Did you know you can use your Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice for more than binge watching on your favorite show? Right now I am loving that I can watch some of my favorite 90’s television series like Hanging With Mister Cooper and Family Matters. Gone are the days of passing your phone or tablet around to show family and friends your favorite pictures. Now you can see those photos and play a slideshow easily by just asking Alexa.
How Does It All Work?
First you need an Amazon Fire TV Stick. I love how easy it is to set up. I plugged it into one the HDMI ports on the side of my television. I put the included batteries into the remote and paired it with the Amazon Fire TV Stick. Then I added my WiFi information. If you get it from somewhere other Amazon or as a gift you will have to register it with your Amazon information. It does not take long to set up at all. I really like how it shows a short video of how to get the most out of your Amazon Fire TV Stick and the Alexa Voice Remote while it sets up.
You can use the Alexa Voice Remote to search for movies and t.v. shows, play music and see your photos with Prime Photos. Simply hold down the microphone button, then say a command, like “Show my photos.” You can even specify by date, or by the name of an album you created in your Prime Photos account.
Prime Photos Voice Launch On Fire TV
Amazon customers can view and search for their photos and photo albums with the Alexa Voice Remote and the Prime Photos app on their Amazon Fire TV (limited to US Amazon customers). Prime members can also search for people, places, and things, with phrases like, “show photos of dogs,” “show photos of Wyoming,” or “show photos of Jane.”
This is a great addition to what you can already do with Prime Photos on your Amazon Fire TV. Check out more ways to use the Prime Photos Fire TV app , hint: you can even change your screensaver. If that wasn’t enough, Prime members get unlimited photo storage, as well as 5 GB digital storage for other files and videos. Non-Prime members, get 5 GB free digital storage for files, videos, and photos. Now, you can relax on your living room couch and flip through your photos and personal videos on the biggest screen in your home using your Alexa Voice Remote.
I have already been putting it to good use. I simply say show my photos from June 12, 2017 and all the pictures from our first family trip to Disney World are right there for everyone to see. I love not having to search through thousands of pictures for the ones I want to look at. Using the Alexa Voice Remote makes it so easy.
Prime Photos helps keep your photos right at your fingertips, wherever you are. Keep your photos safe while you free up space on your devices when you save your photos online with the free app . This has been very handy for me. I have it set to automatically save every picture I take or upload. I never have to worry about accidentally deleting an important picture. Plus how can you not love unlimited photo storage?
Like Amazon Fire TV, the Echo Show can showcase all the photos in your Prime Photos account, with voice commands like, “Alexa, show my photos.” In fact, all the same commands work with Echo Show – just add “Alexa” to the beginning of each one.
