The new Fire TV Stick which comes with 4K support also has Alexa Voice integration, which allows users to quickly search content hands-free. It's the newest update to its best-selling Fire TV stick and, according to the company, 80 percent more powerful.

"We've listened to our customers and pushed to deliver the complete 4K solution they are looking for, all within a compact stick form factor", said Marc Whitten, vice president of Amazon Fire TV, in a statement.

Amazon has brought its latest 4K supported Amazon Fire TV Stick to the Indian market at a price of Rs 5,999.

Oculus Quest, Facebook's standalone VR headset, launches next spring for $399
We've heard a bit about Oculus' Project Santa Cruz over the past couple of years. At the very least, it offers a simpler, faster way to jump into gaming.

So the way this works is you trade in any Roku, Apple or Google streaming device and Amazon will give you up to $2.99 as an Amazon gift card. Last month, for instance, Roku unveiled new 4K devices starting at just $39.99 - $10 more if you want the voice remote. Just say ‘Find 4K movies. And it now has volume control buttons as well. The remote combines Bluetooth with infrared to control both the Fire TV Stick as well as other home entertainment devices, including your TV and cable box.

Fire TV Recast lets users watch, record and replay over-the-air TV programming on Fire TV, Echo Show, and on compatible Fire tablet, iOS and Android devices. As with older generations of the Fire TV Stick, you'll be able to stream content from all of your favorite streaming services.

The new Fire TV Stick 4K is powered by a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, which promises faster video streaming and quick loading. Audio isn't forgotten, and you now get full Dolby Atmos support. At the time, Amazon and Toshiba said that the extra buttons were added after owner feedback, though it seemed a little odd that they didn't then carry that over to Amazon's own Fire TV line-up. Both will begin shipping on October 31 in the United States and Canada.
