How to Use the Fire TV Cube as an Echo

Not only does the Fire TV Cube respond to all of the actions and smart routines that work on all Alexa-enabled devices, but it also offers some of the features once unique to the Echo Show.

1. Say "Alexa, show me the weather" to see a 7-day forecast.

2. Say "Alexa, show me nearby pizza restaurants" or any kind of eateries, to get recommendations from Yelp.

3. Say "Alexa, show me my daily briefing" to get the day's news.

4. Say "Alexa, play Jeopardy!" to get your own chance to answer in the form of a question.

5. Say "Alexa, show me nearby movies." to see what's playing near you today.

6. Say "Alexa, select 3" (or any option) to learn more about that movie.

7. Say "Alexa, show me showtimes" to see where it's playing.

8. Say "Select 3" to learn more about which showtimes are available at that theater.

    Mine will switch to cable, but will not actually change the channels with comcast box. Getting annoyed to say the least.

    Unfortunately, I did all of the above and it still will not change channels for me. Ugh. It switch to the right HDMI and have cable playing, but will not change channels.

    Kodi is just a player. It does not come with movies, or web sites where to play from. You provide it with your own library of movies stored locally, or over the network.

    For every other usage of Kodi there are plenty of websites available, but not here.

    p.p. Don't hijack a thread!!
