Discussing the launch of its voice assistant and smart speakers, Jorrit Van Der Meulen, vice president, Amazon Devices International, comments, "Tens of millions of customers around the world are already using Alexa, and today we're excited to introduce Alexa to our customers in France". These are features not found in Amazon's current Fire TV 4K Player. A whopping eight microphones enable Alexa to hear you "from across the room", while beamforming capabilities will make sure ambient noise, "reverberation, content now playing, and even competing speech" are suppressed for flawless voice command clarity.
The Cube connects to the TV via HDMI and supports both multi-directional IR and CEC, so you can control multiple HDMI-connected devices with the included remote.

The device is also compatible with set-top boxes from Comcast, DISH, and DirecTV. Amazon Prime members that pre-order the device on June 7 or June 8 will pay $89, giving them a $30 discount.
