In terms of specifications, the TV stick comes with a quad-core processor, MIMO WiFi(802.11ac) and supports 1080p FHD streaming. Currently its the only streaming media stick with a voice remote, Fire TV Stick makes it easy to search Amazon Video content using just your voice and offers spoken language support for Indian customers in Hindi and English. Amazon also announced the release of three new titles on Prime Video, exclusively for Prime members and available on Fire TV Stick – Baahubali, Suicide Squad, and stand-up comedy special by Kenny Sebastian.
