Amazon and Alexa want to take over our homes! The recent unveiling of an impressive lineup of new Amazon Echo devices and the $60 4K/HDR capable Fire TV dongle proves just that - the online shopping giant is dead serious about bringing Alexa to each nook and cranny of our humble (but increasingly smarter) abodes.
What Amazon is trying to bring with its master blueprint it seems is not just a bunch of distinct gadgets thinly connected by a hub or a common Wi-Fi access point. Instead, it's trying to get us to invite to our homes an entire family of practical smart appliances that will work seamlessly with each other.
And all this with Alexa as the ringleader, of course.
And boy oh boy, the company is surely making it so easy for us to buy into this whole vision of the Amazon household. With all the awesome Echo and Fire TV deals it regularly cooks up, it's understandably hard to resist.
If you're currently in the market for a great video streaming gadget, well, the new Fire TV and Echo Dot bundles are too good to pass up.
Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote + Echo Dot Bundle
Amazon is currently selling a Fire TV Stick/Echo Dot bundle that's only $59.99!
Hmm, how's that a good deal, you may ask. Well, a Fire TV Stick on its own is $39.99 and an Echo Dot is $49.99. With a little math magic, that totals to $89.98.
That means you will save around $30 with the bundle.
Why would you want to get a Fire TV Stick with an Echo Dot? With a recent update, you can now pair an Echo Dot with a Fire TV streaming gadget and control it remotely with your voice.
You can search for and control playback for movies and TV shows from streaming services like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, or Hulu just by asking Alexa. You can even open your other Fire TV apps with just your voice.
You can utter commands like "Alexa, show me action movies","Alexa, play Transparent," "Alexa, play", "Alexa, rewind" and your Fire TV will comply. It's like having a futuristic video butler.

All-New Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD + Echo Dot Bundle
Now here's an even better deal.
One of the new products that Amazon introduced was the all-new 4K/HDR capable Fire TV HDMI dongle. At $69.99, it is hailed as the most affordable 4K and HDR capable streaming device in the market right now.
Now, with this new bundle, its price will even be harder to beat. For just $79.99, you can get the Alexa-powered Echo Dot with it too!
Yep, crazy as it sounds, for a mere $10 more, you can pair your new 4K Fire TV dongle with an Echo Dot that regularly sells for $49.99. That's a fantastic $40 worth of savings!
Aside from 4K and HDR compatibility, the all-new Fire TV dongle can do whatever the Fire TV Stick can do but with its more powerful processor (about 40 percent faster), everything will be smoother and faster.
Again, pairing the 4K Fire TV dongle with an Amazon Echo or an Echo Dot will give you handsfree Alexa-powered voice control. If you're shopping around for a 4K streaming gadget, this bundle is definitely the one to get.

Komando Bluetooth speaker for the Echo Dot
By the way, although the Echo Dot has its own mini-speaker that's decent enough for Alexa's responses, it's a bit underpowered for music.
The good news is that you can either connect the Echo Dot to an external speaker via a 3.5mm headphone jack or better yet, connect it wirelessly to a Bluetooth speaker.
The Komando Shop's popular Komando Connect Bluetooth Speaker can be the perfect companion for your Echo Dot with its amazing, crystal-clear sound and easy pairing process.
You can also easily connect your phone wirelessly and stream your radio apps such as Spotify or Pandora, music, podcasts, audio books, phone calls and more.
