Made me like smart speakers again

from The Next Web

The Cube is also the best value among Fire TV and Amazon smart speaker devices. If you’re buying an Amazon smart speaker or streaming device any time soon, it should be this one.

Could one day replace the remote

from TechRadar

The Amazon Fire TV Cube is an intrepid experiment for the future of home entertainment. It nearly finds a way to replace the remote with the sound of your voice, but Alexa’s limitations in natural language understanding – and sometimes basic playback controls – are enough to prevent the Fire TV Cube from killing the remote for good.

Yelling at the TV finally has a purpose

from ZDNet

It's hard to think of a streaming box that checks all the boxes like the Fire TV Cube does. It's a personal assistant, provides voice control for home automation, controls cable boxes and soundboards, has access to Amazon's Fire TV ecosystem, and it costs just $119.

A great all-in-one device

from CordCutters

The Amazon Fire TV Cube is a devilishly simple product. It's part Amazon Fire TV — a 4K-capable streaming video device. And it's part Amazon Echo Dot — with Amazon Alexa and microphones and speakers, so it can work independently of (and control) your television and just about anything else connected to it.

Isn't that much better than older models

from Apple Insider

Amazon has continued its trend of "good enough" devices at a relatively low cost, with little panache or flair again in the Amazon Fire TV Cube. If that's okay, and you have no need for iTunes streaming at all, and don't care about the UI jank, it's a bit better at 4 out of 5.

Alexa, hide the remote

from SlashGear

No, I can’t promise that you’ll never pick up a remote control again. Yet with just about all major set-top boxes pushing some sort of voice control, so far Alexa on the Amazon Fire TV Cube seems the most successful at delivering everyday functionality without frustration. Alexa, take a bow.

Alexa hasn't killed remotes just yet

from Mashable

 Amazon's Fire TV Cube is a good glimpse at how Alexa can be used to control your home entertainment system, but it's in need of a lot of polish.

Alexa is a pretty crappy TV remote, for now

from Gizmodo

The Cube will set you up for the voice-controlled future we’ve been promised. The bright side is that the device’s slow software can probably be improved with a software update, and as Amazon loves to say, Alexa is always getting better. So the Fire TV Cube might get better soon, too.

Alexa is sluggish and buggy in the context of TV control

from Wired

The Fire TV Cube is an oddball in the mix. It’s a bet on our voice-filled future, but in its initial form, the stuff beyond basic commands gets lost in translation.

Alexa turns on your TV, and it feels like magic

from Cnet

The Amazon Fire TV Cube's well-designed voice controls make it a superb alternative to a standard universal remote, especially for simpler systems.
