Casting to an Amazon Fire TV Stick is a useful option. It can help you view the contents of your laptop, smartphone or tablet on the TV screen connected to the Amazon Fire TV Stick.

It's easy to set up with a Windows 10 or 11 PC or Android device. It is slightly more difficult on an iOS device.

We will show you how to launch all three options.

Prepare to cast on Fire TV Stick

Your Windows 10/11 PC and Android device have native throughput, while an iOS device requires a third-party app.

You will need to enable both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on your devices. Whenever using Bluetooth, it's a good idea to restart your computer or device before setup. Windows 11 has some new Bluetooth settings that should improve its functionality.

Also, make sure your devices are close enough to each other before casting.
