Fire TV is Amazon's most recent venture into media streaming that offers consumers the ability to view their favorite movies and TV shows at home, and now the software is embedded with voice recognition technology allowing for a much more streamlined viewing experience. Viewers can control the software and search process using voice commands as well as add the feature to their connected home for further command simplicity.

The Fire TV service now uses an extension known as the Echo Speaker that allows consumers to voice commands to the streaming service. This allows viewers to speak out the types of searches they'd otherwise input and browse through, making the experience much faster, simpler and less likely to glitch due to tech technicalities.
