The picture above exhibits what the brand new interface will seem like within the USA, we don’t have mockups for Australia but.
We additionally don’t have any particular date for when the replace will arrive however we’re guessing perhaps ahead of later as a result of Amazon Australia is already selling the brand new function on it’s web site saying:
After we launched Echo Present 15, our imaginative and prescient was to ship a tool that may be like a kitchen TV—solely a lot smarter. A majority of households already use Echo Present 15 to look at movies, and shortly, we’re providing Fireplace TV on Echo Present 15.
With this free replace, current Echo Present 15 clients throughout Australia will be capable of entry native Fireplace TV content material. For instance, this may allow you to search out and watch over 200,000 films and TV episodes from suppliers like Netflix, Prime Video, and extra.
