Amazon adds Alexa integration for Fire TV

Users can ask Alexa to start a show, help find a film to watch, and control playback

Amazon is bringing its Alexa features to Fire TV, allowing voice control for films, TV shows and more.

By pairing a Fire TV with any Echo device, consumers can ask Alexa to start a show, help find a film to watch, control playback and more. In addition, users will soon be able to view live video feeds from a supported smart home camera.

“Alexa is built in the cloud and always getting smarter, and these new Fire TV features are the latest way that Alexa is making it simple for you to enjoy and control your living room entertainment,” said Marc Whitten, vice president, Amazon Fire TV.

“Simply ask Alexa to play your favourite show, or keep an eye on your kids’ playroom during movie night, right from the comfort of your couch. This is just the beginning and we’ll continue to create new ways to simplify the way you interact with your TV—we can’t wait to see what customers think.”
