Do you own a Fire TV? The smart TV device would benefit from a better remote with a remote finder, TV controls, wireless headphone support, and backlit buttons. There’s good news: Amazon’s Alexa Voice Remote Pro is on sale right now for a limited time at a new all-time low price.
Maybe the best feature of this new remote is the fact that it comes with programmable buttons. With these buttons, you can create shortcuts to your favorite channels, apps, or any Alexa command.
If you lose your remote, just ask Alexa to find it, and Alexa will have your remote play a sound to help you locate it.
Right now, the Fire TV Pro Remote is on sale for $27.99, down from the list price of $34.99 for a limited time.
