How to Set up the Fire TV Stick Remote Control App

Once you've downloaded and installed the Fire TV Stick remote app on your phone or compatible tablet, you're ready to set it up with your Fire TV. To accomplish this, you'll need access to both your Fire TV and your phone.

Here's how to set up the Fire TV Stick remote control app:

  1. Launch the Fire TV Stick remote app.

  2. Tap Sign In.

  3. Enter the email and password for your Amazon account, and then tap Sign In.

  4. Select your Fire TV Stick, or any other Fire TV device you own.

    If you don't see your device, make sure that it's plugged in and connected to the same network as your phone.

  5. Turn on your television, and switch to the input associated with your Fire TV Stick, or whichever Fire TV device you're trying to control.

  6. Look for the Fire TV Stick remote app connection request code number.

  7. Enter the code in your Fire TV Stick remote app.

  8. The app will connect to your Fire TV Stick or other Fire TV device.

Requirements to Use the Fire TV Phone App

The Fire TV Stick remote app is available for Android and iOS, but it doesn't work with every device. Here are the basic requirements that your device needs to meet to use the Fire TV Stick remote app:

The Fire TV Stick remote app can also control other Fire TV devices, including the Fire TV Cube and Fire TV 4K. You can download this single app and use it as a remote for all of your Fire TV devices.

How to Use the Fire TV Stick Remote App

The Fire TV Stick remote app mimics the same functionality you're used to from the physical Fire TV Stick remote. It has all the same buttons, and they do all of the same things.

The only differences between the remote app and the physical remote are:

  • The app has a touchpad in the middle instead of the circle button.
  • The app has a built-in keyboard.
  • The app includes a shortcut list that allows you to launch any of your apps whenever you want.

Here's how to use to Fire TV Stick remote app:

  1. Tap anywhere on the touchpad area to select the currently highlighted item on your Fire TV.

  2. With your finger pressed down in the touchpad area, move your finger left, right, up, or down to scroll in that direction.

  3. To move your selection without scrolling, swipe from the middle of the touchpad in the direction you want to move.

  4. Tap the keyboard icon in the upper left corner to access the keyboard.

    Voice controls are only available in certain countries. If you live in an area where Amazon doesn't allow voice controls, downloading this app will not enable voice controls.

  5. Tap and hold the microphone, then say what you're looking for, or say the name of an app you want your Fire TV to open.

  6. Tap the Apps & Games icon, located between the microphone and keyboard icons, to launch the Apps & Games shortcut menu.

    Tap any app or game in this list to instantly launch it on your Fire TV Stick or other Fire TV device.

  7. The return, home, menu, reverse, play/pause, and fast forward buttons all work the same way they do on the physical remote.

    Awesome!!!

    Ok so know that this isn’t a perfect 5 star rating because NOTHING is perfect. Take that into account and this app update is awesome. The old swipe feature had its place but this looks more like a real remote and that’s what we’re all used to. The app is easy to pair and comes in very handy because the remotes that come with the Fire Sticks are crap. We have 3 Fire Sticks in the house (2 HD and 1 4K) and only one remote still works. It’s the remote for the 4K Fire Stick and we decided to re-pair it with the bedroom tv. The “d-pad” on the app needs to be smaller, it should be at the bottom of the screen for people with smaller hands like my wife and there needs to be more options that would be on a basic remote (like a sleep button or volume control) but overall this update to the remote app is a HUGE step in the right direction. Adding the remote listening feature, which is available for the Roku remote app (we have two Rokus as well), would be awesome too.

    Easy fix

    I usually don’t do reviews but here it goes... this app has always worked great for me especially since I have lost the physical remote. But recently for about a week or so when I attempted to watch anything the app would not let go up,down,left or right I could however click on the setting button and it would immediately take me to settings but again I could not go up,down,left or right and when I clicked the home button it immediately went to the home button but I still couldn’t move around. I came on here in the reviews to see if anyone was having this issue I had attempted to unplug and re-plug the fire stick and I was still have the same issue. Today I decided to contact support through the app and selected call me, so I immediately got a call waited less than 1 minute and they actually helped me. She was able to take control of my screen and see what I was talking about she had me troubleshoot by reinstalling this app on my phone than unplugging the fire stick from my tv wait 2-3 minutes than plug it back in and to my surprise it WORKED i guess waiting before replugging helped because I had unplugged the fire stick before but not that long just like a couple seconds so yeah hope someone can find this helpful.

