Alexa Routines now let you include Fire TV commands as well

Alexa Routines have been around for years, but they’ve been getting some nice upgrades in recent months. While they can already integrate a whole bunch of supported smart home devices from various brands, Amazon’s own Fire TV dongles have surprisingly been missing from the equation. Amazon is finally doing something about that by bringing Fire TV integration to Alexa Routines.

Amazon's ancient 1080p Fire TV Stick might finally get an upgrade

Amazon's 4K Fire TV stick is a decent option for a self-contained 4K media streaming device, but the company's cheapest 1080p model is... not good.

Official Apple TV app makes its way to some Amazon Fire TV Sticks

Official Apple TV app makes its way to some Amazon Fire TV Sticks

Where Apple – that other tech giant that doesn't make the world's most popular operating system – was once able to lock users into its walled garden of premium-priced hardware, the tech industry has recently been shifting further from what devices are (processors, cameras, and displays) and more toward what they can do through software. Apple's recent pivot to monthly subscription services has had a notable impact on the Cupertino company's business model, forcing it out of its hardware ecosystem to capitalize on the wider world of devices. We saw this a few years ago when Apple Music came to Android in 2015, and now we're seeing it again with the official Apple TV app landing on some Amazon Fire TV devices.

YouTube TV arrives on Amazon Fire TV devices

YouTube TV arrives on Amazon Fire TV devices

We're not far from the days when Amazon and Google were feuding over how YouTube was shown on Echo Show displays and not selling Chromecasts on the Amazon marketplace — in the course of the saga, both companies pulled services from their counterpart's platform. However, the pair came to terms earlier this year with an agreement that resulted in YouTube services coming back to Fire TV devices in July. Now, Amazon has taken one step further forward by welcoming YouTube TV into the fold.
