    Amazon Fire TV - voice controller to be used for SKYPE possible

    Hi there
    was wondering if it's possible to use the voice controller on the Amazon fire TV box / stick as a microphone to make / receive skype calls.

    As it's (the Amazon fire TV box) an android device installing SKYPE on it isn't a problem and you can use the controller to input numbers / select contacts (just like other apps such as Kodi or those which require user / password).

    Anybody done this yet from an Amazon box connected to a large TV. Rather fancy doing that.

    Note unless your TV has a webcam enabled via USB or something you'll only be able to do audio - but that should be enough.

    A lot of TV's will accept a webcam input via USB / other port used as input e.g from videocams etc. So it's only the voice part that is the problem and it ought to be possible from the Amazon controller.
