Use Display Mirroring on Fire TV

You can use your Fire TV device to wirelessly display your compatible phone or tablet screen on your TV screen.

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

  • Android devices running Android OS 4.2 (Jelly Bean) or higher (performance can vary)
  • Kindle Fire HDX 7" (3rd Generation) and Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" (3rd Generation)
  • Fire HDX 8.9 (4th Generation)
  • Fire HD 8 (5th Generation) and Fire HD 10 (5th Generation)
  • Fire phone

Important: Make sure that your Fire TV device and compatible mobile device are turned on and within 30 feet of each other. If your mobile device isn't registered to the same Amazon account as your Fire TV device, make sure that both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Amazon Fire TV (3rd Generation) does not support display mirroring. Fire TV Cube does not support display mirroring.

To quickly start display mirroring, press and hold the Home Home Button 
		  button on your Fire TV remote, and select the Mirroring option. Then connect your compatible mobile device. Press any button on your remote to stop display mirroring.
