Over the past decade, movie and TV streaming has gone from a niche and cheesy way to watch your favorite entertainment to the way most people spend their free time. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and other streaming services have become giants, with their original programming often winning major awards like Emmys and even Oscars. The flow of content isn't slowing down either, with major new streaming services from Disney and Warner Bros. released in 2022 and 2022. So, with the streaming wars heating up, there's never been a better time to jump into the world of Amazon Fire TV, and more specifically, the Amazon Fire TV Stick voucher. $40 market



A lesser-known but powerful feature of the Amazon Fire TV Stick is the ability to mirror the screen of a smartphone or tablet onto your TV screen. This lets you do things like watch movies or TV shows from your phone, or video chat on the big screen, or play games with a big screen. You can mirror the display only, or the display plus audio. Setting up mirroring is quite simple, but in this article, I'll walk you through the process.

Enable Mirroring on Your Fire TV

The first step in the process is to enable mirroring on your Fire TV Stick.

  1. Access your Fire TV menu by pressing the Home button.
  2. Move right until you reach Parameters and click on it.
  3. Aller vers Display and sounds.
  4. To choose Enable display mirroring.

Quickboot mirroring

Your Amazon Fire Stick also gives you a quick start option for mirroring. Hold down the Home button on the Fire Stick remote and choose Mirroring. Once selected, connect your Android device to Fire TV. If you want to stop mirroring, just press any button on the remote.



Once mirroring is enabled, your Fire TV Stick will enter responsive mode where it will wait for input from the Android device. It will display a screen like this:

Your Fire TV Stick will stay in this receive mode until you press a button on the remote.

Enable mirroring on your phone or tablet

The next step is to enable Miracast on your phone or tablet. In order to mirror your device to Fire TV Stick, the device will need to support Miracast. If you have a tablet, phone, or even a desktop computer made after around 2012, it should natively support Miracast. Miracast is a wireless protocol that allows the sharing of audio and video information between WiFi-enabled devices. However, since each phone manufacturer tends to create their own versions of the Android operating system, this feature does not always have the same name on every phone.

Open your device's settings page and search for one of the following phrases:

  • Miracast
  • Screen mirror
  • AllShareCast
  • Broadcast screen
  • Wireless display
  • Wireless mirroring
  • Quick connection
  • Smart View
  • Screen sharing

If you can't find this feature, you can check with WiFi Alliance Device List to make sure your phone has it. Once you find the screen mirroring feature settings page, enable the service and your Fire TV Stick should start mirroring whatever is on your Android device's screen.



If your phone has a version of Android earlier than 4.2, it probably does not support Miracast natively. You're not unlucky, however; there are apps for your Fire TV Stick that will let you mirror from your device.

Mirroring via third-party apps

There are third-party apps that will let you mirror devices that don't support Miracast. There are a number of apps to choose from, but for this article, I'm going to show you how to work with AllCast, as it's one of the most popular and reliable apps and supports a lot of devices.

  • Download the AllCast app on Fire TV

From the home screen, swipe left to the search bar and use the on-screen keyboard to type in “Allcast”. Find the AllCast app and install it on your device.


  • Install the AllCast app on your Android device

Search AllCast app on play store and install it on your device.

  • Choose the media you want to mirror

Launch AllCast on your device and on your Fire TV Stick, and it will give you the option to choose the media you want to mirror with your Fire TV Stick. You will then have full control over the playback options.

Conclusion

Mirroring content from your Android device is quite simple, even if your device is not Miracast compatible. In addition to built-in Miracast support, third-party apps like AllCast will let you stream to your Fire TV Stick from almost any device.
