If you want to try a different method, you’ve come to the right place. We will show you one app that can make your life easier. This is an app you can rely on. You will use its buttons to navigate the Fire TV. If you haven’t heard of an app like that, we suggest you check out the Alexa remote app.
This is something that can replace your remote control on your Fire TV. It’s quite handy. In this guide, we will show you how you can install the app and what you can do with it. Here is how you can turn on your Fire TV with just an app.
The first thing you need to do is go to the App Store on your mobile device. Now, this app is available for both Android and iOS. So, no matter what kind of phone you are using, you can still download it. Type in “Amazon Fire TV” and look for the app.
This is a digital or a virtual remote control that has the same options and features as a regular Firestick remote. To use this app, you need to download the latest version. The 4.0.3 or above for Android, to be exact. And 7.0+ for the iOS.
When you find the app you want to download, click on it and install it on your mobile device.
Launch the app. This is the first screen you will see. Here, on the bottom side of the menu, click on “Sign In”. You will want to sign in with your account to use it. Make sure to sign in with the same account you are using on your Fire TV. Type the password and username.
After you sign in, you will see your Fire TV. Click on it to connect to it. Now the app will ask you for a 4 digit code. What you want to do is look for that code on your Fire TV. Turn on your Fire TV and type in the exact same code you see. When you are done, confirm it by clicking on the checkmark in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
Now you will see this screen pop up. This is your virtual digital remote control. It is connected to your Fire TV. You can use it as a regular remote. You can forward or pause movies. You can go to the home screen, select the menu, and navigate through the settings. You can select apps from the menu and more. Everything that you can do on your Firestick remote control, you can do it from this app.
