Let's face it, you probably lost your little Fire TV remote at some point. And do not worry, I'm not here to judge. If you can not find the remote or your hands are too busy to turn on your favorite movie, your Amazon Echo ($ 70 on Amazon) can save the day.

Amazon Digital Assistant, Alexa, lets you play movies and TV shows from Amazon Prime Video, Hulu and more with your Fire TV. You can also pause, pause, rewind, and play the next episode with voice commands.

Before connecting your Amazon Echo device and Fire TV, make sure they're both connected to the same Amazon account.
