Voice search that actually works
Know what you want to watch? Amazon Fire TV’s remote has a built-in mic so you can instantly search TV shows, movies, actors, directors, and genres using just your voice—no more typing with your remote to find what you want. We’re confident Amazon Fire TV’s voice search is the best you’ve ever used. You have to try it to believe it.
