Amazon’s New TV Streaming Stick Has Echo-Like Voice Controls | TIME

Check this Amazon page for details

"Because the new Fire Stick will include the same Alexa assistant as Amazon’s other hardware, like the Echo, those who own the updated Fire Stick will also be able to check their shopping lists, order a pizza, or summon an Uber ride using their voice. Alexa now supports 3,000 skills, or functions from third-party developers that add to its roster of abilities.

By comparison, Roku’s $49.99 streaming stick doesn’t include voice controls. Apple’s Siri, however, is present on that company’s latest Apple TV, offering playback controls and search functionality by voice, even with third-party apps like Netflix and Hulu. However, Apple’s $149 streaming box is much more expensive than Amazon’s new Fire Stick."
