The earlier Fire TV devices did let you summon Alexa, but for that a remote was required. However, the Fire TV Cube comes with Alexa built-in. Amazon said that the entire user experience of the Fire TV Cube has been designed keeping the “voice first” philosophy in mind. Also Read - Disney+ Hotstar membership at Rs 99?

Amazon has designed the Fire TV Cube to be much more than just a set-top-box. It can let you control your smart home accessories, tells you the weather, play music, and it is also a universal remote. All four sides of the Cube have IR blasters, allowing you to communicate and control everything right from TV to soundbars, and audio-video receivers.

You can ask Alexa about weather, the Cube will answer using the built-in speaker, However, if you say Alexa, play Stranger Things, it will turn on the TV, and pull up the show from Netflix. Of course, you need Netflix subscription for that.

In terms of hardware, the Fire TV Cube is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, and comes with 16GB built-in storage. The Cube also comes with support for Dolby Atmos audio, Ethernet and Wi-Fi 802.11ac.
