Use Display Mirroring on Amazon Fire TV

You can wirelessly display your compatible phone or tablet screen and audio on your Amazon Fire TV device.

You can mirror your display on most phones or tablets that support Miracast. Some of these devices include:

  • Fire phone
  • Fire HDX tablets
  • Fire HD 8 (5th Generation)
  • Fire HD 10 (5th Generation)
  • Devices running Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) or higher (performance may vary).

Important: Before you begin, make sure your Amazon Fire TV device and Miracast-enabled device are turned on and within 30 feet of each other. If your Miracast device isn't registered to the same Amazon account as your Fire TV, also make sure both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

To quickly start display mirroring, press and hold the Home Home Button
