As per a report by media, the Amazon Alexa-supported earbuds are supposed to come in the H2 of 2019. Design-wise the earbuds are claimed to appear akin to Apple’s AirPods. On the other hand, it is claimed that engineers are stated to be operating on an enhanced audio quality. Consumers might have to say “Alexa” to turn on the assistant.

On a related note, with its newest upgrade, Amazon has conveyed a blast from the past to its Fire TV Stick 4K. The $50 streaming device now shows support for Miracast, allowing you mirror programs to supported tablets, smartphones, and PCs as if they were connected displays, as per media. Amazon had dropped support for Miracast on the Fire TV 3 with Fire OS 6, but has now re-launched it with new 4K device.

To employ it, from the settings or shortcut menus you can turn on display mirroring. Your device will require supporting Miracast, which has majorly fallen out of employment and was in fact dropped with Android 9 Pie by Google. That is because there are not likely too many applications that do not allow you to use an app to see shows. On the other hand, Miracast is still majorly accessible on Windows machines.
