For Fire tablets, Amazon is rolling out a new update that transforms them into a control center for your smart house.
Amazon makes a lot of smart home gadgets, from smart speakers to smart lights, cameras, thermostats, switches, and connectors, so what are you using to power these gadgets? Amazon played on a voice, but sometimes the app on a device is more convenient.
The following Amazon Fire tablets will get the new update, bringing smart home controls to the device:
- Amazon Fire 7 (2019)
- Amazon Fire HD 8 (2018)
- Amazon Fire HD 8 (2020)
- Amazon Fire HD 10 (2019)
The Smart Home button can be found on the left corner of the navigation bar, and is perfect for those times where touch might be more convenient, faster, or more private than voice.
The Smart Home button will be accessible from any screen, including the lock screen, so you can easily control your compatible Alexa-enabled smart home products without having to close apps you are using.
