Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick now support Voice Search for YouTube

6 posts in this topic

Mixdoctor    237

If the uncovered Silk browser for Fire TV is any indication, Amazon will enable voice input for Fire TV apps in the future. That might still be a long time away, so in the mean time, Amazon has made voice search possible for one of the most popular apps. With the new 5.2.4.1 software update, you can now use voice search to search YouTube on the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. 

Amazon has been slowly expanding the Fire TV’s universal search to cover more and more services over time, with the most recent notable additions being Netflix and HBO. Those, and all other services covered by the Fire TV’s universal search, consist of video catalogs that don’t change on a daily basis. YouTube’s video selection, which literally changes every second, can’t possibly be included in the Fire TV’s universal search implementation.

As a substitute for including YouTube content in the Fire TV‚Äôs voice search, Amazon has enabled the YouTube app to support the Fire TV‚Äôs ‚ÄúSearch In Apps‚ÄĚ functionality. When you perform a search on the Fire TV, whether it be a voice search or text input search, the results are broken down into various categories, like ‚ÄúMovies & TV‚ÄĚ or ‚ÄúApps & Games.‚ÄĚ The final category on the list is ‚ÄúSearch In Apps.‚ÄĚ

Selecting an app in the ‚ÄúSearch In Apps‚ÄĚ section simply passes your query to the built-in search function inside that specific app. Prior to the 5.2.4.1 software update, only the Amazon Music app supported this functionality. Amazon has now added the YouTube app, which they‚Äôve created themselves, as the second app to allow this search handoff ability.

To search YouTube using your voice, just perform a regular voice search using either an Alexa voice remote or the Fire TV Remote app. If there are matches to your search in a service included in the Fire TV‚Äôs universal search, those results will be listed first, with the YouTube app icon at the bottom. If there are no matches to your search in the universal catalog, you‚Äôll need to press the menu button to make the ‚ÄúSearch In Apps‚ÄĚ option appear.

Once you select the YouTube app under the ‚ÄúSearch In Apps‚ÄĚ section, the YouTube app will load directly to its search screen with your query results shown. You can perform another voice search at anytime, but you‚Äôll see the universal search results and will have to select the YouTube app at the bottom each time.

While having direct voice input of text fields within all apps is ideal, and hopefully coming to Fire TV devices in the future, this search handoff functionality is a nice substitute for the time being. Hopefully Amazon opens this ability up for developers to implement themselves so more apps can be included.

I am going to change my old MX tv box, have done some research on google, it seems that the Amazon's tv device and the Roku's tv decice, so I decided to select one from this two brands...I found a top tv boxes review one google, saying that the Amazon Fire TV got over 10,000 apps for the tv box but only 140 channels, and the Roku Ultra got over 3500 channels but not as much as app selections like the fire tv. anyone have experience on the both devices? which one is better?

Hi @Hulowala2 my 1st question for you is; are you just looking for a smart tv box or do you want a box to put Kodi on as well? If you want to use Kodi, then You don't want to buy Roku anything. The only way you can use Kodi with Roku is by mirror casting kodi from your cell phone, tablet or pc. Here's an article about it for you, (I knew this before but people have to be careful because even articles about Kodi on Roku have misleading titles) like this one: https://tunnel2tech.com/install-kodi-on-roku.html

I would recommend against Roku unless you want to stream it from another device. Let me know & I can share recommendations with you as well. Thanks! Sarah

@Hulowala2¬†then you don't want Roku. You can't put Kodi on Roku. I have 2 fire tv boxes, nvidia shield, t8-v4 box & probox2 air. I love them all. I've been playing with my probox2 air more lately & im really loving it! It's a little less than fire tv box, android, powerful, it has everything, no sideloading. I highly recommend it! ‚ėļÔłŹ Sarah

