As its name suggests, the Amazon Fire TV Cube takes the form of a… cube. It offers dimensions of 86.1 x 86.1 x 76.9 mm and is only available in black. We notice on the top the four usual buttons of the Echo speakers, to mute the microphones, increase / decrease the volume and manually launch the Alexa assistant. If you do this last action with your voice, a strip lights up blue.
Behind the box, we note the presence of four ports: micro USB, infrared, HDMI 2.0 (for 4K at 60 images per second) and power. This offers some interesting possibilities, such as connecting the box in Ethernet (RJ45) via the adapter supplied for a better connection, even if the Fire TV Cube is Wi-Fi 5 compatible, or even using the IR receiver (also supplied). to control your entire system, from your TV to Blu-Ray player to your sound bar for example.
The Fire OS interface – based on Android TV – is obviously there, with access to all Amazon services such as Prime Video, Amazon Music and others. These are much more highlighted, even if it is obviously possible to access third-party applications such as Netflix, Disney +, YouTube, Spotify or Molotov TV via the Amazon App Store. There are, however, a few absent, such as MyCanal, ADN, Téléfoot and Salto. That being said, the interface is very fluid and video performance is honorable with support for HDR (Dolby Vision, HDR 10, HDR10 + and HLG) and Dolby Atmos. A cast function is also available to stream content from a smartphone or tablet.
The box also acts as a classic connected speaker and Alexa will hear you wherever you are in the room thanks to its 8 microphones. In addition, the 6-core ARM chip with 2 GB of RAM built into the Fire TV Cube takes care of a good part of the analysis calculations to speed up Alexa’s response time and responsiveness is clearly one of its strengths. However, the speakers below aren’t amazing, where the sound experience is more or less similar to that of an Echo Dot.
