Amazon showed off the new Fire TV Cube, which is the new version of its streaming device. It has more power and comes with an Alexa Pro remote that can help you find it if you lose it.
Amazon’s third Fire TV Cube streaming gadget competes with Google and Apple. Upgraded technology and entertaining features like upscaling convert HD material into 4K. The Alexa Pro voice control is a remote with programmable buttons and a function that prevents loss.
The third-generation Fire TV Cube has many of the same features as the second-generation model. For example, it still has built-in microphones and can be used to turn on other devices with an infrared remote. Inside is an octa-core processor that runs at 2.0 GHz and is 20% faster than its predecessor.
On the back, there are Ethernet ports, USB ports, and an HDMI output. In the third generation of the Fire TV Cube, you can now use Wi-Fi 6E and connect a set-top box through an HDMI port. This will let you use Alexa to control your cable channels. You can tell Alexa to switch to a certain channel.
With Alexa Pro, you’ll never misplace your remote again
Amazon also made the Alexa Pro remote for people who like to use physical controls. This new version has a feature that will stop you from leaving it on the couch and losing it. Just tell Alexa, “Find the remote,” and it will make a sound to help you find it.
The remote has backlit buttons that light up automatically in dimly lit rooms. It also has two buttons that can be used to give Alexa tasks or routines. It works with Fire TV devices, as well as other TVs and sound bars.

Pre-orders for the Fire TV Cube, which start today, are now being accepted at a price of 160 euros. Those interested may place a reservation for the €40 Alexa Pro remote right now.
Amazon also unveils Fire TV Omni QLED TV
Amazon’s product show ended with a new TV that was added to its line-up. The Fire TV Omni QLED comes out with important specs and features in 65-inch and 75-inch sizes. This model of Fire TV will be the first to have a background experience for when you aren’t watching a show or movie.
The Fire TV Omni QLED works well because it has a 4K panel with Quantum Dot technology and full-array local dimming with 96 zones that can change contrast on their own. It works with HDR10+, Dolby Vision IQ, HLG, and HDR10+ Adaptive. The TV also has a system that uses the ambient light sensor to adjust the brightness based on the lighting in the room.
The Fire TV Omni QLED’s backdrop mode is its most noteworthy feature. You may use the screen to display your photo collection or select from 1,500 photographs and artworks. If you don’t want to buy a painting, you can exhibit one from the Art Institute of Chicago or the National Gallery of Art.
The best thing about this TV is that it works with Alexa. In ambient mode, you may ask Alexa about the screen or share your images. Users may add widgets like Calendar, Reminders, and Amazon device management.
