Fire TV now supports announcements via Alexa

The most convenient way to project your voice throughout your entire household is undoubtedly through multiple Alexa devices.

As if you couldn’t get any more annoying, you can now command Alexa to display notifications through Fire TV.  The notification that you send will pause whatever’s playing, resuming only once the announcement’s complete.

Now, you don’t have to go to such great lengths to get your point across.  That is until they figure out how to disable the announcements…

Likewise, you can record announcements from the Fire TV’s Alexa voice remote to broadcast through other Alexa devices.

Another notable improvement is the return of the YouTube app to Fire TV devices, after almost a year and a half.  This applies to the original Fire TV Stick, Fire TV and second- and third-generation Fire TV devices.

You can order the Fire TV from Amazon, though its stock currently appears to be limited.
