In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step. So let’s get started!

Step 1: Enable Screen Mirroring on Firestick
To begin, make sure screen mirroring is enabled on your Firestick. Follow these steps:
- On your Firestick home screen, navigate to “Settings” using the remote control.
- Select “Display & Sounds”.
- Scroll down and choose “Enable Display Mirroring”.
- Confirm your selection by selecting “Enable” on the prompt.
Note: Keep your Firestick settings open as we will need them in later steps.
Step 2: Connect Android Device to Wi-Fi Network
If you haven’t already done so, connect your Android device to the same Wi-Fi network as your Firestick. This is important for establishing a connection between the two devices.
Step 3: Open Screen Mirroring Settings on Android Device
To mirror your Android screen, follow these steps:
- Open the “Settings” app on your Android device.
- Scroll down and tap on “Connected Devices”.
- Select “Connection preferences”.
- Tap on “Cast” or “Screen mirroring”. The exact wording may vary depending on your device model and Android version.
Step 4: Connect Android Device to Firestick
Now, let’s connect your Android device to the Firestick:
- In the Cast/Screen Mirroring settings on your Android device, you should see a list of available devices. Tap on your Firestick from the list.
- If prompted for a PIN, check your Firestick screen and enter the PIN displayed there.
- Once connected, your Android device screen will be mirrored on your TV through the Firestick.
No Devices Found
If you don’t see your Firestick listed in the Cast/Screen Mirroring settings:
- Make sure both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
- Restart both devices and try again.
- Check if screen mirroring is enabled on your Firestick (refer to Step 1).
Poor Connection or Lag
If you experience poor connection or lag during screen mirroring:
- Move your Android device closer to the Wi-Fi router for a stronger signal.
- Close any unnecessary apps running in the background on your Android device.
Note: Screen mirroring performance may vary depending on the capabilities of your Android device and Wi-Fi network strength.
