Amazon has announced enhanced integration of Fire TV with Alexa-powered devices such as the Echo series and other Alexa-powered devices. This will allow you to view your Alexa device's reply on your Fire TV and more in the future.

Amazon's Fire TV devices themselves are themselves Alexa-enabled and can be used like a smart speaker or smart display using a dedicated remote control. It can also be paired with an Echo device to play content such as Prime Video via an Echo device.

In addition to these features, the new enhancements include the ability to ask your Echo device, for example, "Show me the weather," and it will display the week's weather forecast on the screen of the paired Fire TV. It's a great way to display responses to voice commands on an information-rich TV screen. Other displays include traffic reports, calendars, smart home camera feeds, and more.

It has always been possible to do something similar with the words "on your Fire TV," but this enhancement will simplify the controls and make the experience more like that of a large-screen smart display.

Note that Echo Show and Spot, which have their own screens, will not have the full functionality of the Fire TV integration available, as they will prioritize their own displays.
