Last November PlayStation Vue added Alexa support for the Fire TV. Now Sony is adding the ability to control your PlayStation Vue through your echo device.
Here is an image greeting Fire TV owners when they launch PlayStation Vue today:
Now you can tell Alexa powered echo device to “Play”, “Pause”, “Rewind”, “Fast Forward”, and more. You can also ask PlayStation Vue to jump to a channel just by asking, for example, you could say “switch channel to ESPN” or “tune to ESPN”.
Now, this seems to be a new update as well Sony is advertising the ability as new. To have access to this feature you need to link your echo device to your Fire TV. From there you can control your Fire TV and PlayStation Vue without the need for a remote.
- Open the Alexa app on your phone or tablet.
- Go to the menu and select Music, Video, & Books.
- Select Fire TV.
- Follow the on-screen instructions.
- Select Link Devices to confirm your selection.
