But the Fire TV Cube is more expensive - and a bulky, big cube isn't the aesthetic everyone wants in their living room.
Amazon already offers Alexa voice control to TV owners through its Fire TV devices, by way of a voice remote or by pairing an Echo device with a Fire TV, for hands-free voice commands. As well ask barking at Alexa to "play Mr Robot" or "fast-forward 10 minutes", the digital assistant will be able to power on-off your TV, change the volume, or switch input. Plus, many customers already own a Fire TV Stick or other Fire TV device, and just want to extend its functionality. If it sounds familiar, that's because it gives customers with Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Stick 4K and Fire TV (3rd Gen) a lot of the power of the Fire TV Cube. Of course you also need to be an existing Echo user, otherwise the Fire TV Blaster will be totally useless. And since the Fire TV Blaster can control multiple devices, there will no longer be the need to keep multiple remote controls on the couch.
