Amazon unveils almost hands-free streaming TV device

Amazon launches Echo Look in U.S., could popularize computer vision via Alexa

Apart from this, Amazon's Fire TV Cube is also capable of its compatibility extension for cable companies like the DISH, Comcast, and DirecTV. Everyday Alexa commands - like reading out news headlines or weather forecasts - also get an upgrade because now Alexa can use your TV as a giant display to show you news updates/clips.

Experience true-to-life picture quality and sound with access to vivid 4K Ultra HD up to 60 fps, HDR, and the audio clarity of Dolby Atmos.

The Fire TV Cube is set to start shipping on June 21 with an IR extender cable, Ethernet adapter, and Alexa Voice Remote for $120. As an introductory offer, Prime members can pre-order Fire TV Cube on June 7 and 8 for a special price of $89.99, saving $30.

Users can also pre-order the Fire TV Cube and Amazon Cloud Cam for $199.98, which is a $40 savings. As we've seen with its Echo devices, Amazon does tend to launch the majority of its products in the U.S., followed by a global launch for the United Kingdom and other locations a month of so later.

Amazon has announced the Fire TV Cube, a new product in its series of media players that is controlled entirely by voice. However, the Fire TV Cube doesn't have all the smart capabilities as an Echo speaker, as it can't call anybody and it can't sync with other Bluetooth speakers.

"It's a new paradigm for how you control your TV", says Jen Prenner, Amazon's global head of marketing for Fire TV.

Lucky for those Prime content addicts, the technology goliath with a rainforest name has released the Fire TV Cube, a shiny, slab-sided device that combines a Fire TV dongle-on-a-leash with an Echo Dot smart speaker, and adds in an infrared emitter as the cherry on top.

Amazon Echo relies on Microsoft's Bing search engine and Wikipedia, while Google Home uses the company's own Google Search.

Heads up, fashion lovers: Amazon's $200 hands-free camera and style assistant Echo Look is now available to everyone in the USA who wants one.

A light comes on to remind you that it's listening.

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. "And, it's just the beginning".

It's a potent little package in many ways. Then imagine that control plugged into your TV so you can control everything plugged in there with your voice as well.
