How To Get The Amazon Firestick Remote On Your Phone
Last Updated: December 30, 2019
The Firestick device is an amazing product that allows you to transform your normal TV into a smart TV. As long as it has an HDMI input terminal to plug the Firestick on, you can use it.
Once installed, you can use it you watch YouTube videos, play Spotify music, play games, and launch different apps. You control the device with the remote control that it comes with the package. But because it is very small, compared with other controllers, losing or misplacing it is pretty easy. Therefore, it is good to have a backup controller just in case. However, you surely don’t want to buy another controller.
Don’t worry; fortunately, if you have a fire tablet or a smartphone, you can use it as a controller. You just need the Fire TV Stick Remote App. The installation process is exactly the same. The difference is that you will download the app from either the Amazon store, Play Store, or Apple Store.
But back to business; let’s start with the guide.
To begin with, open your smartphone store and type Amazon Fire TV.
Select the first option and hit the install button and wait a few seconds.
Once the download is finished, you can open it from the Store or at your smartphone/tablet main screen.
As soon as you launch the app, you must sign in to speed up the scan for nearby Firestick devices. Just click the sign-in option, which is at the bottom of the app.
After you sign in, all the devices linked to that account should appear on the screen. Before continuing, make sure that both the device and the TV are on. Click it and the app will scan and connect to the specific Firestick device.
With the TV and Firestick on type the code, which is on your TV, in your smartphone app. It is a four-digit code.
Once your smartphone and Firestick are paired, you can use the app. Pay attention to the instructions that will appear. Otherwise, you won’t know how to use the app. Your smartphone should look like this:
Because we know that you didn’t pay attention, here we will explain how to use the app:
To swing through the screen, put your finger down on your smartphone screen and swipe it as you please. To select anything, press the screen with your finger and that’s all.
If you want to type an app name, click on the keyboard, which is at the top right corner (red rectangle). Also, if you want to browse the apps, click on the app icon, which is next to the keyboard (yellow rectangle). There you will find all the apps that you have installed.
You can use voice command, as long as it is supported in your country. To use it, click on the green rectangle. The icon is a microphone, which is at the top of your phone screen. If you need to change the settings, click on the gear icon at the top left corner (grey rectangle). It will grant you access to all configurations.
That wraps up everything! Now you can use your phone or tablet as a controller.
