Alexa Sleep Timer
Thanks to Jill who comment on last week's episode about having Alexa read to your (or play Audible books) you can set a sleep timer.
You talked about how the books on Audible keep reading after you sleep. There is a command of “Set sleep timer for x minutes” and it will stop. If you are still up and then you can set it again after you tell her to read. `
You can tell her to set a timer for a certain time. You can have multiple timers, and if you need to cancel which one, she is smart enough to ask which one.

Using Amazon Fire TV with Alexa
With Alexa the Fire TV is cool. But if you want to search for anything you are using the remote to navigate to a letter and choose one letter at a time. Picture trying to text on a flip phone five years ago. So when I tried Asking Alexa to find John Cusack, she found him on every platform I had (and some I didn't) it was super fast, and super easy. In some cases I was able to add those item to playlists.
Fire TV Stick vs Fire TV
The Fire Stick streams at 1080 and is wi-fi only. The Fire TV goes up to 4K, and if you wanted to, it has an Ethernet port to hard wire it. It also has an SD card for for storing more information (especially for games – there is even a gaming version). No matter what version of Amazon Fire you get, I would highly recommend you get it with it Alexa enabled.
