Amazon launches new Fire TV Stick remote with buttons for Netflix, Prime Video
The new Fire TV Stick remote will be available with the latest Fire TV Stick (3rd gen).
Amazon has launched a new Fire TV Stick remote with more dedicated buttons for OTT apps. The new Fire TV Stick remote will ship with the latest 3rd gen Fire TV Stick, and it can now be pre-ordered from Amazon India.
The new Fire TV Stick remote looks similar to the previous model in terms of design. But this time Amazon has added coloured buttons representing the different apps and features. Replacing the microphone button is the Alexa button which is in the app’s blue colour. Down below you’ll see four buttons for Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Amazon Music and apps. This is for the Indian version of the Fire TV Stick remote.
In other markets like the US, the new Fire TV Stick remote has dedicated buttons for Disney+ and Hulu. Disney+ is available as Disney+ Hotstar in India, while Hulu hasn’t been launched here. In Australia, the apps button is replaced with Disney+ while Amazon Music stays the same.
Amazon is bundling the new remote with the 3rd gen Fire TV Stick which is the latest in the series. The previous models will ship with the older remote. But the new remote can be used with the 2nd Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Stick 4K and Fire TV Stick Lite as well.
The Fire TV Stick (3rd Gen) is priced at ₹3,999, and it can be pre-ordered now on Amazon India. The device will go on sale on April 21 according to the e-commerce site. The latest Fire TV Stick comes with support for full HD content, Dolby Atmos
