Amazon Fire TV Remote App Review

Amazon Fire TV Remote is a mobile application to control the eponymous set-top box. The application is designed for smartphones and tablets with iOS and Android operating systems. Fire TV Remote App makes it easy to manage your media player's functionality with the touch screen display. Connect to your Amazon Fire TV and download it for free to broadcast media to your TV screen from any distance and control it without using a remote control.

To use all the features of this mobile application, you will need to have a Fire TV set-top box. You will not be able to use this program to control third-party media players. At the same time, the developer of Amazon Mobile LLC has made sure that the Fire TV Remote App will work consistently on all types of mobile devices with the current version of the operating system.


When you first launch the Fire TV mobile app, the web interface seems too simple. The developers paid all attention to the functionality and usability of the program without adding beautiful controls. Immediately after the launch and authorization are connected to the media player, after which you will see the main menu. The interface is made in dark color.


The developers have created a Fire TV program for easy management of the Amazon media set-top box functions. Key features:

  • Voice search;
  • Touch-screen menu control;
  • Text input via the keyboard on your smartphone or tablet;
  • Video and audio playback control;
  • Quick search in the media library.

Extended functionality allows you to eliminate the remote control included with the media console Fire TV. To access all the functions, you need to register and synchronize with the connected device.

Please note that you cannot play games on the set-top box via the application. Use the Amazon Fire TV Game Controller for this purpose.

App purchases

Mobile app Fire TV is completely free for download in the App Store and Play Market services. Built-in shopping is not provided so that you can use all the functionality without restrictions.

In Conclusion

The Fire TV Remote App has been downloaded over 10 million times, which confirms its popularity. But users do not always appreciate the program positively. The developers take care of ease of operation, but less attention was paid to the quality of the interface and the correctness of all functions. In some cases, you may encounter errors and failures during registration.

Use the Fire Remote App if you want to manage your TV Stick from Amazon more conveniently and faster, or if you are far away from your TV.
