The Amazon Fire TV Stick HDMI dongle now incorporates a Voice Remote for the price of $49.99, allowing the owner to use their voice while searching for movies and TV shows. It can also access Alexa to get information on the weather, traffic, sports scores and more. The Amazon Fire TV set-top box has a MediaTek 64-bit quad-core processor, and a dedicated GPU, which the company claims, gives it a 75% performance boost compared to the first Fire TV. It also supports 4K video streams for the first time.
