New Amazon Fire TV Cube enhances your watching experience with Dolby Vision”

The new Fire TV Cube is a modest, but minor upgrade from the first-generation device. Well, Amazon has just unveiled a second generation model.

The latter models will give you access to all Alexa's usual tricks but also the ability to turn the power on and off, change channels and adjust volume via voice, thanks to far-field mics built in to the TV.

Nearly everything Amazon announced today is available for preorder right now, with shipping starting in just for few weeks depending on what you order.

The HDR 10+ support in the Cube brings it to parity with the 4K Fire TV stick.

Another new feature on the Fire TV Cube (2nd Gen) is Local Voice Control, which lets it quickly execute some of the most frequently used voice commands, such as "Alexa, scroll right", "Alexa, go home", "Alexa, select number one", and more. Fire TV Cube also supports multi-directional infrared remote control, HDMI CEC to control attached consoles, set-top boxes and more, and "cloud-based artificial intelligence to control compatible TVs, sound bars, A/V receivers, cable & satellite boxes".

The new Fire TV Cube looks pretty much like its predecessor, and offers the same kind of features: It's capable of bringing video from apps like Netflix, YouTube and Amazon's own Prime TV service to your TV, and comes with integrated far-field microphones for voice control.

The Nebula Soundbar is available for preorder today for $229 and starts shipping on November 21.
