    In a power-packed event, the Amazon threw many surprises by announcing the redesigning of Fire TV experience. As a part of it, the company launched Fire TV stick and a lower-cost Fire TV Stick Lite.

    Fire TV now gets video calling support. Through Zoom one can have a video chat over the Fire TV. By enabling video chat, Amazon has developed Fire TV as a communication device. Just by calling Alexa, the user can have 2-way video calling experience with Fire TV.

    Fire TV Stick with 4K and Dolby Atmos Support:

    Coming back to the Fire TV Stick, it is one of Amazon’s best-sellers. That’s the reason, Amazon has upgraded its processor to support 4K and Dolby Atmos functionality.

    The new Fire TV Stick has got 50% more faster quad-core CPU and GPU. Apart from the upgraded processor, Fire TV Stick has got new dual-band and dual-antenna for stable connectivity.

    Fire TV Stick Lite Costs $30:

    On the other hand, the Fire TV Stick Lite now comes with the Alexa Voice Remote Lite. There are minor differences as it retains most of the functions. The omission of volume and mute buttons (to control AV and TV) makes it $10 cheaper.

    In short, the Fire TV Stick 4K model costs $50 whereas the standard Fire TV Stick costs $40. The Lite version is priced at $30.

    As a BIG surprise, Amazon launched its own cloud gaming service titled Luna. Though it has got many similarities from Google Stadia, it’s still not open to everyone. Currently, it can be accessed only through invitation and priced at $6 per month.

    If its availability is limited in the US then it’s a long road for an Indian launch.
