Amazon plans to bring its Fire TV platform to in-car entertainment systems. At present, Amazon introduced that Fire TV Edition for Auto will seem in future BMW and Fiat Chrysler automobiles. It would include entry to Alexa, a touch screen interface, and offline playback capabilities. Content will be out there using the vehicle’s WiFi or LTE connection, a mobile hotspot, or a WAN-enabled device.
The transfer to in-car leisure comes simply three years after Amazon launched its first Fire TV Edition smart TVs at CES 2017. At present, Fireplace TV has greater than 40 million active users, and Amazon says it would quickly be even more straightforward for system makers to combine Fire TV into their merchandise.
Amazon also introduced that, later this year, “Fire TV Edition soundbars will provide new options including Dolby Atmos help, appropriate device control, HDMI switching, and far-field voice management, together with partner customizations.” These adjustments will make Fire TV soundbars more capable entertainment hubs.
We’ve already seen one Fire TV Edition soundbar from Anker, and starting at this time, the TCL Alto 8+ Soundbar-Fire TV Edition is out there within the US and Canada. Amazon says it is working with more manufacturers, including Polk Audio and Tonly, on more soundbar options.
