The Fire TV Cube is really optimized for the latest 4K TVs, but not all the latest 4K TVs. However the Fire TV Cube benefits from its built-in speaker, far-field voice control of TV and compatible smart devices in your house, Ethernet adaptor provided in the box, and double the built-in storage (16GB). The result is that instead of just using voice commands to navigate content and menus, you can use them for pretty much everything involving your home entertainment set up, whether that's turning your TV on and off, changing the channel, adjusting the volume, or switching between different inputs.
The communication between the Fire TV Cube and the other devices is carried out by multi directional IR blasters. Some apps or streaming services may require viewers to pick up the included remote to rewind or stop a show.

Amazon shares ended the US Tuesday trading session 1.87% higher at $1,696.35.
