Amazon is working constantly to elevate overall user experience and the way users interact with Alexa. Amazon has now started to roll out a new feature to its Fire TV Cube, which enables its users to control the Fire TV apps or navigate around third-party apps like Cartoon Network, Netflix etc., with voice controls.

This newly introduced feature will be really helpful when you wouldn’t be feeling like pressing buttons or when the remote goes missing. At times like these, you’ll be able to voice command Alexa to do certain tasks that emulate the buttons on a remote.
