Amazon has worked recently to deliver Alexa capability for its Fire TV devices through a voice-controlled remote, but also through Alexa devices like the Echo and Dot.
A report from AFTVNews today suggests that Amazon will announce two new Fire TV devices this year and one of those will be a device that combines Fire TV (not the stick) and the Echo Dot. The result is a square device that sports Echo Dot buttons on top and includes far-field microphones.
A delivery date has yet to be announced, but Amazon is definitely cooking up something soon.
