The bundled Alexa Voice Remote combines Bluetooth and multi-directional infrared technology with Amazon's proprietary cloud-based services to allow simultaneous control of TV sets and FireTV sticks without using the TV's native remote control. There is a dedicated power, volume, and mute button to control the TV, sound bar, or other AV equipment. The Alexa Voice Remote also has voice buttons and other Fire TV Stick controls. Previous generation Fire TV Stick users can now control the TV set using the new Alexa Voice Remote. Amazon also offers additional Alexa integration to existing Fire TV sticks via software updates.
Like previous Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Stick 4K supports content from services like Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar, Netflix, Zee5 and SonyLIV.
