Programmable buttons, instant access to Alexa, and more.
After a long wait, the Alexa Voice Remote Pro is here to enhance the capabilities of your Fire TV. This remote gives you instant access to Alexa and offers two programmable buttons that can trigger routines or open apps. Surprisingly, the Alexa Voice Remote Pro is only $35.
The Alexa Voice Remote Pro was first revealed during Amazon’s hardware event in September 2022. It is compatible with most Fire TV devices, including third-party smart TVs running Amazon’s Fire interface.
Like the standard Alexa Voice Remote, the new Voice Remote Pro lets you control your TV and smart home devices using voice commands. There’s also a volume rocker and a set of shortcut buttons for popular streaming apps.
But the Voice Remote Pro adds a ton of features, including controls for your TV (rather than just your streaming device). It has backlit buttons, a shortcut to open your Fire TV’s Bluetooth menu, and a handy “find my remote” feature.
Most notably, the Voice Remote Pro includes two programmable buttons. You can turn these buttons into shortcuts for streaming apps or use them to trigger Alexa Routines (a great idea for smart lighting home theaters).
You can order the Alexa Voice Remote Pro today for $35. It works with most Fire TV devices, although some older Fire TV devices are incompatible. You can find full compatibility notes on the Amazon listing.
