As seen in the previous leak, the new Fire TV Stick Lite is an affordable version of the Fire TV Stick which is also capable of streaming in Full-HD resolution. It features HDR support and comes with Alexa Voice Remote Lite, a new remote that allows you to use voice to find, launch, and control content. The company has, after four years, updated its Fire TV stick, along with a fresh redesign of the Fire TV OS. Amazon says it is 50% more powerful than the previous generation but it still only supports 1080p streaming.
The new Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Stick Lite are available for pre-order starting today on Amazon.com for $39.99 and $29.99, respectively. The new Fire TV Stick devices will go one sale in India on October 15 and are already up for pre-orders.
The new Fire TV Stick is priced at $40 and begins shipping in select countries next week. The Main Menu is at the center of your screen and makes it easy to find what you're looking for.
As well as new streaming kit, Amazon also revealed a redesign Fire TV interface that will be available on all of its new device and will roll-out to some of the older hardware in due course. It will now offer a personalised experience for up to six family members by recommending them content based on their viewing history, watch lists, preferred settings, and more. While there are plenty of smart displays on the market these days, Amazon's Echo Show is quite different, using audio beamforming and computer vision technology to identify your location so that the display can rotate to face you when you activate Alexa.
The biggest addition to the Fire TV experience comes in the form of its video calling capability. Of course, it includes Alexa for voice control, too. The streaming profiles will ensure that your personalized recommendations don't interfere with those of other users.

The world's largest online retailer has worked for years to popularize speakers, televisions and other devices that customers activate through speech.
A Guard Plus feature, priced at $4.99 per month, allows Alexa devices to listen for sounds like footfalls or doors opening and closing and it can play fake sounds like a dog barking to scare off intruders. There's also a feature called Traffic Stop: If you're pulled over while driving, say, "Alexa, I'm being pulled over", and your Ring Car Cam will automatically start recording and store footage from the stop securely.
