Amazon introduces Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote in India

Amazon introduces Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote in India”

Today, Amazon announced the latest addition to its streaming media Fire TV lineup, the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K.

The dedicated streaming media device market continues to heat up.

One of the larger complaints we had about the Amazon Fire TV is that the remote didn't let you control the volume like some other streaming devices - something that Amazon has set out to fix with the new Amazon Alexa Voice Remote.

Not too long ago, Amazon announced a plethora of new hardware.

Of course, you don't have to buy a Fire TV Stick 4K just to get this cool new remote, which is separately available at $29.99 and also compatible with the previous Fire TV Stick version, as well as the third-gen Fire TV.

Amazon India has priced the Fire TV Stick 4K in India at Rs 5,999 and it comes bundled with the Alexa Voice Remote. That's one up on the rival £70 Google Chromecast Ultra dongle (which only has 4K and HDR), although next week's Google event could bring the Chromecast line up to speed. It's the newest update to its best-selling Fire TV stick and, according to the company, 80 percent more powerful. "We've listened to our customers and pushed to deliver the complete 4K solution they are looking for, all within a compact stick form factor", said Amazon fire TV vice president Marc Whitten. Amazon is still selling the non-4K Fire TV Stick for $39.99 and the Fire TV with 4K (pendant design) for $69.99.

Another big change with the updated Fire TV Stick is in the remote - it finally includes a power button and volume controls, which have always been a top request from many users.

The Fire TV Stick 4K is available for pre-order on Amazon for £49.99 and will start shipping on 14 November.

It will begin shipping on October 31 in the United States and Canada.
