If you’ve already splurged and bought a FireTV, you’ve probably noticed one pretty annoying thing: the much-touted voice search feature only shows Amazon content. That makes it far less helpful than it could be. Thankfully, Amazon realizes this and announced today that it will be working with Hulu, Crackle, and Showtime to bring voice search features to their respective apps. That’s fantastic news.
For those who may not be familiar with FireTV’s voice search option, it’s pretty simple: hit the mic button and speak into the remote.
