When it comes to online streaming devices, there is very little that can beat the Amazon Fire TV. One of the best things about this device is its simplicity and functionality. Just like most other streaming devices, it allows you access to the most popular on-demand streaming services.
Since it is tightly integrated with Amazon’s streaming services, you also get the additional benefits like voice control and search Amazon Prime. So, there is a lot to love about Amazon Fire TV, but there are also some things that you can do to enhance your streaming experience. Let’s take a look at 4 things you can do to improve your Fire TV setup.
Amazon Fire TV Remote App
If you have the Amazon Fire TV Stick or an older model of the Fire TV Box, you may not have the voice search option. Luckily, you can rectify this with the Fire TV Remote App. This app is available for download on the Android and iOS store. When using this app, it is important that your phone should be on the same Wi-Fi network as the Fire TV, so you should switch from mobile to Wi-Fi when using it.
Apart from the microphone, this app also has the same functionality as the included remote. Additionally, the app also features a keyboard to make username and password entries easier and faster.
Adding Kodi to your Fire Tv is one of the best ways to gain access to thousands of additional content at no extra charge. Kodi is an online media center that gives you access to many different add-ons, each with their own user interface and library. Installing Kodi is also incredibly easy. To add Kodi to your Fire TV yourself, simply check out these tips from Troypoint.
You can also click on the different add-on titles to see how you can install the add-ons that you prefer. When using Kodi, it is important to install the VPN to ensure that you have complete online anonymity and protection.
Amazon constantly tracks your Fire TV activities for optimal marketing purposes. To stop the Fire TV from tracking you, go to Settings > Preferences > Advertising Id, and switch off Internet-Based Ads.
Amongst the awesome add-on products that Amazon makes for Fire TV is the Amazon Fire Game Controller. Some of the games in the Amazon library may be difficult to play or even inaccessible without this controller. It connects with your Fire TV device via Bluetooth so it wireless and completely compatible with any of the games included.
For non-serious gamers, this can make the Fire TV a viable alternative to mainstream gaming consoles. If you already have a controller that is not the Amazon Fire Game Controller, you can connect it by going to Settings > Controllers & Bluetooth Devices. You can also go here to connect Bluetooth headphones if you don’t want to disturb others or if you’d like to have a unique multimedia experience.
