Amazon announced yesterday that Fire TV and Fire TV Stick are equipped with new functions. The update, which only appears once uninteresting for Germany, but could soon also in this country encounter active use, Amazon Alexa should offer even outside the USA. The universal search then covers more than 75 apps and channels, content can be so directly from the corresponding service search. Is a wanted content available several times, the Fire TV will also offer a choice to borrow, buy or viewing. The user can then simply opt for from him the preferred service.

the personal recommendations will be new, based on the services that the user has available. then recommended content from Netflix for example be displayed if the user has a Netflix subscription on the Fire TV Home. Amazon Video can however complete control via Alexa. So one can then say that you want to rewind two minutes would skip the bias or simply skip to the next episode of a series. Sounds pretty easy when it works well because, which can be assumed, however.

The latest addition are sports updates. If you have specified a Message Favourite Team via Alexa settings simply you can learn about the latest results or upcoming games by Alexa to “Sports Update” asks. Also very handy if you have a benefit for it. Amazon does not tell whether the update is distributed worldwide and is limited to the US, so look simply times your eyes open if your TV Fire or Fire TV Stick announced the availability.
