What the latest Amazon Fire tablets can do

Unlike the Echo devices, but like Amazon's Fire TV media streamer line, Alexa on the Fire tablets is activated with a button press by default. On the latest Fire tablet models, you can have hands-free access to Alexa ("hey Alexa"), but you need to enable the feature in the device settings.

Once enabled, you can ask Alexa for the weather, sports scores, news and much, much more. Just like the Echo Show smart displays, the Fire tablets add a visual element to certain replies, with a week's worth of weather highlights appearing on screen, for instance.

What it doesn't do, that the Show does, is let you make video calls or check in on elderly relatives (although since the calling service hasn't even launched in the UK yet, that's arguably a moot point).

In fact, presumably Amazon won't roll out most of the core Show functionality to Fire tablets, because if they did, why would you bother buying a Show?

From what we've seen of it, the integration with general tablet activities is very slick, letting you dismiss Alexa, but then call it back via a pull-down menu, when you realise you've forgotten what it said about the weather, or what the tune stuck in your head is.

Alexa's music and news feeds can play in the background as you do other tablet-related stuff, and all the usual support for a wide range of smart home kit is present and correct, for your lightbulb-dimming and thermostat fiddling pleasure.

Pleasingly, Alexa is also available on previous generation Fires (as the 7-inch one used to be called), and the HD 8 and HD 10 (opens in new tab) tablets via a free software update.

While nobody is going to accuse Fire tablets of being at the cutting edge of processing power or beautiful design, they are more than adequate for practically all standard tablet tasks, easy to grip and manoeuvre, and dirt cheap at under £50 and under £80 respectively for the 7-inch and 8-inch models.

Although the screen resolutions are not changed from the older models, contrast has been boosted to make ebooks easier to read and video to ping a bit more.

They're also robust and colourful, qualities that come into their own on the Kids Editions, both of which are also regularly updated.
