Unlike the Google Chromecast, the Fire TV Stick comes with a remote. It also offers a selection of games that are already available on the Fire TV. The new Stick will also work with a free app for Android and iOS devices.
Amazon says that the Fire TV Stick has “4x the storage and 2x the memory of Chromecast,” with a duel-core processor and 1GB of built-in memory. Google’s product ships with a one-core processor and 512MB of built-in memory.
Amazon’s Fire TV Stick is available now for preorder on Amazon’s website. Amazon Prime members will receive a $20 discount for the next 48 hours, which brings the device’s cost to just $19.
A $29.99 voice activated Fire TV Stick remote is also available.
