Over the past year we invited customers to use Echo Look and give us feedback, which led to the launch of many new features-we're now excited to make the device available to all customers, with even more fashionable features and functionality to come that will help customers look their best every day. And as expected, it's a hybrid between a Fire TV and an Amazon Echo. Plus, since it's a streaming device, it can stream content from stuff like Prime Video and Netflix and still give you access to all of Alexa's skills.

You can pre-order the Fire TV Cube today for $119, and it'll include an IR extender cable and Ethernet adapter. This is a better deal on the Echo Show than Amazon offered on Prime Day previous year. As is the case with most Amazon hardware products these days, Alexa is baked into the Fire TV Cube which also offers the same far-field voice recognition that Amazon's Echo devices do.

Amazon says the Fire TV Cube is essentially a hands-free device that can stream 4K Ultra HD video. You can enjoy Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu, ESPN, Showtime, Starz, and more like you normally would in high resolution. All you have to do is ask. Amazon has tried to reduce the call-and-response aspect of the device, so you won't always hear Alexa telling you she's changed the channel or dimmed the lights or cued up the next item in your playlist. This enables users to do things like switching between TV boxes and consoles, searching for shows and controlling the volume.

The Fire TV Cube is a 4K UHD streaming media player that features Alexa. The new device can also do typical Alexa tasks, such as playing "Jeopardy!" or fetching the weather, even when the TV is off.

"We believe voice makes it easier for customers to control their entertainment systems and watch the TV and movies they care about", said Marc Whitten, Vice President of Fire TV.

Leaked ahead of its official launch, the Fire TV Cube is a small, cubed set-top-box that combines the full Fire TV streaming experience and an Amazon Echo. Yes, the Fire TV Cube also doubles up as a universal remote, sweet! You can also purchase the Cube with a bundled Amazon Cloud Cam for $199.98. The company says cable boxes from providers such as Comcast, Dish, and DirecTV are all supported.
