Amazon’s Fire TV Cube is an all-in-one device for Amazon users

Amazon’s Fire TV Cube is an all-in-one device for Amazon users

As an introductory offer, Prime members can pre-order Fire TV Cube on June 7 and 8 for a special price of $89.99-a $30 savings.

And just a reminder, if you're thinking about buying the Fire TV Cube it's worth double checking that with an Amazon professional that it'll work with your current soundbar/speaker/receiver setup.

The big picture: Amazon's long-rumored Fire TV Cube marries two established product lines into a cube-shaped form factor. It even integrates with your cable TV box from leading providers such as Comcast, DISH and DIRECTV. The Fire TV Cube is able to communicate with all these devices - and control - because it has four IR blasters built into its four sides.

The Echo Look is certainly the most unique device in the wider Echo family, so it'll be interesting to see how it performs in the hotly contested smart home/speaker market. Additionally, any customers who purchase and register their Fire TV Cube by July 1, will also receive a $10 credit for Prime Video.

Amazon has launched yet another smart appliance.

President Trump calls off Philadelphia Eagles' White House visit over anthem dispute
The president's tweets come hours after he disinvited the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles from the White House . ESPN's Sal Paolantonio reported that the team learned about the cancellation via the president's statement .

Amazon's Alexa-enabled smart speakers are the most popular on the market, having moved "tens of millions" of units over the past year according to CEO Jeff Bezos. Amazon is also bundling a separate IR extender with the Cube, making it possible to reach devices hidden away in cabinets and such. Amazon's existing Fire TV streaming devices can be controlled by a remote that comes with a microphone.

Last month, a family in Portland Oregon discovered their Amazon Echo had recorded part of their private conversation and then sent to someone on their contact list. When Sandeep said "Alexa, show more", the large splash screen advertising the History channel's "SIX" show disappeared, to show more rows of content.

Both Home and Echo are continually listening for commands, though Google and Amazon say nothing gets passed back to them until the speakers hear a keyword - "OK, Google" for Home and "Alexa" for Echo. "And, it's just the beginning".

Users will need to have some gear in order to take advantage of a few different commands.

While the Fire TV Cube can be controlled completely by voice, it will still come with a remote control for times when you may not want to shout at your television.
