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

Download on Andriod, Iphone
Free On iTunes

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

  • This app is a NO ...

    By MeKayLOVE
    This app is convenient especially for me because my remote disconnected from my firestick and completely malfunctioned. (Only reason i gave it 2 stars for the convenience) So the app came in handy for me to be able to watch my firestick (for a moment). However it continuously discounts from my television and then won’t reconnect, so then I’m disabled from watching on my firestick again. I’m just glad I have an actual remote being delivered because this app is trash. The accuracy of the touch of buttons and big screen in the middle to portray the up down left right is completely off. I really wouldn’t suggest the use of this app unless you desperately need to, like I had to because of my remote malfunctioning. But I CANT WAIT to get my remote in the mail because I can’t keep trying to reconnect this app to the tv, and the only solution it says is “make sure you’re signed in under the same account as your firestick tv” 🙄 I am but it still won’t reconnect. A waste. I suggest to do some modifications update/upgrade on this application
  • 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.
  • App is awesome. But, there are glaring issues that need to be addressed.

    Great app. I love being able to use my iPhone to type and search while surfing Netflix. The one issue I am having difficulty with is that, and this is strange, but, the r and s letters do not type out on screen. What I mean is if I type SEARCH into any field, this is what it looks like EACH because the S and R are not being in-putted on-screen. My phone works fine. It’s the app that won’t translate those letters. Fix this and I’ll change my review to a positive 5 stars. Also, I’m taking a star off because I’m sick and tired of this fragile app not allowing me to use my phone. Doesn’t happen every time, but enough times and of course at the most inopportune moments. My batteries in the remote died. Tried using my phone to navigate the options of the app. Huh. The fire stick isn’t showing up on the available fire stick options. Guess I’ll have to unplug it yet again. Seriously, that’s the ONLY WAY TO RECONNECT. It’s not my phone either. This issue reaches across multiple devices.
  • Please give us a better update with this app

    By Mom In Training 256
    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!

  • Won’t connect

    By kamkat219
    Works for about 5 minutes. From then on it will not connect to the fire stick or my account. I wish these app developers would really test their product before we waste our time like this.
  • Reconnecting issues

    By Sdubya55
    When I put my phone on standby (black screen) when I open the app it always has trouble reconnecting after a movie has started. I always have to power down my phone to get it to go into reconnect status. Irritating
  • Constantly will not connect

    By Eric8705
    I’ve wanted to give this app a shot (as I’ve had it for 3 months now), but I am curious to as why you can not connect to it 75% of the time.
  • Needs to restart

    By Jamilyo
    When I use it, if my phone turns the screen off, trying to get back to it doesn’t work. It just says it’s tryna to connect. I have to restart the app for it to work again 8 times out of 10. It’s a pest.
  • When it works, it’s good

    By Kimseclectic
    I like that I can use the remote from my phone, but it rarely works without me having to force close it. After opening the app, it’s fine. But as soon as my phone falls asleep, anytime I try and use it it just says “connecting “ and hangs, and is unusable without force quitting. Its really annoying. After the last update it briefly would only hang for a minute, but now it’s back to being unusable again. I would love it if you all could permanently fix this issue.

    By lillokita19
    This app is HORRIBLE. It has disconnected on me so many times and either takes about 10 try’s to reconnect or it doesn’t at all and after a a couple days when I try again, a code will pop up to enter in my phone and it’ll start working again. BUT only for a little and then it will disconnect again. There is no way to unpair the tv that you can just reconnect it whenever it does disconnect. So you have to wait u til it decides it wants to work again. HORRIBLE!!!!
  • The worst

    By Seattlehaze
    I lost my Firestick remote (how does that happen in a one bedroom condo?) but was thrilled to find that I could use an app to replace it—until I used this app. It consistently disconnects or is unable to connect to my WiFi despite a brand new router and modem. I can’t wait to move and buy a smart tv so I don’t have to deal with this piece of crap any longer. Oh. And if you want to buy a new remote, it’s pretty much the same as buying a new Firestick.
  • Poorly designed and lots of glitches

    By 1226 roselle
    I suppose it’s convenient when the fire the remote stops working (which seems to happen often) or its across the room... but for being amazon, it’s horribly designed and always seems to have the following glitches: 1. It never stays connected. I’m constantly having to reconnect it to the device 2. This one is the worst... it automatically goes to a keyboard function or something. Every time I open it up I first need to click ‘back’ to get to the mousepad type screen where it actually is functional. Drives me crazy.
  • Fire stick 4k

    By mainmast43
    I’m on my 3rd one. Once again it has stopped working. About time to give up on this app I guess.
  • Cannot connect

    By sperez77
    The app often is unable to connect to the Fire Stick.