      STEP BY STEP TO CONFIGURE YOUR FIRE STICK FROM SCRATCH
      UPDATED 07/02/2017 This is a step by step guide with video links to help you all install your builds from scratch onto your Fire Stick ( A FRESH CLEAN START ), Even though this is written for The Fire Stick the principle and videos can also be referred to for installing on other devices. We have lots and lots of questions on here and I have to admit I keep typing the same instructions over and over again hence this post I am now doing so people can use it to link too in the relevant threads asking for help.
      We are literally starting for scratch so here we go.
      FIRSTLY most of the problems in the U.K. are down to ISP Blocking hence the very, very first thing to check is your ISP is not blocking you in any way, now you say well it did work last week but please remember ISP’s update numerous times a day so what may have worked last week may not work this week so you need to disable some settings to prevent this from happening. To stop your ISP blocking software please CLICK HERE This post tells you how to adjust your settings on Various ISP’s and trust me it resolves at least 60% of problems.
      Once you have checked your ISP settings you are ready to start and I must point out if you have not checked your ISP settings and you live in the U.K. then there is no point in carrying on so it's totally up to you 
      1. Start your Fire Stick and let it load up the home screen, you then need to go into Settings then click right to System and click on this and scroll down to you come to Reset To Factory Defaults and click on this to basically reset your stick for a fresh clean start.
      2. Once you have done that you are ready to start loading onto your Fire Stick, so set up your WiFi connection and Log Into Your Amazon Account then before you proceed any further you now need to go to Settings then right again to System and scroll down to Developer Options. Click on that and Turn On Apps From Unknown Sources.3. You
      are now ready for your first item to install which is ES File Explorer. You need to install this onto your stick by going here ( Click On The Link Below ) it says for UK but its for any Amazon Account all over the Globe OK. How to install ES File Explorer on the Amazon Fire Stick or Fire TV 4. Right once you got ES File Explorer you need Kodi, DO NOT install Kodi 17 as it's in beta stages and builds have not been updated for 17 but install 16.1 so it's KODI 16.1 Jarvis. I am hearing a lot of reports recently about ES not playing. Right OK I have had 100% success with this method and still using it today so click LINK CLICK HERE and work from ITEM 3 on the page you are taken to. and take a look and work through this guide as this is the way I do all my sticks etc. REMEMBER Amazon has now blocked APK downloads, so just download the zip file of Kodi 16.1 as this is what I do now as the zip file will atomically unzip when asked to install. 5. Register yourself to allow the use of The Beast Wizard if your not already registered by logging onto http://thebeast2.com/signup/register.php to register. (Click link in Item 6 for help to do this)
      PLEASE NOTE WHEN SETTING UP YOUR CREDENTIALS PASSWORDS MUST ONLY CONTAIN LETTERS AND NUMBERS AND NO CHARACTERS
      6. Once you done that run Kodi and as its a first run its also a Clean Install hence when you first run Kodi go to this next step and get The Beast Wizard by following very carefully this link http://thebeast1.com/signup/register.php and watch the video in full above the registration boxes.
      Don't forget this will install The Beast Wizard Only Now ok. When you highlight the Beast Wizard for the first time chick the far right button on your remote one with 3 lines on it and configure the Beast Wizard by putting in you Wizard Credentials that you did in item 5 email and password (the credentials you set up in Item 5), Not the Credentials you use to log into this forum unless you use the same credentials obviously . Once you done that Run it and choose The Build You Wish To Install and away you go. 
      If your stuck on inputting your Credentials into the Beast Wizard go back to item 6 and follow carefully 
      7. DON'T FORGET ONCE YOU INSTALLED THE BEAST AND IT SAYS CLICK TO RESTART DO NOT CLICK BUT PULL THE POWER FROM YOUR STICK COUNT TO 10 THEN REPOWER
      Now thats it it should all work for you if you follow these steps and videos without cutting corners or skipping any of the above, and as I have already said this is written for The Fire Stick but the principle is the same for most devices just follow the steps above and you should be up and running in no time at all.
      Good Luck and keep us posted in the relevant threads ( Not On Personal Message Please  )if you run into problems.
      NOW WE GOT KODI 17 and there seem to be big problems with it you also need to disable the automatic update function so see below for details and click on the title in the box.

      A Big HELLO to all our members on this marvelious World Wide Forum,
       
      We are all here for help and support and obviously news about our hobby and interests and the Staff and Members are all here to share our expertise and knowledge when our members have problems and we all try to help and get you all up and running as quickly as possible. 
       
      The main problem with this is some of our members are not helping themselves. Yes, we understand if you got a problem you would like speedy results and answers but time after time we see the same questions like ‚ÄúHelp pin wont work‚ÄĚ or ‚ÄúSpartan wizard keeps asking me to log on‚ÄĚ etc.
      In reply to questions like that we ask ‚Äúwhat are you trying to install in on?‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúwhen do you get this error?‚ÄĚ etc. Now you can obviously see that this is wasting time on your behalf and you are still stuck and having to reply with the relevant information, hence talking up more time to get you up and running when we want to get you running as soon as possible as thats what the forum is about.
       
      So members please think when posting problems to be solved and take a quick look through this checklist below as the more information you can give us the quicker we can try to resolve your problems and get you up and running.
       
      The very, very first thing to check is your ISP is not blocking you in any way, now you say well it did work last week but please remember ISP’s update numerous times a day so what may have worked last week may not work this week so you need to disable some settings to prevent this from happening. To stop your ISP blocking software please CLICK HERE  This post tells you how to adjust your settings on Various ISP’s and trust me it resolves at least 60% of problems. What are you trying to install? (Kodi, The Beast, Spartan Wizard etc ) What are you trying to install onto?  ( Device you are trying to update/get working ) Method of installing? ES File Explorer or File Manager etc. Let us know how far you are getting until you run into problems. The problem you are having and any error messages. Always try and give us a brief description and order of what you are doing until you get to the point where you are having your problem. Please do not post multiple posts on the same issue as it will get deleted and a warning will be issued NO troubleshooting in pm or by mail as it does not benefit others with the same issue   
      So a typical question ‚ÄúHelp I¬†can't¬†install the Beast¬†wizard !‚ÄĚ ( does not tell us a lot does it )¬†
       
      If it looks something like "Help I am trying to install The Beast wizard from The Beast Site on my Fire Stick using File Manager and I keep getting an error saying the link cannot be resolved".
       
      This straight away tells us what we need to know that you're using a Fire Stick and trying to install and download The Beast Wizard from one of our Beast sites using the file manager hence we can now help you straight away without asking you what are you installing on etc saving you a lot of time and frustration and getting you going a lot quicker.
       
      By the way my answer to the example problem above is item number 1 ( ISP Blocking ) as this can be caused by your ISP blocking software also make sure you type the link correctly 
       
      Anyway I hope this post explains that the more information you can give us the quicker the members and staff can get you up and running.
       
      If I have missed anything out or anybody thinks something should be added to this post please leave a comment by clicking HERE
       
      Thanks for reading
