The following tutorial will show you How to Install APKs on Firestick/Fire TV with an Android Phone or Tablet.

This is a fabulous feature that is extremely handy for those of us who want to transfer applications from our mobile device or tablet directly to our streaming device without going through the installation process twice.

How to Set up Firestick to Install APKs with Android

In order to sync our Android device, we must first enable some settings on the Firestick. In this guide, we are using a Fire TV Stick 4K Max, however, this will also work for any variation of Firestick or Fire TV that you have.

The first thing we must do is allow Unknown Sources and enable ADB Debugging. This is also the first step to “jailbreaking a Firestick” so many of us will already have these turned on.

If you haven’t already, you can find out how to do this by using the guide below.

How to Enable Developer Options on Firestick

With Unknown Sources turned on, we will now enable ADB Debugging which allows us to connect to other devices on the same network.

Enable ADB Debugging

1. From the home screen, hover over Settings and select My Fire TV.

2. Choose Developer Options.

3. Select ADB Debugging and make sure it is set to ON.

With ADB debugging enabled, we will now verify our Network and make sure that it is the same Wi-Fi Network that our Android is connected to.

    Installation was as directed and easy. When transferring apps from my mobile phone to my fire tv, the installation process went well, however when I executed the app on my fire tv, the display filled 1/3 the screen and could not be adjusted.
