The Alexa Voice Remote can not only control your Fire TV Stick but it can also control your TV, sound bar with the addition of power, volume and mute buttons. You can also use Alexa to find and watch your favourite content and control your smart home products.
The Fire TV Stick 4K is compatible with Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG and HDR10+ plus Dolby Atmos sound. Amazon will be offering an Ethernet adapter for the Fire TV Stick 4K at a later date.
