Select the Fire TV device you want to see.

Fire TV Cube (Gen 2)Fire TV Cube (Gen 2) has an ultra-powerful hexa-core processor that makes it more than twice as powerful as the first generation device. Plus we’ve added support for Dolby Vision and HDR 10+ content. The device delivers a fast, fluid experience with instant access to 4K Ultra HD content at up to 60 frames per second. Fire TV Cube (Gen 2) also comes with Local Voice Control, which is a new on-device processing feature that lets customers more quickly execute some of the most frequent voice commands. For example, “Alexa, scroll right,” "Alexa, go home," "Alexa, select number one," and more are up to 4 times as fast as before. Whether it’s turning on the TV, searching for your favorite music video on YouTube, or dimming the lights, you can simply ask Alexa from across the room with Fire TV Cube. Fire TV Cube (Gen 2) is available in the US and for the first time, in Canada, the UK, and Germany, and Japan.

Fire TV Cube (Gen 1)Fire TV Cube (Gen 1) was the first Fire TV device offering a hands-free TV experience (far-field control) — you can use your voice to access, launch, and control content, turn on your TV and AV devices, switch inputs, adjust the volume, play music, and more, without a remote or without pairing an Echo device with your Fire TV. When your TV is off, Fire TV Cube acts like an Amazon Echo; when your TV is on, it also acts like a Fire TV. If you have enabled voice control with your app, users can control media playback through their voice, and more. Like Fire TV (Gen 3), Fire TV Cube provides 4K ultra HD at 60 fps, HDR10 for bolder contrast and more vibrant colors, and Dolby Atmos for richer sound. Fire TV Cube's infrared blaster allows it to interact with your TV and AV setup.

FAQ for Fire TV Cube

Do I need to do anything differently in my app for Fire TV Cube than for other Fire TV devices?

Your app should work the same on Fire TV Cube as it does on other devices. However, Fire TV Cube tries to provide more of a hands-free TV experience, letting users control their TV, search for content, play/rewind/fast-forward content, etc., with their voice (without the need to push the voice button on a remote control). As such, to align with the voice interactivity of Fire TV, you should voice-enable your app.

How can I voice-enable my app? There are two main approaches to voice-enable your app:

  • Video Skills Kit (VSK): The Video Skills Kit provides a deep integration of your app's functionality and content with voice. VSK integration allows customers to use their voice to search and find your app's content (from Fire TV's universal search, not just within your app), launch content, control media playback, and more. The VSK integration has a couple of prerequisites. To integrate the VSK, your content must be integrated into the Amazon Catalog. To qualify for Catalog integration, if you have video-on-demand content, it must be in IMDb. After your app has gone through catalog integration, reach out to a solutions architect at Amazon for more information about integrating the Video Skills Kit. See Video Skills Kit for Fire TV for more details.

  • MediaSession: If you don't want to incorporate the VSK, you can implement Android MediaSession, which lets users control media playback through transport controls (play, fast-forward, rewind, etc). (MediaSession doesn't provide deeper voice integration to enable content discovery, channel changing, app launching, or other functionality.) To implement MediaSession, first check to see if you have already implemented the Android Media Sessions API. If you have, all you need to do is add a permission to your app's manifest file and implement voice commands for transport controls like play, pause, resume, rewind, fast-forward, and skip content. See Implement Voice-enabled Transport Controls with the Android Media Session API for details. If you haven't implemented MediaSession in your app, see this getting started with MediaSession tutorial.

Note that most apps will already include In-App Voice Scrolling and Selection through Fire TV.
