The magic of the (new) Alexa voice remote

Since the day it hit the market one of the aspects of the Amazon Fire Stick that set it apart was its top shelf remote. In an era where Chromecast launched with no remote and an attitude about it, Fire Stick gave everyone a great remote.

(Here’s our complete guide on how to use Alexa, which includes Alexa’s Flash Briefings for news updates as well as how to manage your smart home products, calendar, and to-do lists.)

Previous Fire remotes were nothing to scoff at. They offered bluetooth support, Alexa voice search, could control your TV volume, etc. You could pull up a show by saying “play Scrubs.” Yet somehow the new version improves on what was already basically perfect.

How? By adding a smart channel guide button and quick select app buttons.

Smart Channel Guide Button

The biggest of these changes is the smart channel guide, which works like a streaming version of the cable guide button. With the press of a button your Fire TV will pull up a handy guide that aggregates all the live content currently streaming on your device.

Not just paid live Sling TV, YouTube TV, or Philo. This bad boy also pulls up your favorite live channels from free services like Tubi, Pluto TV, or IMDB TV. This feature has technically been available on Fire TV Sticks since 2020, but lets be real. Having the guide button on your remote means you’ll actually use the feature.

Quick Select App Buttons

Now, lets talk about quick select app buttons. How much mileage you’ll get out of this feature will wildly depend on personal preference. Any Roku owner whose remote has a PS Vue app button on it will tell you how annoying they can be.

Personally, we love these buttons. You can’t pick which apps are on your remote, you can’t reprogram the buttons. To be honest, you’ve just got to pray the services on your remote don’t go under. However, their inclusion here are important for streaming.

First they drive home a sense of common design that takes the stress out of picking up a remote at a stranger or your in-laws house. Every streaming device should largely follow the same pattern, and this brings Amazon Fire Stick’s remote into the same design space as Roku.
