Introducing Alexa Hands-Free
Last year Amazon brought Alexa, the brain behind Amazon Echo, to Fire
tablets making it even easier for you to enjoy endless entertainment by
simply pressing a button and asking. Now, with the new Fire HD 10, Alexa
is available hands-free—when connected to Wi-Fi, simply say the wake
word “Alexa” and ask Alexa to control video playback (play, pause,
rewind, and fast forward), launch an app, play your favorite song, or
read an audiobook aloud. You can also ask Alexa to answer questions,
read the news, get traffic and weather reports, set alarms and timers,
and more—Alexa provides voice responses paired with visual cards on your
Fire tablet’s display, and can even respond when your tablet screen is
on standby. Alexa offers access to over 15,000 skills so you can stream
music from Pandora, check your flight status with Expedia, or order a
pizza from Domino’s.
You can also use Alexa hands-free on the new Fire HD 10 to control a
range of smart home devices from SmartThings, Insteon, ecobee, Wink, and
more. Dim the lights or adjust the thermostat using just your voice.
Also, for the first time on a Fire tablet, you can ask Alexa to show you
what’s on your smart home security camera with compatible devices from
Nest, Ring, and Arlo—new feature coming soon. Because Alexa is
cloud-based, it’s always getting smarter; meaning even more Alexa
capabilities for Fire tablets will be available in the future.
Alexa hands-free will be available on the all-new Fire HD 10 via a free,
over-the-air software update. The update will begin rolling out to
customers starting October 11.
The all-new Fire HD 10 is available for pre-order beginning today with
32GB or 64GB of storage starting at $149.99 at www.amazon.com/firehd10.
Fire HD 10 now comes in three fun color options: Black, Marine Blue and
Punch Red, and starts shipping October 11.
Protective covers are also available for Fire HD 10 in Black, Marine
Blue, Punch Red, and Cobalt Purple, and can stand in both portrait and
landscape orientations—only $39.99.
