The Nebula Soundbar - Fire TV Edition is available for pre-order on Amazon.co.uk for £179.99 and will begin shipping on 21st October. And Grundig will offer Fire TV Edition sets in Germany and Austria, including the first OLED Fire TV set with hands-free Alexa controls.

The second-generation Fire TV Cube also supports Local Voice Control to quickly rattle off the most common voice commands.

Amazon's new Fire TV Cube. In the U.S., Toshiba will start selling a 65-inch Fire TV-Amazon's largest 4K HDR set yet for this market-at Best Buy. You only need to hook up the soundbar to your TV, and you'll be able to stream and watch content as if you had a stand-alone Fire TV.

The new Fire Cube TV will be available in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, and Japan. According to Amazon, Fire TV Cube owners use eight-times more voice commands to control their TV when compared to other Fire TV users. Some folks may not want to compromise on audio quality for the sake of stuffing in streaming video, and it's unclear whether people will understand the concept of a soundbar that effectively replaces their smart TV or streaming stick. And now, Amazon has jumped into the mix with its first Fire TV Edition Sound Bar with Anker Innovations.

In a nutshell, Amazon's latest products boost the number of Alexa compatible TV products on the market.

The other new products Amazon unveiled today, the full rundown of which is here, include the first OLED Fire TV Edition smart TV (in Germany and Austria), a Fire TV Edition smart TV with built-in far-field voice control, and Amazon's first-ever Fire TV Edition soundbar.
