Amazon Introduces New Fire TV Stick 4K, Alexa Voice Remote

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K launched in India New Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K packs Dolby Vision and HDR10+ in the same device

Days after introducing the new Fire TV Recast, Amazon has taken the wraps off of another new Fire TV product. Additionally, it's the first of Amazon's Fire TV Sticks to feature Dolby Vision. You can say "Alexa, show me 4k TV shows" or "Alexa, watch Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan" to get started.

The Fire TV Stick 4K is supposed to provide faster streaming and quicker load times with its new quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz. There's 8GB of storage built into the device. Of course, it still has a microphone for using the Alexa voice assistant on the Fire TV Stick 4K, and still connects to the stick wirelessly with Bluetooth, so you don't need line of sight with it (you still need to point the remote at the other devices you want to control).

It means you can leave your TV's remote safely in a coffee table drawer, rather than have to switch between it and the regular Alexa remote just to adjust the volume.
