Consumers will get a bundled remote with a D-pad along with the Fire TV Stick 4K Max which can be used to watch content, control playback, and manage other smart home devices.
The remote also features four preset buttons that can help users get to frequent apps quickly. The Fire TV Stick 4K Max comes with support for Wi-Fi 6 networks. Additionally, the streaming stick comes bundled with a voice remote powered by Amazon Alexa.