    It’s very good, but needs improvement

    This app was very useful when I lost my fire stick remote (idk how I lost it but I suspect it’s in my room), my mom mentioned it to me, and I reinstalled it. (my mom must’ve had the app previously) It took me by surprise of how good it was! I functioned just like my fire stick! (My fire stick was awesome btw ;-;) But there is two things that irritates me. And one of them is when my phone turns off automatically, it would have a little “Reconnecting” thing. This didn’t bug me much, until now. Now, if you leave the app open for a long time, the “Reconnecting” thing will be a bit long. (Not too long, but enough to annoy me) And, there is the last thing I need to complain about lol. If you leave the app for a long time, the thing I just said above is if your fast enough to come back. If you leave it for a long enough time, when you come back to the app, it shows how to connect to your fire stick TV. Now, this happens a lot, and it’s really stupid cause it takes so many taps just to be lucky and actually connect to it. Let me get straight to the point. Sometimes if I try to connect to it, (which means tap on what my TV is called) it doesn’t work. It’s like a frozen screen, but it’s not. And if I hit the wrong thing, which happens often, It would send me to “Add Devices”. Please fix this, it would be better for me.

    Lost your Amazon Fire TV remote again? Fear not, you can download a free app for your iPhone or Android smartphone that will let you control the device remotely. Here’s how.

    First, you’ll need to download free the Amazon Fire TV app. If you have an iPhone or iPad, download it from the App Store. If you have an Android device, get the app from Google Play.

    Next, make sure you’re connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the Fire TV device you want to control. The app works through Wi-Fi, so there is no need for a direct line-of-sight operation like an IR TV remote.

    Once the app is downloaded, launch it, then sign in to your Amazon.com account. The app will present you a list of nearby Fire TV devices you can control.

    Amazon Fire TV App: Selecting a device to connect to

    Tap on the Fire TV device you’d like to control, and look at the TV hooked up to that device. It will display a four-digit code to type into your Fire TV app so the two can link up.

    This security measure is so random people who happen to be on your Wi-Fi network won’t be able to control your Fire TV.

    Entering a passcode to link Fire TV app with Fire TV

    Once you’re connected, you can swipe up, down, left, and right in the main touchpad-like area of the app to navigate as if you are pushing the up, down, left, and right buttons on the remote. Likewise, the Back, Home, hamburger, rewind, play/pause, and fast-forward buttons all function the same as on a physical Fire TV remote.

    The Amazon Fire TV App Remote Main Screen

    You can even search Alexa on your Fire TV using the app by pulling down on the microphone tab at the top of the screen and speaking into your device’s microphone. The results will show up on the TV.

    Doing an Alexa voice search on Fire TV app

    If you’d prefer to search using text input (or if you ever need to enter a parental control passcode), tap on the Keyboard button, and you’ll be taken to a soft keyboard screen.

    Amazon FireTV app keyboard

    You can use the Fire TV app to control multiple Fire TV devices from all over the house—wherever you have a local Wi-Fi connection—so you don’t need to be very close to the TV set. That comes in handy if, say, you’re cooking from the kitchen and putting a show on in the other room for your kids. Or, you can convince your neighbors that you have a haunted TV set.

    And, if you do find your Fire TV remote again (it’s probably in the couch cushions), you can use both the app and the remote simultaneously if you want. Happy watching!

      I love this

      My son loses my control a lot so I got this app. Now no matter what I will be able to control my tv. The only two downsides to this remote is one I can speak into Alexa and have her go to what I want. I have to do everything manually. The actual remote gives me that option. The second thing would be, you can use this same app for another tv. I have two fire sticks.

      Incredibly slow communication with the tv/stick through a fast network

      On the up side, it works. I can use the buttons just like I do on the original remote. However, even though I have a relatively fast network, I was unimpressed with the amount of delay between pressing the buttons and response in the tv/stick applications. Press home and wait # seconds then press down and wait # seconds then press down again and wait # seconds then press right and wait # seconds, ... then press the center circle to select the app and wait. Whew, I almost forgot what I wanted to watch before I got to it. Multiply the number of button presses by the number of seconds each takes and you could spend a lot of time waiting for responses. Imagine what this means if you want to fast forward or rewind a certain amount within the application.

      Ads

      It was a great app at the start. The ads have became a little to forced and they keep getting worse. Basically to keep pushing you toward purchasing a subscription. The app use to allow you the keyboard function at first. Now without a purchase you can’t use it. It was wrong to update the app saying that it was for fixing the bugs in the app. When in actuality it was just to update more ads and to take things away.
      So please spare your customers and potential customers like me. Just make the app where you must purchase it. So we can move to another app. Which I am currently searching and deciding right now.
