Jorrit Van der Meulen, Vice President, Amazon Devices International says of the development: “This is a big day for Fire TV customers. Not only are we shipping a new Fire TV Stick—a faster and more powerful successor to our fastest-selling UK device ever — we’re also rolling Alexa out to every single Fire TV device in the UK. This will allow millions more customers to access Alexa, meaning they can get answers to questions, use Alexa skills, manage their smart home, or even find things to watch and control playback, just by asking.”
