Amazon has launched its popular media streaming device; the Fire Stick TV in India that comes with Voice control with Hindi language support and Remote. Amazon Fire TV Stick is a direct competition to Google’s Chrome cast, Roku, and many other streaming devices. With Amazon Prime slowly catching up in India, it only makes sense for Amazon to launch its streaming device to take advantage of the content.
The Amazon Fire TV runs on Android with Fire TV UI skin on top and comes with apps like Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube and more. It is powered by the MediaTek quad-core processor with Mali 450-MP4 coupled with 1GB RAM. The Amazon Fire TV lacks Alexa support, just the way Apple ditched Siri for AppleTV in India. It comes with Voice enabled remote to control the FireTV features, and it also offers Dolby Audio 5.1 surround sound.
The voice control feature lets you access Amazon Prime, Netflix, YouTube, Saavn, Gaana, Spuul and other streaming services. However, Hotstar isn’t supported at the moment. The Amazon FireTV is priced at Rs.3,999, but if you are a Prime member, you will get Rs 499 cashback in your Amazon Pay Balance. In case you are not a Prime member, you will be getting a one-year complimentary Amazon Prime service. It will be available via Amazon.In, Chroma and Reliance Digital stores in India.
