Alexa on Amazon’s Echo smart speakers is absolutely fantastic. Honestly, I don’t think I would ever want to live without it at this point. But Alexa on Amazon’s Fire TV remote is horrible. Alexa just can’t handle dictation well for some reason, and it makes entering things like searches, user names, and passwords a real pain in the butt. If you want to do away with all that nonsense, do what I did and get the iPazzPort Mini Backlit Keyboard with Universal Remote Buttons. It mounts on the back of your Fire TV remote with a nifty little case, and it will seriously be a game-changer for you.
