Amazon’s new Fire TV Cube brings Alexa voice control to more devices

Amazon has unveiled a new TV streaming device: the Amazon Fire TV Cube (3rd generation). It was announced as part of the Amazon launch event in September 2022, though disappointing for Amazon, it was leaked hours before the event began.

The previous iteration of the Fire TV cube really impressed us. The latest version, Amazon Fire TV Cube (2nd Gen), scored four and a half stars in our review and is one of the best streaming devices we’ve tested. It offers 4K HDR playback and supports Dolby Vision, HDR 10, HDR10 +, HLG and Dolby Atmos to help you make the most of your favorite shows and movies.

This new iteration takes a lot of what we loved and adds several improvements to Wi-Fi 6E-enabled connectivity and a new Ethernet port, which should help reduce buffering time for 4K streaming content.

Interestingly, the new Fire TV Cube will also get a second HDMI port, but for input, not output. This means you can connect one of the best gaming consoles (such as the PS5 or Xbox Series X) and have voice control over more gadgets in your home theater setup.
