If you want to install and use the Amazon Fire TV app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Amazon Fire TV in the search bar and press Search. Click on Amazon Fire TV application icon. A window of Amazon Fire TV on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

Free On iTunes

Thank you for reading this tutorial. Have a nice day!

  • Bad connection

    By dmartinez811
    I first discovered the app when a girl friend connected it to change what I was playing, I thought this could be handy! A few months after I got my fire stick the remote stopped working, I thought it was strange, changed the batteries but nothing. That’s when I really started using the app. It worked great at first but as days went on it would take a long time to find and connect to the fire stick. I tried my controller again which magically worked again. About a year later my dog chewed the controller so only the up and left button worked as well as the other so I couldn’t use it on the home screen since the down and right button didn’t work. Again same problem with the app, it can connect right away at times. Sometimes I have to try and connect 3-5 times meaning closing and opening the app. Other than getting connected the app works great! I like the keyboard feature which didn’t work for my iPhone 6s until the 11 generation update.
  • Please give us a better update with this app

    I’ve been using this app for maybe a year now and I love the fact that we have this as a backup as our other remote is broken. Now, since using this app, it has been a lifesaver! But, for some reason it doesn’t always want to connect to my fire tv and when I’m selecting it seems the “button” gets stuck. It’ll skip all over the place! I don’t know if it’s the version of iPhone I have (6 Plus) or just the app itself. And sometimes Alexa doesn’t always work within this app either. I might just need to buy another remote and simply use this for emergency cases. Which I’m sure that is what was intended when created, however, it doesn’t seem practical to use daily with the issues that I am experiencing. Overall, it’s great in a bind and although the issues I am experiencing are frustrating, it gets the job done!
  • Only use if desperate!

    This App is great if your batteries on your physical remote go out or if you lose your remote. There are two main issues that I have with this App. The first one are connectivity to the actual fire stick. Sometimes the app doesn’t want to connect to the fire stick or there are issues while using the app. The second issue is the fact that the home button is right above the pause/play button and in order to get the pause/play you have to swipe up from the bottom of your device. The issue is the app automatically times out the pause and play button leaving the home button in the exact same place where you might have wanted to press pause/play. I’ve hit the home button many times thinking it was the pause/play button and it’s so frustrating to be watching a show and get completely kicked out to the home screen. Developers need to please fix that!
  • Good initially, but overall disappointing.

    When I first got it, this was so much easier to navigate through my firestick. Before getting this app, my issue always was me needing to pause whatever I was watching and not able to because I couldn’t find my remote. I got this for my iPad and iPhone and it was great. But two nights ago, something completely random happened and now all of a sudden the app won’t connect to my fire stick, the Sign In button doesn’t work, most buttons on the app won’t work initially either. I deleted the app and redownloaded it and nothing changed. I checked with my firestick tv, my echo, my WiFi/internet and everything was fine, it all came back to this app. I’m really not sure what happened but it’s a pretty annoying let down to say the least.

  • Missing volume control

    By 浩浩睡觉觉
    Please add volume control
  • App not connecting

    By Woahdaddy
    I recently just updated to the app and now it does not connect and I have to end up looking for the real remote which is usually not around or sometimes the remote acts up.
  • Gets the job done

    By Ihlfdvjk
    Too cheap to pay for new batteries for my remote
  • Used to work better

    By Freddy Lacy
    Lately I noticed that the navigation isn't what it just to be. Slow response, then all of a sudden starts going through the screen choices but it jumps way to far from the intended selection. Not sure what happened. Previous version worked better.
  • Very bad connection

    By getyourishtogether
    Everytime I connect the app to my fire stick, it only lasts for about 30 seconds and then it's disconnected. This is highly annoying.
  • Good Start

    By mindeman87
    Review in for use with DVR Wish I could search for programs in app. Wish I could select channels to display. Only want to see ~6 of the 75 channels I have. A little more customization would be nice. Good start, but leaving Tivo behind need a few more areas to customize. Ability to stream live content is awesome.
  • Was a great app but last update.

    By Colleen514
    Love the app. But the last with the last update it is hard to keep connected to My fire TV. Even while I am using it sometimes disconnects.
  • Great app...

    By Keeb69
    Love the app, I have more than 1 Fire TV and can control all from my phone. Update, this is the second time Amazon has put out an update to improve the app and it has stopped working making it useless! The app now won’t even connect to any of my fire TVs, even though they are listed within the app.

    By SLD2525
    Will not connect at all. Even after resetting the phone to get an earlier version, the app will no longer connect at all. The new version also seems to want to make you log in to amazon account—did not have to before. When working properly, this was one of the best apps ever—it worked identically to the physical remote. Spent hours trying every imaginable fix, and it won’t connect to any of my fire sticks on either of two accounts.
  • Always freezing!!!

    By ambro1986
    My wonderful husband lost our remote so I’ve been having to rely on this app for the last couple of days. It constantly quits or freezes and when I try to sign back in it requires a code (even after checking the box for it not to require a code) and sits there ‘trying’ to sign back in. Nothing wrong with my internet or cell service. This is ridiculous!!
