The big picture: Amazon's long-rumored Fire TV Cube marries two established product lines into a cube-shaped form factor.

Rumours about the Amazon Fire TV Cube surfaced in Autumn a year ago but remained relatively under the radar until Amazon itself confirmed the device's existence in April. With it, you can use a voice command to turn on those devices, change the volume, and more, without ever needing to sync your remote with the other devices.

Amazon's Echo speaker and Fire TV streaming player have both been hits, so now the company's mashing them together with the Fire TV Cube. When you get home, for example, a simple verbal command like "Alexa, watch TV" can power on your gear and even turn the room lights on.

As far as internal specs are concerned, the standout points are the eight microphones tucked inside the hardware, allowing for support for far-field voice recognition.

Venezuela charges Pompeo with leading coup d'etat
We are free and no imperialist will be intervening in our country", Arreaza said in an emotional response to Pompeo. Pence is expected to further address the issue at a White House reception for the OAS summit on Monday evening.

'And, it's just the beginning.

The Fire TV Cube supports 4K playback, HDR10, and Dolby Atmos but doesn't support Dolby Vision playback.

In the USA, the Amazon Fire TV Cube is now available for preorder for $119.99. The set-top box starts shipping on June 21, but you can pre-order now. It costs $119.99, with pre-orders starting today, but Prime members can pre-order it for a discounted price of $89.99 until tomorrow.

The Fire TV Cube will be an interesting test for full-blown streaming boxes, which have fallen out of favor as most consumers opt for cheaper streaming dongles that can fit behind a television. Get over 500,000 movies and TV episodes from Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO, SHOWTIME, NBC, and more. However, the Fire TV Cube comes with a voice remote, an auxiliary IR emitter to supplement the one built into the Cube itself, and a wired Gigabit Ethernet adapter just in case the user's Wi-Fi can't handle the punishment of a 4K video stream. What do you think of the new Fire TV Cube? You can even search for TV and movies by director or actor. Getting people to use Alexa keeps them tied to Amazon's services and ultimately buying more from the online retailer. The device will ship on June 21st. With Sonos just announcing a soundbar with integrated Alexa, the Fire TV Cube looks like a way to make your existing setup better connected and all for an impressive price.
