How to Enable Screen Mirroring from Android to Firestick/ Fire TV: A Complete Guide

If you are a movie or TV buff, you already know how important streaming services are. With so many services available, including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and others, streaming has become the most popular way to access movies and TV shows.

The Amazon Fire TV Stick is a lesser-known but powerful tool that allows users to mirror their phone screens or tablets to their TVs. Whether you want to play movies or TV shows, video chat with your friends or family, or want to play games on a big screen, the Fire TV Stick can mirror your screen along with the audio.

In this article, we will provide you with an easy-to-understand, step-by-step guide on how to enable screen mirroring from your Android phone to your Firestick/ Fire TV.

How to Mirror Your Phone Screen to Firestick/ Fire TV

Mirroring your Android phone screen to your Firestick is easy. However, the steps vary depending on the type of device.

On Android phones:

Before you start, make sure that both your Android phone and your Firestick/ Fire TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Once done, follow the steps below:

Enable Screen Mirroring on Firestick/ Fire TV:

  • Press and hold the Home button on your Firestick remote.
  • Select Mirroring to enable it.
  • You can also enable mirroring in Settings > Display and Sounds > Screen mirroring.

Enable Screen Mirroring on your Android:

  • Unlock your phone and head to Settings > Connections.
  • Enable ‘Screen Mirroring.’
  • You can also find the option in the quick settings tile with different names like Wireless Display, Screen Cast, Smart View, or Miracast (depending on the make and model of your phone).

Connect Firestick/ Fire TV device:

  • Once you have enabled screen mirroring, the name of your Firestick/ Fire TV should appear in the list of available devices.
  • Select the device and wait for screen mirroring to start.
  • Make sure your Fire TV and your phone are connected to the same wireless network.

No Built-in Screen Mirroring? Use Third-party Apps

Most standard Android devices do not allow users to mirror their phone screens on TV due to Google-imposed restrictions, except for Chromecast. In that case, you can use third-party apps to mirror your screen. However, it may not be as smooth as the built-in screen mirroring. Follow the steps below:

  • Download and install the Cast to TV app on your phone.
  • Connect the phone and Fire TV to the same WiFi network.
  • Open the app and wait for it to automatically detect your Fire TV device.
  • Once detected, touch the device name to start screen mirroring.
