What is the signature of that device? Is that AFTT (from specs it loos like that - Gen 2)? An update to "Identify Amazon Devices by Feature" and "Check for the Build Model" sections would be nice.

Is there a page with a list of countries that it _is_ available now, and what exactly "soon" (e.g., in case of Brazil and Mexico, assuming more from that 100 countries list) means. Is that approximately a week, a month, or a year?

Will the existing apps be automatically supported on that device, or we need to resubmit everything?

Thank you, Jacek

How do we target those devices during the app submission process? There is no new device in the device list. Is 'Fire TV Stick' or 'Fire TV Stick with Alexa ...' going to cover those?

why Amazon prime video only works in selected countries (like spain) with Fire TV basic edition and not with fire tv + alexa?

https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201624360

Any technical reason?

is a perpetual decission or maybe when Alexga gets spanish support, firestick + alexa will work in spain?
