Amazon has introduced a couple of new features for its Fire TV which includes Hindi support, the expansion of Alexa routines for users in India. Amazon Fire TV users can now give Alexa commands in Hindi. Users can also see the Hindi menu on Fire TV if they select the device language as Hindi.

Amazon is rolling out Hindi language support for Fire TV users starting today. “Customers in India can now converse with Alexa in Hindi on their Fire TV devices. The experience includes Hindi interactions for Alexa on Fire TV, local knowledge and information, hundreds of skills and more in Hindi. Customers who choose the Hindi as the device language will also see Fire TV lines and menus in Hindi. Support for Hindi language will be available starting today on all Fire TV devices in India, “Amazon said in a statement.

To increase the controls in Hindi, users can switch to Hindi via the Alexa voice remote by going to the Fire TV’s language settings by clicking Settings> Device Options> Device Language. First-time Fire TV users can select Hindi when setting up their device right away.

This new update would allow users to freely converse in Hindi with Alexa. Users can give a command in Hindi for music, knowledge, personality, smart home, timers and alarms, weather, news, local search and more.

Another feature that Amazon has added to the Fire TV is the Alexa routines. Alexa routines, as the name suggests, would make it easier for users to bundle their smart home features with Alexa. Users can set up routines using the Alexa app. For example, if users enter bedtime and give Alexa a command saying “Alexa, it’s time to go to bed,” the smart assistant will turn off all lights.

Similarly, you can tell Alexa that you are getting something to eat for you. Alexa will pause the content and turn on the smart lights. “Using the Alexa app, customers can set routines by selecting actions such as turning the TV on or off, opening a specific app, playing specific content and pausing or resuming content, as well as other actions on their smart and enabled home for Alexa devices, like turning on the light or changing the air conditioning temperature, “Amazon said in a statement.
