amazon is kind enough to offer up free cloud storage for all Amazon accounts and their saved content. Giving the user the ability to sync across all Amazon devices. A wonderful aspect to this device is the Bluetooth 4.1 compatibility. This enables connections for the fire stick to phones and other Bluetooth controllers. For gamers, it even connects to Bluetooth gaming controllers. If the television or device can support it, the fire stick supports Dobies 5.1 audio to deliver a clear rich and powerful sound.
