Alexa on the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick can now move the movie or TV show you’re watching forward or back any arbitrary amount you want. While watching a video you can hold down the microphone button on the voice remote or game controller and say “skip forward 5 minutes,” and the video will jump ahead seamlessly. You can also “rewind 30 seconds,” if say you didn’t hear something that was just said. Additionally, if you’re watching a TV series, you can say “next” to skip the current episode and start playing the next one. Oddly enough, saying “previous” or “back” to go to the previous episode is not supported.
