Amazon je Druga generacija Fire TV palico -, ki vam omogoča, da stream video in aplikacije na vašem TV - še isti zmagovalno formulo, vendar dodaja novo glasovno iskanje, Alexa pomočnik in preprostejše, bolj polirani izkušnje, zaradi česar je eden od najboljših instant pametnih televizorjih na voljo.

Izgleda, da je pomnilniški ključek USB, Samo s HDMI priključkom na enem koncu in microUSB vtičnico na strani. Nastavitev je izredno preprosta. Priključite ga neposredno na zadnji strani televizorja ali sprejemnika, ali uporabite priložen HDMI podaljšek, če ne povsem ne prilega zraven druge naprave, priključite vključeno microUSB kabel za napajalnik in ga priključite na palico.

Če ste kupili Fire TV Stick neposredno iz Amazon, potem ko ste jih dal v wifi geslo, podatki o računu bodo že nastavljena in pripravljena. A nekaj klikov z daljinskim Bluetooth in kratek in uporaben uvodnem video, ki teče skozi osnove glasovnim upravljanjem in ste pripravljeni iti.

Morate račun Amazon uporabljati Fire TV Stick, vendar ga ne potrebujemo predsednika naročnino. Namesto tega lahko kupite vsebino ali uporabite eno od mnogih TV, film ali glasbo streaming aplikacije na voljo na App Store Amazon, vključno Netflix, Vse UK prizemne radiodifuzije Kečap storitve in Spotify so.

Medtem ko boste verjetno že biti prijavljeni v svoj račun Amazon, boste še vedno morali vnesti imen in gesel za aplikacije tretjih oseb, kot so Netflix. Amazon Fire TV daljinski aplikacija za Android in iOS omogoča proces veliko lažje, tako da vam popolno pametnim telefonom ali tabličnim tipkovnico za vse tipkanjem, kar je precej manj dolgočasno, kot da se pomaknete za tipkovnico na zaslonu, z daljinskim upravljalnikom.

Uporaba je

Novi Fire TV Stick deluje kot vsak drug Amazon Fire TV proizvoda in večini drugih pretakanje naprav. Daljinski ima majhno smerno obroč za navigacijo meni, gumb nazaj, home gumb in gumb za možnosti, kakor tudi pavze-play, hitro naprej in nazaj tipke.

Nimate točko oddaljeni v vsakem posameznem smer, kot je Bluetooth ni infrardeče, in traja dve bateriji AAA, ki so vključene. To je enostavno, odziven in novi in ​​izboljšani uporabniški vmesnik je tako privlačen in enostaven za uporabo, z lepimi velikimi slikami medijev, aplikacije in možnosti menija.

Najbolj transformativno nova stvar je, da je novi daljinski prihaja z mikrofonom vgrajenim ki vam funkcionalnost z eno tipko Pritisni in govori. Držite gumb mic na vrhu daljinskem upravljalniku, da aktivirate Alexa in prositi za tisto, kar želite. Enako je doživetje, ki ga dobite od napravo Echo ali Echo Dot, s polno funkcionalnostjo Alexa, ampak boste tudi dobili, kar Amazon poziva "kartic", ki pop up na vašem TV skupaj z govornim odgovor.

Kartice niso interaktivni, ampak da na kratek vizualne različice govora, tako da, ko je Alexa ti, da ne bo deževalo, da je dan, ko si pokazala nekaj temperature in vremenske ikone.

Enostavno iskanje deluje zelo dobro. Če si želite ogledati The Good Wife, Preprosto držite gumb, say “Good Wife” and Alexa will take you to a page showing the Good Wife and a one-button push to watch it. Where there are multiple ways to view it, Alexa will always show you the one included in a subscription you might have before other ways to buy it.

The Good Wife is available on Netflix, but also available for purchase from Amazon. If you have a Netflix subscription logged in, hitting play will take you straight to the next unwatched episode in Netflix. To je hitro, easy to use and transformative if you know what you want to watch.

You can also search using an actor’s name, genre and many other different keywords, but I still find browsing through shows still easier if looking for inspiration, as Amazon or Netflix suggestions are normally better than I would have come up with on my own. The new Fire TV interface also allows Netflix, and soon other third-party apps, to suggest content you might be interested in directly within the home screen under their own carrousels, which is useful.

Voice control extends to playback options too, skipping minutes of video, pausing, playing and other functions within Amazon Video.

Smart home control

Full Alexa functionality also extends to smarthome control. Anything you might connect via the Alexa app on your smartphone you can command with the new Fire TV Stick. Hit the mic button, say “turn on the living room lights” and see any Philips Hue or other connected bulbs light up.

Amazon has struck a wide range of partnerships with various smarthome device manufacturers, including Samsung SmartThings, Philips Hue, Nest, Hive and many others, making it one of the most versatile smarthome voice assistants.

Pripombe

  • Jumping straight to a show in Netflix from Alexa uses the last logged in user in Netflix, which means you might end up playing through another family member’s viewer account
  • Voice control is neat, but pressing a button is still quicker
  • There are plenty of games and third-party apps to choose from, with Apple’s iTunes the biggest one missing
  • You can also cast video to the Fire TV Stick from a smartphone or tablet
  • Parental control options are available to limit purchases and content with pin override
  • The Fire TV Stick maxes out at 1080p, which means no UHD 4K support
  • It’s not quite as fast as the Fire TV box, but it is half the price (it is, vseeno, quite a lot faster than the last version of the Fire TV stick)

Cena

The new Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote costs £39.99 making it one of the best value smart TV streaming devices available, and £5 cheaper than the previous version with a voice-enabled remote.

Verdict

Stara Fire TV Stick je poceni in učinkovit, vendar je manjkalo za nohte. Novi Fire TV Stick meni, da je zmagovalno formulo in dodaja raven nohte in usposobljenosti, ki je skoraj nepremagljiv za 40 £.

Setting it up is easy. You have to have an Amazon account and are tied into the firm’s services, but third-party app support is excellent, with all the major UK TV streaming and catchup services bar Apple’s and Sky’s service.

The Alexa support is transformative, making the Stick much more than a basic TV streamer, but also doesn’t get in the way. You can still perform every streaming function without having to utter words, and while Alexa is very capable, the Fire TV Stick doesn’t try to hard to be more than it is – a very good smart TV device in a cheap and effective package.

Pros: simple to use, easy set up, compact, good remote, slick interface, wide UK catchup service support, Alexa integration

Cons: not quite as fast as the more expensive Fire TV box, no support for iTunes or Sky content, requires Amazon account, wifi only
